Microfiction Monday #29

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 spa

Here's today's picture and my contribution.

The head teacher thought that the deer sporting the team scarf and hat was encouraging.

However, personally, he would not be seen dead in it.

140 characters


MorningAJ said...

I'm not sure the deer is too happy about it either!
Great Microfiction.

Dumdad said...

Oh deer! Nice one, Akela.

Grandpa said...

Neither would I, Akelamalu!

Daryl said...

Poor deer ..

Peggy said...

...and the principal won't even wear the outfit. Poor deer is right.
Very nice Akela!

anthonynorth said...

Clever irony in that ;-)

Valerie said...

Neither would the deer if he had his way. A very clever microfiction.

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

the poor things looks a bit light in the antlers to me!

smiles, bee

Ron said...

OMG, that last line was absolutely BRILLIANT!

"However, personally, he would not be seen dead in it."


You are sooooo clever, m'dear!

Have a great Monday!


Dominic de Mattos said...

I guess the buck has to stop somewhere!

Nice word play!


Sylvia K said...

Ah, those teachers! What do they know about "cool"!! Fun one for the day!


Akelamalu said...

I'm sure you're right AJ!

Hehe, thanks Dumdad

Me neither Grandpa!

Indeed Daryl

Quite Peggy!

Yes it is ironic Anthony

The poor deer had no say in it though Valerie :(

Ah yes it does Bee

Cheers Ron, glad you got the punchline. :)

And your play on words too Dominic :)

Teachers don't appreciate their student's idea of fun do they Sylvia? ;)

the guy in the silk taffeta dress said...

Cute but he looks a little stiff in it.

snowelf said...

At least the deer is a good sport in that hat.
Very cute!!


Jinksy said...

I don't think he had a choice!

Dianne said...

I always take a breath before I read your closing lines
it's like anticipating something delicious
you never disappoint

Diane said...

Too bad the deer did not have the same choice.... :O)

Susan Fobes said...

Yea team! LOL!

septembermom said...

That last deadpan line is a great finisher :)

secret agent woman said...

Seems like such an undignified way to treat the poor dead deer.

Spiky Zora Jones said...
