Microfiction Monday


Susan at Stony River hosts this brief meme. It's a lot of fun and I really appreciate her doing it week after week. Take the illustration she provides, and give it a story. Simple, right?  Well, the string attached is that the story must be 140 characters or less. That 140 includes all spaces and punctuation. It doesn't have to be funny, or insightful or even really coherent, just brief!  (Coherent is good though).

Here's this week's illustration, followed by my story.



(Singing) "We ha-ve ta-ils. Nyah, nyah, na, nyah, nyah!"

"So what? I have GREAT hair!"

She does have great hair! I'd love to be able to swim like a mermaid - but I think having a fishy tail might be too high a price.

Great story.

There's always something with those mermaids. They'll do anything to start a fight. :)

Not only does she have great hair, but she also gets to wear gorgeous clothes. The girl wins this contest hands down. Very cute!

Females can be so nasty to each other ,can't they?
I loved your comment about your daughter when she was little.

They're very flat chested, too.

Never mind. I didn't say that ....

Love this one! Yes, they have tails, but long hair must count for something, right? And for heaven's sake--put some clothes on!!!!

Hehe, I read this and my first thought was "girls are the same whether they have legs or tails..."
