Microfiction Monday #32


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.



A satisfied smirk played on Mary’s lips.



“This’ll teach him not to cheat on me” she fumed



as she rubbed his toupee up and down the washboard.



140 characters including spaces

Gledwood said...

ps while I remember, did you know Ruth the Gardener, who had a husband who was ill with a brain tumour? He died, it was v sad. Ruth is now in adult ed but I never hear from her. I was just wondering if you knew anything...

Akelamalu said...

Aw thanks SouthLakesMom, I'm flattered. :)

Glad you enjoyed the MM Gleds. I've commented on your blog about Ruth. x
