Patriots Diner


PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

It was one of those pseudo-1950s diners, you know the type, all chrome and neon.  I didn’t want to stop but I hadn’t eaten since the event and my stomach was throwing fits.  Breakfast 24×7 fit the bill.

At 3;30 AM in a greasy spoon in a hick town, I figured I’d be fine.  Who’d notice?  Nobody even looked at me as I entered.  Or so I thought until that tap on the shoulder.

As the Feds led me out of the place I read the name and chuckled.  I should have figured that a self-proclaimed “patriot” would turn me in.

      Why are you suddenly being tossed into spam? Anyway, I rescued you, or at least your comments (both went there). Since I usually do FF a day after it starts I sometimes hit a couple before I totally realize that it’s the FF prompt…

        Well thought I replied to this but it is gone as well!
        Not sure about the spam- maybe I hacked again – argh! And actually there is still stuff like this happening to me – but i will keep trying to truck on before I go offline completely – ;(

          I think if you do too many comments in one day WP decides that it is spam – I know people who only go on occasionally and leave dozens or hundreds of comments on a lot of blogs and often get tossed into spam.
