Microfiction Monday

Susan, from Stony River, challenges us with yet another illustration in search of a story. Microfiction is 140 characters and that includes all punctuation and spaces. Give it a try!




Pedro’s inner fashion designer screamed that anything that involved heat, donkeys and a serape was a bad career move, but he was hungry.

Of course one has to do what one has to do when hungry!

During these hard times, we have to do what we have to do to earn a living! Nice take, I can see it evolving in my mind. :)

And when we're hungry, a job is a job.

I don't think Cantu was much of a campaigner, although he did much for the state of Baja. The post of territorial governor was an appointed position.

Pedro should have talked to Clint, he might have been able to suggest some sort of Salve for the Rash. That might have made things a little more bearable. I guess when one is hungry though they will take anything that comes along.

Hey Mom, I'm still chuckling! I am thinking there were some bad choices made here. What a combination. :)

I supposed that I was the only one to remember those Dick and Jane Readers.

It's amazing how many different names this guy has got.

He has been referred to by more than one person as a shop window dummy, but the concept of him being a fashion conscious, hungry model/actor, really tickled me.

quilly said...

Hunger has probably caused more career changes than education ever has!

It was a bit part - but I guess it paid the bills!
