Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #14

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

Jack loved being in a tribute band, apart from travelling to gigs, in bad weather,

when he was just one more faceless person in another car.

Bless him. As a regular commuter I can relate to this one.

Good 140!

Hi! It's so great to be back! I missed reading your blog.

Oh well, commute during a bad weather is a huge hassle for me.

Wonderful post, as always. Will look forward for more 140's!:-)

Beach Bum said...

I'm a regular commuter as well and I can relate. Driving to and from work is pain.

Great writing.

Valerie said...

It's called travelling incognito! Probably the best way in some situations....grins.

Sharon J said...

If Jack's anything like the members of tribute bands I've known, he'll be in a beaten up old van that'll only just make it to the venue and back :)

Thanks AJ

Yeah, you never know who you might see SD&BS! ;)

Glad you liked it Lea, welcome back.

I don't commute any more thank goodness Beach. Glad you liked it hon.

Pat said...

Great use of "tribute!" I guess tribute bands must pay their dues, so to speak.

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Daryl x

Yes it does Bee, he needs to be careful.

Only when it suits though, eh Linda? ;)

Cheers Ron x

I guess they do Pat :)

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Love your use of the word "tribute" here, as a adjective rather than a noun. Nice!

Mama Zen said...

Nicely done, Ake!

Helen said...

Oh will be taking note of other drivers and their car contents from now on!

Good mf. I could really picture him in his car - so maybe he wasn't as anonymous as he thought!

My SY: Don't Let The Rain Come Down"

Akelamalu said...

Ah but he didn't want to be anonymous Grandma, so he'd be pleased. ;)

Anonymous said...

Well it is a long way to the top, if you wanna rock n roll.
But atleast it wasn't raining men!

Akelamalu said...

That's true cambronwriter!
