Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #47



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.

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







Preparing to jump off the of top of the boat, on the snorkeling trip, Alison thought..

"I hope I bounce if I hit the deck before the water!"

Pat said...

Ouch! I'd persuade the snorkeling guide to have the snorkelers jump off the first deck. Great use of the WOTW. I confess...the photo is of me on my second ever snorkeling trip.

Ron said...

Brilliant finish!

I don't know HOW you do it, but your cleverness astounds me!

You can create the perfect visual with so few words!

Brava!

Happy Monday, m'dear!

Nicely done. I love to snorkel, but not sure I want to do any bouncing. LOL

Beach Bum said...

Great job! I did in fact bounce once on a boat after slipping on loose scuba fin. Trying to regain my dignity I decided just to stay down and roll off into the water.

Grandma's Goulash said...

That's a disconcerting thought, but a wonderful microfiction!

G-Man said...

A different bounce comes to mind here Ake..:P:P

Shrinky said...

Hahahaha, this photo is similar to one I have of my girls in that kit - and I'm sure they were thinking along similar lines to what your wrote, at the time, too!

Akelamalu said...

I'd prefer the snorkeling to bouncing too Lisa!

Better to stay down Beach LOL

Thanks Grandma :)

I bet that's a great photo Shrinky!
