Microfiction Monday


Susan, at Stony River, hosts this delightful meme. Using an illustration Susan provides, tell a story in 140 characters or fewer. The 140 includes all punctuation and spaces. Publish on your blog and then link to Susan's. Be kind, and visit your fellow players.  DO NOT have coffee in your mouth when you visit them. You may end up spraying all over your computer laughing. (By the way, Beatrix Potter has a LOT to answer for. I can attest that bunnies and mice are not cute, fuzzy, lovable creatures. They're pests!  And that sweet ivy she uses in her illustrations? It's only nice in someone else's yard...far away from mine!)

This week's illustration:


When I said, “my kingdom for a rabbit”, I was looking for chocolate. It wasn’t an offer to trade!

"My kingdom for a rabbit!" Love it! My kid's will love hearing me proclaim that; after all a horse is so old hat.

Have a great week!

LOL! I would rather have a chocolate bunny too -- especially if I was trading for it.

My favourite Beatrix page of all, features a man walking with a rifle and only one line of text: "This is a man with a gun." Because the book is about a very naughty bunny so you KNOW what happens next LOL!!

I guess we should be more careful for what we ask for, we may not get what we want. This was fun.

Thom said...

OMG this is just to funny. I love it. Be careful what you wish for I suppose :) Well done. Have a wonderful week ahead :)
