Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers





A know a guy called Stuart. He calls himself Styler because his hero is Steven Tyler, but whereas the Aerosmith play stadiums, he shrieks and strums in the street. He’s tried to get the look right; hairy, baggy shirts, mile long scarves and skinny jeans.

I was walking down a scruffy backstreet. It was blustery. Rubbish bowled along the pavement. Stuart – sorry, Styler came walking towards me leaning into the wind, hand on head. “Hi Sty”.  I went to shake his hand. He took his hand from his head, and suddenly his hair took off and flew down the street!  I turned to see where it was heading (pardon the pun!) and it saw darting back towards us with four tiny legs poking out of it! Just behind, an old fellow was tottering along. “Tinkerbelle, heel girl”

I don’t know what was funnier.; Styler’s expression, his never-before-seen shiny bald head, the hapless dog owner, or the animated wig. Styler suddenly took off in pursuit of his crowning glory. I haven’t seen him since. I wonder if he got it back!

  1. It can inspire a new style, without cruelty to animals :)

  2. Very funny. I like the image that inspired it, too. My first love reportedly traveled Rome for a while as a busker after we parted ways. ~sigh~ I wish I'd been along for that extended Italian stay.

    1. That would have been wonderful! Rome is one of my favourite places. La bella Roma!

  3. Hahahaha! Sty is actually a bald guy that wears a hairy wig! Sounds like the little dog is wearing it now. Hope Styler gets his wig back! Great story Keith!

  5. Hilarious stuff. A feel a bit sorry for him, but but he shouldn't be so vain!

    1. I guess he didn't want to be a bald Steven Tyler!

  9. Great visuals, both with his Steven Tyler impression, and with his hair running down the street on a new head! :-) I can always come here and be entertained, Keith!
