Microfiction Monday #34

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.

Hi, you new to these parts?

Yeah, I just dropped in on my way home from the south coast. I’m a racing pigeon.

How exciting, what’s your racing name?

Shytalk, what’s yours?

140 characters including punctuation and spaces

Great story. Some think I'm crazy but I actually like pigeons. Sitting with my daughter in the park one time and I noticed the pigeons were looking at all the people like we do animals in a zoo.

Always Write said...

Ha something pigeons aren't by nature - shy

I'm new and over at Always Write

Valerie said...

The amount of thieving (food) our pigeons do I'm surprised it wasn't named Shylock.

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

I grew up around my uncle's racing pigeons.

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Nice way to see the pic. I like the pigeon's name; great word choice. Nice MFM.

Peggy said...

Racing birds, I love it!

Finding Pam said...

What a great story! You say so much in so few words. Now that is talent.

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

He doesn't seem that shy at all. Can he afford to stop and take a rest if he is racing. Wishing you a wonderful 2011.

Ron said...

You are soooooooooooo clever!!!!


LOVE IT!!!!!!

I laughed so hard at Valerie's comment...

"The amount of thieving (food) our pigeons do I'm surprised it wasn't named Shylock."

HA! I agree, the pigeons here are the same!

Great one as usual, m'dear!

Happy Monday....X

Cheryl said...

Awwww, what a sweet MM.

Dianne said...

shytalk is an excellent handle as a truck driver would say :)

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

hahaha, shytalk, that's funny. Good one!

Quilly said...

I immediately thought "Shylock", and I see I wasn't the first. The pigeons I am used to aren't the shy type!

G-Man said...

I Loved it!
Hoping you have a very Happy New Year....Galen

Linda said...

Very clever as always, m'dear!
