Microfiction Monday

Susan, at Stony River, very kindly hosts this meme. It's short, sometimes sweet, and usually quite provocative. You look at the photo or illustration she provides and then write a story in 140 characters or fewer (including punctuation and spaces). It is a challenge to make something succinct and interesting. Most of us go for funny or what we think is funny. Join us!

This week's challenge:

God: I gave you specific instructions.

Noah: I got creative.

God: It works better my way.

Noah:  Can I keep the figurehead?

God: NO!

Noah: ARGHH!

SouthLakesMom said...

Thank you, all! You're right, Larry, arguing with God could be very dicey. But Noah thought it was worth a try -- people had been laughing at him for a hundred years!

Now this is funny, Noah arguing with God on the design. One of the best yet.

Susan's MfM has taken off.

Okay, you win the prize today for most creative!

Maybe God was just ticked off because it appears the "Jolly Roger" was actually once nickname for the Devil.
