Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #8

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

My dear Emily, please accept my apologies for the kink in my innards. 

Here the aroma of this flower should alleviate the obnoxious smell.


I'm back off holiday and will be posting about our travels just as soon as I have downloaded the 369 photographs we took, and deciphered the notes I made.


Quilly said...

Rose scented farts. Wonderful! ;)

MorningAJ said...

And she's thinking: "Thank goodness he hasn't noticed the one that I let off."


Beach Bum said...

Great story, can't wait for the pictures and travel stories.

Valerie said...

Oh such a gentleman! It's good to have you back, I've missed these little snippets of genius.

BRAVISSIMO, my friend! What an insane tribute to the word "kink"! Never again will I think of it in the way that I use to. LOL! Thank you for this whacky "Stop and Smell (the Roses)" moment!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Hehehe...she does look rather put out, now that I think of it. Very funny, and a great way to begin my Monday morning.

snowelf said...

Clever indeed!! Poor poor Emily. :)

welcome back :) I'm excited to see the pics. You always have such fun holidays!!


Sharon J said...

Lovely to have you and your microfiction back. If I'd been given a rose every time my ex dropped one, the house would have been bursting at the seams with them.

can't wait to hear if you had a good time!

Using the word "kink" could prove dangerous and/or scary, I think only you could make it hilarious! LOL

clean and crazy said...

Akelamalu said...

Better than the usual smell eh Quilly? LOL

LOL you could be right there AJ!

Thankts Beach. I'm hoping to have the first instalment up on Wednesday. :)

Aw how nice of you Valerie. It's good to be back. :)

I'm so pleased you enjoyed it Sparkle :)

She does indeed look put out Lisa and no wonder! LOL

LOL You must have suffered Sharon!

Anyes said...

That's a funny one :-)

Daryl said...

Well done, and welcome home!

Anonymous said...

I will never think of the word kink in the same again! Well done.

cheshire wife said...

She does not seem sure. I think that he should have offered her a bunch of flowers.

Kay L. Davies said...

Several people seem to have used the word "smell" this week, but at least you've offered a solution. LOL
I know how you feel about having to organize the holiday photos. My husband took 950 one day in the Swiss Alps, through the window of a train, and left them to me to edit.

It's a curse isn't it Clean&Crazy? :(

Cheers Anyes :)

Thanks on both counts Daryl x

A bunch may have disguised the smell a little better Cheshire Wife LOL

I think the picture spoke the same language to quite a few people this week Kay LOL

I think you're right Susan LOL

My pleasure Casdok x

I liked the phrase too Jabblog ;)

Linda said...

I have a feeling that even a dozen roses will not restore the romance to this evening. Love where you took this one!

My SY: Shouldn't Have Asked

Akelamalu said...

You're right Grandma it will take more than a dozen roses. :)
