Microfiction Monday #20

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.

Ruby and Thomas set off on the long walk to church.

It was their wedding day.

There was just one thing worrying Ruby.

The smell of sweaty feet.

BWAHAHAH No odor eaters? LOL We were going along the same line with our stories. :) Excellent my friend :) Have a wonderful week ahead :)

Quilly said...

Oh yeah -- she better get used to the smell now if she's going to marry him!

A Daft Scots Lass said...

thats the least of her worries...

Deborah said...

I like it! :o)

David said...

Maybe by the time they get there, they will have a good airing. ;/ Funny!

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

Well at least Ruby is aware of one of Thomas' faults. I think if she can get past this walk, she will be OK.

Akelamalu said...

Seems the smell got to both of us this week Thom LOL

Yeah, they don't usually get any better do they Quilly?? ;)

You're not wrong there Scots Lass LOL

Thanks Deborah :)

Hopefully David :)

Sure, they'll be aired off by the Bill LOL

Valerie said...

Maybe the fresh air will get rid of the smell before the wedding...grins.

Shrinky said...

Aw, the course of true love, eh? (Giggle)

CrystalChick said...

Maybe she can light some extra candles and incense once inside!

Great short story to go with that neat picture.

anthonynorth said...

Priyanka Bhowmick said...

oh lol.. a deo might work :D

Ellie said...

And she's only just realised he's got smelly feet?! Oh, dear. Brilliant take on the picture.

Have a lovely week x

you have been nipping the fish oil? ha ha ha

smiles, bee

Granny Sue said...

Yeahhhhh...that would be a concern. It might keep them distracted and not stressing over the rest of the ceremony though.

Gledwood said...

O dear me.

Maybe it was exotic French cheese for the reception.

I remember encountering one particular sloppy soft cheese in France ~ it was like a near-liquid white horse-shit!

Akelamalu said...

I think that's what Ruby is hoping Valerie ;)

Yes it can be tough Shrinky ;)

I think she'll just make him wash 'em Crystalchick LOL

Yes it could Anthony LOL

Cheers Daryl x

It may do Priyanka

I don't think he'd ever taken his shoes off before Ellie

Only a little Bee ;)

I think the smell of sweaty feet is the only thing Ruby can think of at the moment Granny Sue LOL

That cheese sounds absolutely revolting Gleds and I adore cheese. :(

A Lady's Life said...

Guess the groom is out of his comfort range gulp gulp lol

Ohh--I hope that 'sweaty feet' don't ruin their wedding plans! Hopefully they don't smell as bad as 'sweaty underarms'! LOL
Have a great week. Cheers!

Pat said...

Oh, no worries, Ruby. The dirt will wear off the odor during the long walk. I enjoyed this.

nitebyrd said...

Someone should warn her that smelly feet will be the least of her worries after getting married!

Diane said...

Those are some legitimate jitters.... ;O)

Peggy said...

Once they get to church, she won't smell anything !
I just love, Love stories!

septembermom said...

That would worry me too :) LOL.

Spiky Zora Jones said...

akelamalu: Ho honey. Oooh, Rubie should had taken her shoes off like Thomas. :)

that way her feet wouldn't sweat.

great pic...I like that one.
later honey.

Akelamalu said...

I think you're right Lady's Life

Sweaty underarms are far worse I think sylviamorice!

You're right the dirt will overshadow the smell Pat :)

Oh definitely Nitebyrd LOL

I think so too Diane ;)

Maybe the smell will have gone by the time they get to church eh Peggy?

Me too SeptemberMom ;)

That's a good idea Spiky :)

Julia Smith said...

Once he puts his shoes on, he'll be fine. But he doesn't want to wear them out beforehand. A practical guy!

Hey, Akelamalu - I dreamt about you and your hubby last night. It was a bit scary, as you dropped by for a visit and I live with a hoarder. You were actually in my apartment amongst the piles of stuff! LOL!

Linda said...

But if you're not wearing any shoes then your feet don't get as sweaty! I'd be more worried about sweaty palms myself but perhaps there are no nerves here!

Akelamalu said...

Good thinking Julia. Re the dream - I hope we didn't scare you? LOL

That's what worried Ruby - his feet smelled even though he wasn't wearing shoes Linda!

Cute words for the picture.
I would write.
I need to get some new shoes. I wear a size 12 and these are a 10.
I can't squeeze my feet into them anymore. Maybe I can cut the toe part off and wear them.
