Microfiction Monday


Susan, at Stony River, is kind enough to host this meme.  I hope she is able to continue it once she immigrates to the U.S!  It has become my favorite because it's short and pithy and the illustrations are so inspirational!

The idea is to use an illustration she provides and write a story consisting of 140 characters or fewer. That 140 includes all punctuation and spacing.

Here is this week's inspiration, followed by my story.


You’ve never heard of the Westminster Goat Show? Back in ’63 I won best in show! Now I’m just a stay at home nanny.  Oh, fame is bleating, fleeting.
