Microfiction Monday #11



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.



Reading all the promises of eternal youth on the label of the bath oil,

Daphne didn’t know whether to add it to her bathwater or drink it!

So you think she's a Daphne too! My Daphne went with the decision to drink it. :-)

Valerie said...

Nice one.
I understand her dilemma....

Shrinky said...

I'd take no chances, and do both! Another lovely, witty post - thanks for making me smile.

I would definitely try applying it topically first and then if that doesn't work, add it to a glass of juice and 'down the hatch' with it! Great job with this.

G-Man said...

Peggy said...

Hmmm...I would apply it to the skin first , if that doesn't do the trick, I'd just add vodka and drink it down.
Nice.

She already looks younger. That stuff must really work fast!

lol They give youth, youth products. To make them look young.

When you are old no youth product will change those lines short of plastic surgery lol

You're right Lady's Life, once the lines appear it's too late.

Casdok said...

I know the feeling!! Excellent!

secret agent woman said...

Bath oil in the water and a nice glass of wine to drink - that's the ticket.

Linda said...

Daphne does look like she's having a hard time making a decision there!

hope said...

Does make you wonder "where" you're suppose to add this stuff. Nicely done!

Quilly said...

I have had a few cosmetics leave me with that same confusion. And as long as we're on the subject, can you explain scented toilet paper? I just don't get it.

Mother of Invention said...

Love yours! Neat idea to write about pics. I used to do Poetry Friday with a one word prompt but I love pics too.
