Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #5

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 QUAINT here's the picture and my offering using both the picture and the word in 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.



Daisy quaintly looked over her shoulder at the huge bull.


 
There was just one thing on her mind.


 
“Buttercup, will he think my bum looks big?”

If the bull has any sense he will lie if Daisy should ask that awful question males of any species always dread.

My wife asked me that question once and I ran from the room and out the house.
