Facebook Flash Fiction

The other day, in the pub, some friends of mine said that it'd be lovely to just think of a girl's name and then magically find a girl with that name to date. I told them to do it. The result is Facebook Flash Fiction:

1) Invent the name of a girl.
2) See if that girl really exists on Facebook.
3) Send that girl a message provoking some kind of response that isn't: 'who the hell are you?' or 'get away from me you freak'. An easy answer was FFF - write a 100 word story about that girl based only on her name and picture, then suggest to her that she write one about you, if she so feels like it, as though it were a type of chain game or something...
4) Hope that the girl in question doesn't Google 'Facebook Flash Fiction' (which you've put in the title) and discover this site, blowing the whole thing and getting you arrested for some kind of bizarre stalking offence...

Wish me luck, I'll update you on my progress with Sophia _____ (like I'd make it even worse for myself!).

I can't imagine that going well.

I was actually thinking last night that we could have a super short fiction thing; I picked up a collection of those kinds of stories, and the medium seems suited to my patience.
