Microfiction Monday #25...

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.

Maybe this was the wrong location for the picnic,

there was a definite ‘country’ smell in the air.

Or maybe it was John’s beer giving him gas.

Poor John. It's probably not his fault that he has a digestive problem. :)

anthonynorth said...

A problem with many parties, I fear :-)
Enjoyed that.

Greyscale Territory said...

Yes! There is definitely an aloofness in the air! And it just could be a little too much gas! Very creative!

alessandra said...

Hahaha, this explains the long faces!

Valerie said...

Oh, THAT sort of 'country air' ... that'll teach them not to drink warm beer.

Diane said...

Love me the potty humor!!! :O)

BookPlease said...

John should lay off the beer!

hope said...

Well, at least outdoors there'd be the chance of a breeze. :)

Peggy said...

HAHAHAHAHA, I have been to reunions in the middle of a cow pasture. My my! Nice, made me LOL

Sylvia K said...

LOL! What a great way to start my day! You do got to watch out for the cow pastures! Love it! Hope your week goes well!


Ron said...


OMG....this was HILARIOUS!

I absolutely love the photo, but even more so you're creative words!

Thanks for the laugh, m'dear!

Happy Monday!


septembermom said...

Pat said...

I thought you were headed toward cowpies, but it was gas from beer--hilarious. I laughed a lot. Unique take!

Might explain why no one is smiling.

Blame the dog, John! Blame the dog!

A Lady's Life said...

John needs to learn some restraint when he is around 'ladies', I think!
LOL. Good one this week. Cheers!

cheshire wife said...

I blame the bottle. Nowhere for the gas to. A glass lets it escape!

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

Dianne said...

Quilly said...

Yeah, there's a reason they call him "john" and it's not because it's his name! LOL!
