Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #46

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

Visitors to the zoo thought the Alpacas were sweet.

Then someone left the gate open

and they discovered just how tempestuous they were.

I just saw a piece about alpacas on a Sunday morning magazine show. Interesting looking creatures there are! Someone said they looked like four-footed muppets and they may be right!

Sharing a cage with visitors to the zoo probably isn't much fun.

Pat said...

Those alpaca just can't be trusted. But who can blame them for wanting their freedom?! Clever SY story and you get extra credit for using the WOTW.
