Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #33

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 DILIGENT here's the picture and my offering using the picture and word of the week  in 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.

Heads down, eyes focused, the trio were diligent in their search.

Surely an impossible task - to find a lost earring in a snow covered field.

Know the feeling very well, while in the army someone in the brigade lost a small but vital piece of communication equipment while out in the field.

Hundreds of us walked the eastern Colorado praire in a long line looking for the thing.

Oh good luck with that one. I remember losing my car keys a few years ago on a moorland walk. We did look very much like this photo as we went back to find them.

(Fortunately someone had picked then up and placed them in the centre of a large stone or we might still be there today!)

Now where's my glasses?

Shrinky said...

Oooh, did I tell you my diamond turned up in the hoover bag? Whey-hey!!

Valerie said...

Very good. Unexpected, but good. I once lost a bunch of keys (car, house) in the local wildlife park. Dog and I walked back along the route taken and my lovely dog found them hidden in the long grass.

I found a $5 bill once on police call after two waves of allegedly diligent rodneys had already passed over it!

SparkleFarkle said...

This is exactly why I never accept small diamonds as gifts. (LOL!)

CrystalChick said...

Good one!

Being in the jewelry biz, I have had times when I lost one in a pair maybe packing or unpacking too quickly at a show. Actually, just a couple weekends ago that happened. Luckily, my friend found the lost one and it's back with it's mate again. :)
