Microfiction Monday

The lovely, talented, and recently beleaguered by American school rules, Susan at Stony River, has once again provided us with a challenge. Using 140 tweetable characters or fewer, provide a story to go with the illustration she posts. This is a worthy endeavor, so join us!



Sweeney Todd* contemplated the best use of his time and energy. Revenge is a dish best served cold... 

*For those of you unfamiliar with the reference, click here.

Hi Mom ~~ I like that last line, revenge is a dish best served cold...
I take it that is something that Sweeny learned in barber college.

Bravissimo! BravissiMO! In my book, what you've put into play for this week's MM takes home first prize! May I repeat? BRAVISSIMO!

P.S. I remember not too long ago, I ran into an old friend at the video store, who was looking a smitch like a frayed knot as she cashed in Johnny Depp's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street for something Disney. Poor woman. She had her grandchildren over for the day and, thinking it was a kids' movie, she'd rented Sweeney to watch with her favourite brood of youngsters! Can you imagine?! LOL!(?)
