Microfiction Monday


The lovely and talented Susan at Stony River challenges our weekend  brains on Monday with a puzzle that involves math and words.  It wounds like a ghastly endeavor except -- it isn't!  The word part is that players write a story based on an illustration she provides.  The math part is that it needs to be 140 characters or fewer. Fortunately, she has a character counter to keep us honest!  After you post the photo with your contribution to great micro literature, go to Susan's to link up, and then visit the other players. It is truly amazing what different people get out of the same darn illustration!

Here's this week's illustration:



“Keep your eyes closed! It’s a surprise!”
He trusted her to keep him out of cow pies.
“Oops!” she giggled. 
Good thing he loved her.

Cow pies when in bare feet...eww. Loved this and thanks for pointing out my mistake in my MM. Note to self...must wear glasses when typing :)

I would say it's a 'darn' good thing he loved her....hope there was a bucket nearby for washing his feet!
Have a great week. Cheers!

May their love last longer than the lingering aroma of "pie" between the toes!

Exceptionally fun take, thank you for the smiles it brings! Mine are ear-to-ear!

This was good, it seems he will take it well. A lot better than My Roy and Mary.

gospelwriter said...

Yeah, good thing, eh? He might not trust quite as readily next time, however... ;)

Jim said...

Very funny, Mom. :) Have you ever stepped on a cow pie? I think it is not a good thing to do.

A relationship built on laughter and pranks. Who could ask for more?

quilly said...

LOL! I hope it wasn't a warm, squishy cow pie. They are the worst! He'd really have to love her to not open his eyes over that.

MorningAJ said...

Not sure I'd trust him.... not with shoes as posh as that!

Thom said...

As one who has experienced (almost) bare foot in cow pie--it was in Malaysia and I was wearing flipflops--I feel for the guy. At least my wife didn't lead me into it, though she did have a good laugh at the time. Memories, memories...

Have a great week.

Peggy said...

LOL good thing he is already in love. So cute and love is in the air!

septembermom said...

She's trying, I guess. Very cute!

Susan at Stony River said...

Oh that is the CUTEST one, I love it! He does have his eyes closed -- but cows, eeww, I never gave it a thought.

That IS true love!
