Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #60

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

 Zogg began to wonder if he had made a mistake when making the transition from his normal Martian appearance to this one, to fit in on Earth.

Shades of Ford Prefect there. (HHGG - apologies if you don't know who I mean.)

Poor Zogg. Perhaps he can fit castors. At least he'll be able to get around a bit more. :)

Enjoyed that.
I see he went straight for chairman.

Valerie said...

You have a wonderful imagination,Pearl. I thought of 'chairman' but was beaten to it...grins.

Ron said...


Clever, clever, clever you are!

Well, at least he had a GREAT view!

Have a wonderful Monday, m'dear!


Akelamalu said...

Sorry AJ I have no idea who you mean. Castors are a great idea! LOL

He did indeed Anthony

Thanks Valerie :)

Oh yes, I hadn't thought of that Dumdad!

*smile* Daryl

I think Zogg thought not CJ ;)

Oh yes, certainly a great view Ron ;)

It's so hard for a normal Martian to decide what form to take when coming to Earth, isn't it? Perhaps he should have consulted the expert Martians.
Good one, Akelamalu. Made me smile.

better to be a reclining seat than a rug Zogg

Grandma's Goulash said...

What a great imagination. A transition to a LazyBoy might have been more comfortable. :D

Akelamalu said...

He definitely should have taken advice Kay LOL

Definitely Sandi!

Thanks Grandma :)
