Microfiction Monday #9


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.



In the midst of the storm Ethel was surprised to see the mermaids,




who had come to the surface to see who had just chucked up over the side.

What's the punchline from that old joke? "I don't remember eating them!"

Great tale this week!

Poor Ethel, oh dear. I hope they're only coming to lend sympathy, and not rub her nose in it LOL

One too many? Oh Thom I know that feeling. ;(

Ick! Reminds me of the kindergartners the day one boy had a mild seizure and we called his mom to take him home. When we returned to the classroom the only thing they wanted to know was, "Did he throw up?"

Janel said...

No wonder Ethel has a knife. I would imagine those mermaids can be a little cranky after getting puked on!

Bankerchick said...
