Flash Fiction Contest - 159 Words Max!

Jessica Ferguson, writer for Southern Writers magazine, is hosting a flash fiction contest on her blog. The winner will receive one free copy of the magazine and publication on her blog.
Contest Rules:

1.)    Add yourself as a follower of her blog here..
2.)    Your first line should be the Groucho Marx quote:

"I’ve had a wonderful time, but this wasn’t it."

3.)    Write a story in 159 words or less. No profanity because she doesn’t like it. No erotica because you need to keep that good time to yourself. Any other genre is acceptable — romance, western, scifi, fantasy, horror, etc.
4.)    Put your name and email address below your story then post your story in the comment section of this post on HER blog.
5.)    There must be a minimum of ten (10) entries or the contest is cancelled.
6.)    Deadline: Midnight, October 31st.

All entries will be judged by selected members of the Bayou Writers Group. Sorry, only one winner will be chosen. The winning entry will be announced and posted on her blog with gushy, flattering comments from the judges by November 4th (or shortly thereafter). The winner will also receive the November issue (print copy) of Southern Writers Magazine.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email her at jessy31writer (at) aol (dot) com.
