Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #56

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

Fred and Kermit Frog had always had a competitive relationship, 

so Freddie put on his best incandescent suit for the latest family reunion.

Ah, a flash frog there. Nice one :-)

Jim said...

Nice going here today. I'll root for the'creative Freddie' and his friendly creativ author. :)

We have Mrs. Jim's family reunion on October 6 and just now she is making plans with our London daughter and three-year-old granddaughter (KP) for them to come here for that.

Daughter has to be back to work Oct 8 but KP will stay with us for a week. Then Mimi Mrs. Jim will go back and stay a week with her.

Me? I will stay home here with our dogs, cat, and the frogs.

Dianne said...

I know Kermit but have not had the pleasure of meeting Fred before this :)

Ron said...

Oh, that is too funny!

Wishing you an incandescent Monday, m'dear!

Oh yes, Freddie will be the best-dressed one at the family reunion.
I also read the post below — congratulations to your son the soon-to-be-solicitor. Fabulous exam results.

You and I were thinking along the same lines today re: "incandescent!" I enjoyed the competitiveness between Fred and Kermit. Kudos for using the wotw!

I saw these in Costa Rica - our guide called them blue jean frogs.

INCANDESCENT is such a lovely word! It rolls around the tongue delightfully when spoken! I'm off drinking in the Pubs of Halifax tonight and will slip it into the conversation at some point!Check my blog tomorrow it might be included in an audio recording I'm doing there!!!!

Akelamalu said...

I'm happy to make you smile Misty x

It is a nice word. I'll be interested to find out how you slip it into your conversation Tony LOL

I would love a pet rainbow froggie like that... I did used to have a pet tropical water frog, that doesn't come out of the fishtank (so no platforms or plinths are necessary, he just swims with the fishes, or more to the point, hangs around the bottom like a miniature diver to shoot up to the top every half hour or so, breathe quickly and vanish back to the bottom of the pool...)
