Succinctly Yours - a Microfiction Meme #6

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

Zarko, we invade earth tomorrow.

Of course the earthlings won’t be suspicious,

our scientists have ensured that we‘re identical to them.

They sound as good as our scientists. Nice one.

MorningAJ said...

On the other hand - if they turn up in the right place no-one will notice!

Beach Bum said...

I know a few people that would make those aliens look boring.

Valerie said...

Identical, indeed! Even on a bad day I don't look like that.

Shrinky said...

Heeeeeeeee, and thus it came back to the drawing board at their first attempt at world domination..!

Porky said...

This made me laugh. The standard is especially high this week, and yours is a good example of the quality.

Grandpa said...

Quite scary, really. And I thought I bumped into a couple of them on the street just the other day...hmmmm...

Grandma's Goulash said...

The photo elicited an alien invasion for me as well, but I couldn't seem to put it into 140 characters. You've done a terrific job with far less.

Lynette Killam said...

Look forward to seeing your trip pics...:)
