Microfiction Monday




It's Microfiction Monday again! That's when Susan at Stony River gives us a photo and a command: THOU SHALT NOT USE MORE THAN 140 CHARACTERS TO WRITE A STORY. The command bears a further stipulation that the 140 includes all spaces and punctuation. It is a fun meme to try because one has to be BRIEF. Most people go with funny. Try it! Copy the photo, and write your story. Then link back to Susan. Visit other players and be nice.




Brother Gregory initiated a whole new way of worship with his rebellious laid-back attitude.  The others struggled with the sin of envy.

This made me chuckle. The early monk's version of the LazyBoy Recliner. I wish I had thought of that! ;)
