Microfiction Monday

Finally got my act back together to play.  Susan at Stony River is the brilliance behind this meme. She gives us a photo or illustration, and we respond the following week with 140 characters (including all spaces and punctuation) that tell a story.

This week's illustration:


My Story:

“But it’s cold and wet,” he whined to his mom.

“Superheroes don’t skip rainy days, Aquaman,” she said from under her umbrella.

Splash.

Poor Aquaman, I guess to His Mother he was her Son and not the Superhero.

Hope the Week ahead is good for you.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, listen to mom if you want to be a REAL super hero! Great one for the day! Have a good week!

Peggy said...

I love this, a great example of being a child and their wonderful imaginations!
Have a great week Mom!

Sonia said...

LOL Funny. Very original take!

Kay L. Davies said...

I agree with Bill. To a mother, no child of hers is a superhero. On the other hand, I agree with Sylvia, too. If you want to be a superhero to your mother ...LOL

You've shown the cowardly side of Aquaman, SLM. Guess Mom popped him one and pushed him in. Good for her!
