Microfiction Monday #30

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.

Margueritta hoped the bulls her new beau had brought as a gift for her father

would divert Dad’s attention from his appalling fashion sense.

140 characters including spaces


MorningAJ said...

I actually quite like the "cat hat". Could do with one today. It's perishing cold here! :)

Valerie said...

Im with MorningAJ - it is flippin' freezing where we live. I looked at the picture and tried to imagine what you would come up with, to no avail. Your sense of humour is terrific.

kaykuala said...

The old man fell for it? He might just! Great humour.

hope said...

Ah, you and I were on the same fashion page this week. Not sure I'd have brought him home to Dad wearing that outfit either. :)

Have a good week!

Akelamalu said...

The cat hat would come in handy here too AJ it's only 2 degrees F!

So glad you enjoyed it Valerie. It's cold here too hon. x

Yep I think he fell for it Kaykuala

Haha yes we both went for the fashion angle today Hope :)

Madeleine said...

Yes those hoodies of yesteryear LOL! :O)

secret agent woman said...

I think it's going to take more than cattle.

Yes, it's pretty appalling all right.

Yes, it's pretty appalling all right.


Peggy said...

The fashion statement is very confusing here. I see her point!

Dianne said...

I wonder if that is the first mullet ;)
good one lady

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

smiles, bee

Finding Pam said...

You know it takes a woman to shop for her man. I am sure she will turn him into a fashion icon in no time at all.


Sylvia K said...

Well, it may take more "bull" for her dad to get past this guys fashion sense!! Terrific one for the day as always! Hope you have a great week!


SparkleFarkle said...

Best of luck to Margueritta, indeed! Groom wannabes wearing bad toupees can be so off-putting to future fathers-in law. It turns daughters' dads into not wannabes!

Visiting your blog was so much fun--> thank you!


Susan Fobes said...

I was wondering about his choice in garb as well. LOL!

Jinksy said...

I've heard of cat among the pigeons - but cat among the bulls? No way! Who was he trying to impress? LOL

I've so missed your story telling :) Well done :)

Ron said...

I absolutely LOVE Sylvia K's comment, so allow me to ditto it...

"Well, it may take more "bull" for her dad to get past this guys fashion sense!!"


FABULOUS one, m'dear! As usual. I don't know HOW you come up with these, but you're bril!

Have a wonderful day!


Quilly said...

Maybe Margueritta should take a closer look at how her beau is stroking her dad and spend a bit more time contemplating his fashion sense? Hmmm ...?

SouthLakesMom said...

Ah yes . . . looking back on those eye-wateringly bad choices teens made back then!
