Microfiction Monday # 3

Susan at Stony River hosts this fun theme each Monday, so do pop over and read the others who have signed Mr. Linky. The rules are thus:

Every Monday Susan will post a picture for the subject of your story. 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, including punctuation and spaces.

Here's today's picture and my contribution.

Alice‘s preserves were popular but held a secret, which no-one would guess.

She bought them, then transferred the contents to her own jars.

Should I lose the green beans to get the raspberries?

Let's Hope Alice doesnt' get caught.

secret agent woman said...

I have to admire Alice.

hope said...

I think I've met that woman. :)

Sadly if I decide to can, I still do it the old fashion way. Have a good week!

Julia Smith said...

Actually, Akelamalu, no one would ever believe I had cooked anything. I shamelessly heat up other people's cooking and call it dinner. But I gratefully acknowledge the efforts of the initial cooks.
