Microfiction Monday #28

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.

Scowling at the photographer.

Pedro wished he’d get on with it.

He knew it was a mistake agreeing to model knitwear for the dratted catalogue.


Grandpa said...

Poor that his friend waiting for him in the background?

Ellie said...

LOL. That is some knitwear!

Ellen Brickley said...

Brilliant take on the picture! Great entry.

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Yikes - a photoshoot in the desert! Pedro must really need the money. LOL Good job!

Rinkly Rimes said...

In all that heat too! He's suffering for someone elses' art!

Linda said...

Poor Pedro! I hope they compensate him well for his time and frustration!

kaykuala said...

Pedro can sacrifice this once. He still looks good.

Valerie said...

I hope Pedro can tolerate the heat in that outfit.

Dumdad said...

Poor ole Pedro - but I bet he took the money.

MorningAJ said...

A model's life can be so hard!

Akelamalu said...

I think it is Grandpa :)

Nice isn't it Ellie? ;)

Thanks Ellen :)

He's broke Lisa!

He needs the money Rinkly Rimes ;)

He's being well paid Linda

I think he looks good too Kaykuala ;)

He's used to the heat I think Valerie

I love how you can say so much in so few words. Now I am going to ponder Pedroe's fate in modeling.

Cad said...

Hehehe! My knitting needles are clacking! LOL :)

Ron said...

OMG...I'm sweating and itching as I think of poor Pedro - HA!

FAB Microfiction, m'dear!

Clever, original, and simply brilliant!

Pat said...

Maybe he was standing in front of a backdrop so at least he wasn't in the hot sun! Good one....he really does look like he's posing for a picture!

Sylvia K said...

Fantastic!! I can feel the itch myself right now! Fun one for the day! Hope your week is off to a good start! Enjoy!

Catalogue modeling, it's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it.
Good laugh for the day.

SouthLakesMom said...

I swear, I did not read yours before I wrote mine -- we must be two minds with similar thoughts! We even both chose Pedro. This is kind of scary.

libithina said...

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...
