Microfiction Monday

Susan at Stony River hosts this. Look at the illustration. Write a story. Limit it to 140 characters. Link back to her.



Mama brushed Baby’s belly, preparing him for the holiday feast.

Papa didn’t like fiber in his meals.

OR

She tried to eat right and feed the baby the right foods. But everytime that

artist showed up his sketches added on 15 lbs! Damn Picasso.

That first one made me grin. I thought a bout doing a Hansel & Gretel type story, but it was too ambitious for 140 characters. You did good.

And I like that equalling being painted to being photographed.

These are both so wonderful. The second one is just the bomb. :) Well done my friend :) I hope you continue doing this :)

Quilly - yes I HATE cameras! As if I'm not capable of putting on 15 lbs on my own! LOL!

Thom -- glad you enjoyed them, and that you're checking in. The blogosphere would be so quiet without you! I do plan to continue, but to be honest, until I check Quilly or you each morning, I sometimes don't know what day it is in terms of memes!

Oh I loved these! The first one I took me by surprise and I had to read it again to make sure I'd read it right LOL, and the second one made me burst out laughing. TOO TRUE! Damn Picasso.

:-D

Both were good, but the second one make me chuckle out loud.

Susan, I have to give credit -- your comment about dieting inspired it!

Bill, thanks for the chuckle. These are so fun to do!
