Microfiction Monday #41


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 spaces and punctuation.
Here's today's picture and my contribution.




Sophie, my darling, as much as I’d like to stay I really must go back with Edward,


he’s feeling a total gooseberry over there all on his own.
