Microfiction Monday


Susan, at Stony River, hosts this increasingly popular meme. Susan gives us an illustration to work from, and we have a week to come up with a story in a tweetable 140 characters or fewer. (Not that you have to tweet it - that's just the inspiration for the number).  It's fun to see how people have different perspectives on the same photo.

So, without further ado, here is the illustration:


And here is my story:

With these voluptuous muses, it was no 
wonder Groucho, Chico and Harpo had 
trouble concentrating on their music…or anything else in life.

Mondays are so much better for me because of MM.

Sounds like they boys are getting the wrong kinds of ideas from their muses!

Thom said...

OMG this is just too funny. I so love it and you can just picture those three having trouble. Well done my friend :) Happy MM :)

Susan at Stony River said...

So THAT's who they are! Yep, those are definitely men's muses...
ROFL

Grandma said...

Yes, they certainly could be distracting for that trio. Good story.

Those ladies could distract a saintly man, so the lecherous Marx Bros would stand no chance!

I can see Groucho being himself with the Muses.

Only can a Microfiction Monday picture bring to mind Mother Nature, murder and the Marx Brothers. :)

Nicely done!

Excellent...very creative tie to the Marx Brothers...and perhaps the muses provided some inspiration for Groucho's cigar.

Love this! So, you're a NOVA gal, too? I teach high school in your neck o' the woods. When do you think the pollen will stop polluting our lungs?

You can see why Harpo was quiet. I'm still on the lyrical theme. My micro-fiction

Enjoyed this very much: Marx brothers and the Muses are quite a combo.
