Ficlet Friday: Mellow Yellow

Today’s Ficlet Friday: Mellow Yellow

Things are not as rosy as they outwardly appear.

Mello Yello isn’t tasty or quick or good.
Mellow Yellow isn’t a smoked banana peel.
Mellow Yellow isn’t a euphemism for a vibrator.
Mellow Yellow isn’t the pallor of liver failure.

The Ficlet today is all about the quiet desperation, the smiling through clenched teeth and the pain of keeping it to yourself.

I want to write more – here and in the Ficlet – but recent forces of nature are conspiring against me.

Better to speak in code or, best, say nothing at all.

Truth will out. Eventually.

Until then, enjoy my first (only?) vaguely autobiographical Ficlet.
