Microfiction Monday

The lovely and exhausted Susan still kindly allows us to travel via her site to places prompted by her microfiction Monday meme. It's simple: use the illustration that Susan provides and write a story of 140 characters or fewer. No cheating -- that 140 includes all spaces and characters and punctuation!

Here is this week's illustration, followed by my microfiction.



Leaning to the left or the right just didn’t matter anymore. It was the eternal zip code that one should have gotten right.

Those DARN zip codes! In Canada we have to deal with Postal Codes (our own little version of hell).
Great job this week. Cheers!

Gee, we just can't escape being "coded" even into eternity! Interesting concept!

It's pretty chilly here today. Makes me almost wish for that really hot zip.

Very witty take on this one.

EG Wow said...

Hehe! It never occurred to me that Heaven or Hell might have Zip codes. :)

Thank you for the comment on my MFM. I actually do believe that our bodies die but oh the joys for our souls!!! Have a great week! :O)

Akelamalu said...

Ah yes there will come a time when we will all have the same zip code for sure!

Good one.

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

Yep, we want to make sure we are forwarded to the right address when we are through here. Very Nice one this week.

HA! Hope I've kept that zip code in a safe place!

Pat said...

Ooh...Good one! "The eternal zip code"...perfect. I was thinking along the same lines.

Suz said...

or what !! undeliverable!?!?!

SouthLakesMom said...

To all who wonder -- I had been a Christian for many years before I realized that EVERYONE will receive eternal life, but believers will spend it in heaven, and people who don't believe will spend eternity in . . . the other zip code.

So that's what was behind that remark!

Dave King said...

Superb! - and I only needed 8 characters!

Robin said...

Funny but yet profound, I like it.

Thank you for your kind words about the fire, it's been devastating for our tiny country.

PS Nu? How do you like them???
