Flash Fiction Flashback: How the 576th Annual Pollen Festival Blossomed My Budding Career by Samantha L. Strong Emma Munro
In April 2017, English computer scientist Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee was awarded the A.M Turning Award for inventing the World Wide Web. Ten colorful sarcophagi and numerous figurines were discovered in a 3,500-year-old tomb near the Valley of the Kings, and Sodimejo, an Indonesian man who claimed to have been born in 1870, which would have made him 146 years old, died.
It was also the month that Flash Fiction Online published the flamboyantly droll, How the 576th Annual Pollen Festival Blossomed My Budding Career by Samantha L. Strong. If you need a day-long smile, this is the story for you.
