Microfiction Monday


Susan, our transatlantic-attempting traveler, is trying to escape Stony River at the moment. Still, she sends her felicitations and her challenge for us to write something witty, pithy, or otherwise two-syllabled entertaining for Microfiction Monday. She gives us the illustration, we provide the wit. The catch is that the caption must be 140 characters or fewer. It's fun, and it's no-fat. So join us!

This week's illustration:

This week's story:

“Mine, all mine!” Tova crowed maniacally, forgetting that she lived alone with three cats who would not begrudge her one bite of the bounty.

But I can understand why she said it :-)
Nicely done.

That's what happens when you live alone. You start talking to the pets.
Very funny and clever.
Have a happy Monday MF

Never trust a cat.

BTW your comment prompted me have a second crack at the competition, using 'finger food' instead of 'hors d'oeuvre'.

Didn't help.

I can't say that, my two cats like what I eat, I guess I should switch to Cat Food and save a bit. Nice one

Jingle said...

wow,
that's amazing one.
Happy Tuesday!

mine is up.

I understand talking to the pets. I even talk to myself, but I don't listen. Thanks for a fun take on this pic.

I've had some blog woes and am a day late. Far more than a dollar short. But that story won't fit into microfiction!

Captured the photo perfectly!! Love the "crowing maniacally," and the non-begrudging cats... Super stuff.

She does look a bit deranged -- living alone with three cats will do that to a person.
