Microfiction Monday - 20100712

Welcome to Microfiction Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.


I know i told that man to buy RED hair dye, this is obviously Chestnut.

"HARRY!  YOU GOT THE WRONG HAIR DYE!"

  "What?"

"YOU GOT THE WRONG DYE!"

"You want me to die?!?"

SIGH

About Microfiction Monday

Microfiction means the shortest of short stories. Think Aesop's fables, comic strips, or even jokes: complete stories that can be told in under a minute. For this game, the limit is a tweetable 140 characters or fewer.

Hate counting letters and spaces? Try Design 215's character counter, which will count for you as you type. Microsoft Word will count for you too, of course, as part of its word count feature under the 'Review' tab.
Photos will be from my own archives; illustrations are from Dover Publications' free clipart sample newsletter.

And finally, why 140? A whole new fiction market has arisen via mobile phone texting and Twitter, who limits 'tweets' to 140 characters including spaces and punctuation. It's fast, it's fiction, it's fun.

That was pretty creative. I think I'll pass. I tried thinking about it, but the brain is drawing a blank today.

Sounds like Harry should have picked up hearing aide batteries too. :)

This really made me laugh because it sounds like conversations my husband and I have! Great take on this week's pic.

Oh boy -- that sounds like us in my house! LOL

I laughed out loud; I had a husband you couldn't send out for ANYTHING and he could (perfectly logically) bring you the opposite of what you wanted.

Working with senior citizens, I have lots of moments like that. So far Hubby hasn't strayed over that line. :)

Thank you all for the kind feedback. I confess that this is a conversation that can happen all to easily in my home too. 8)
