Microfiction Monday


It's Microfiction Monday over at stony river. We are invited to write a story based on a select picture in 140 characters or less (including punctuation and spacing).

Don’t choke me trying to get the binoculars! Pull that branch away. Look at her with my man. I should shake a few acorns on her fancy head.


It's such a sweet picture, but I thought it would be fun thinking that a Laverne & Shirley kind of duo were spying on the couple. Enjoy your Monday!

Oh, my. LOL. I think she like to throw something bigger than an acorn! Loved it.

Love the Laverne and Shirley influence ... It works!

T Rex Mom said...

Love you take on it - shake the acorns, that's great! I hope you have a nice week with as few bus stop politics as possible.

Oh-oh--I think he's in trouble now!!! Instead of throwing an acorn, why not toss the binoculars at her fancy head! LOL
Have a great week. Cheers!

Vicky said...

Laverne and Shirley... oh now that is a flashback and a muse that works. What a great image to work from. I love when you do these and get so excited to see what you come up with :)

Pat said...

Ooh...love gone awry...the fury of a woman scorned. I love your unique take on this week's picture! Well done!

Gerri said...

Love it, love it, love it. I needed a laugh today and you sure provided one.

Jim said...

I'm smiling too, S.M. I love the way you can get Shirley and Laverne involved. Their sit-com was great, wasn't it!

A humorous perspective take of a woman scorned.

I'm not aware of the sit-com!

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

I never would have thought of a Spying Microfiction. I can see Laverne and Shirley watching. Well as long it isn't Lenny or Squiggy they are watching. If it was Laverne it'd be more than acorns being tossed. Must be Shirley being cheated on. Nice Microfiction

Prayer Girl said...

Loved this different perspective. Very refreshing.

Hahah Kelly! Love it. You're so good at these things.

I just adore coming to your blog for some creative inspiration every few days. I'm going to try to make one up as well so I can feel accomplished today.....


Cecil was ashamed for missing church today to work extra hours in the fields. Yet Velma held his hand proudly and tightly. Together they walked home in love and comfort.

Quilly said...

A ha! No wonder she is trying to cover her face with her hat! She's out with someone else's man! I should have known!

Great take on the pic -- and very original!

Susan Fobes said...

Ah, a woman scorned... Good one Kelly. How are you?

That's hilarious. I was turning my screen this way and that to try to find the people in the picture that inspired this. Then I read the rest of your note :)
