Flash Facts Friday

Trying to come up with a fast & fun weekly post for Fridays is frustrating.  There’s already Flash Fiction Friday, Flash (headlights or boobs, your choice) Friday and Friday Flashbacks.  I really don’t want to copy everyone else, so I’ve decided to tweak these options a little.

Welcome to my first Flash Facts Friday, where I will list three facts about Fridays every Friday from all throughout history, pop culture and the globe.

Drum roll please…
