Grandma at Grandma's Goulash provides a picture and a word prompt for this Microfiction Meme and the rules are use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words.


Want more challenge? Use the word of the week in your story. This part is optional.


This week's word is PROCRASTINATEand here's the picture and my offering using both the picture and the word in 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.


With what he was carrying he couldn’t afford to procrastinate he had to get through security as soon as possible and get out of the airport.

Otherwise.... oh dear, I'm thinking all sorts of horrible things that he might be carrying in that case

Shrinky said...

Eeeeek - I'm calling security, NOW!!

I once made the mistake of saying 'yes' when I was asked whether anyone had asked me to take something through customs for them. It was a box of chocolates for crying out loud - but it was carefully examined and X-rayed before being handed back to me.

Now THAT was procrastination - took forever to get through to airside.

You could have used a photo of Toonman for Procrastinate .. GAH .. the man has it down to a science!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

He's up to no good, that's for sure. Good one!

Pat said...

This sounds like it would be a great line by Jack Bauer in Twenty-Four. Too bad it ended...maybe you can start it up again!

Susan Fobes said...

Okay, now just what was he carrying? Very interesting...

Calico Crazy said...

I don't know what he's carrying, but for safety's sake I'm getting as far away from him as quickly as possible - unless it's money, or chocolate or... ~ Calico Contemplations

Akelamalu said...

I agree Anthony :)

Indeed Casdok :)

LOL Daryl

I think you're right Lisa!

There's a thought Pat!

You can decide Susan ;)

Very wise of you Calico Crazy

Porky said...

The beauty's the not knowing, the imagining. Good stuff!

Gledwood said...

I hope he had lots of yummy heroin on him. I'd have looked after that suicase for him, just as long as he got it through customs for me!

Anyway I'm doing a course for Longterm Drug Users tomorrow that's sposed to be really really good so I'm really looking forward to it.

Everyone who teaches the course cleaned up VIA that course, so the results speak for themselves.

Anyes said...

Hmm, I'd love to see what's in that bag ;-)

Mama Zen said...

This one is perfect!

Grandma's Goulash said...

Well, at least he was leaving the airport. But I would like to know what's in the bag.

Pooch said...

And, just what is he carrying? We want to know.

Beach Bum said...

Reminds me of the Cuban cigars I bought while in Grand Cayman.

SparkleFarkle said...

Rogue that he is, maybe he'll be the one to follow the Yellow Brick Road! I(I hear it's the fast track. LOL!)

Akelamalu said...

Maybe not Maggie, you don't know what he's hiding. :0

You could be right storytreasury!

I can understand you not wanting to leave your island Cloudia :)

So glad you enjoyed it Porky :)

Hope the course goes well for you Gleds

So would customs Anyes LOL

Aw thanks Mama Zen :)

Yes it would have been much worse had he been getting on a plane Grandma!

Could be Trav ;)

That's true Judy!

That's up to your imagination Pooch :)

You smuggled Beach??? :0 LOL

Akelamalu said...

Could be Sparkle Farkle LOL

Julia Smith said...

LOL, Travis!

I'm thinking he works for MI-5. It's nasty, but it's for the good of the country.

Spiky Zora Jones said...

akelamalu: yeah...the Italian restaurant sandwich delivery guy had to deliver the pilot's lucky sandwich to him before he took off...hehehe. And he was double parked. hehehe

Linda said...

Hmm, so all sorts of reasons as to why he had to get through security so fast are now running through my head. Knowing you, most of them are of the nefarious type!
