55 flash fiction friday #78: all that jazz


sing it, ella
They say living well is the best revenge.
(Now you say you're lonely)
I have to agree.
(You cried the long night through)
Cause life? Is damned good these days.
(Well you can cry me a river, cry me a river)
And I feel too good
(I cried a river over you)
To feel bad.

 Graciously hosted by G-Man.

Note: I suppose there's a little non-fiction in this one. The last three non-lyric lines are certainly true enough. But mainly this is just a vibe from the photograph.

Got to love any song with this rhyme:

"...told me love was too plebian...

told me you were through with me and..."

Plus, what other song has been recorded by both Joe Cocker and Anne Murray? No other, I'll bet!

Fireblossom said...

Er, that should be "plebeian"! Mama Zen used to call us that all the time, but none of us could read, to look it up!

As the say, living well is the best revenge. This is delicious.

Once met an ex-girl friend who had dumped me as not being educated as she left her swanky university. The sweetness of the revenge was that I met her ten years later as a lecturer (professor) in social policy with a string of qualifications[Msc(Economic &Social Studies); BA(Hons); CQSW; PGCE(FE); Dip LCW].my 55 here

this is a great 55, i felt the twinge of uncomfortable feelings thinking of past relations that ended badly.

"Living is the best revenge"...

I keep living despite being in two super hurricanes, earthquakes, volcano eruptions, three times hit by cars on my bike, car breakdown in the Mojave desert, etc... I wonder who I'm getting revenge on?

We have all cried a river over people...

Have a great day.
