Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #65

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

Mum should've read the invitation properly.

 It said You are invited to play Volleyball on Halloween 

not You are invited to a Halloween Ball.

Volleyball would be interesting in those outfits - specially the one with the eye patch!

Lea said...

Funny and smart! :)

Secret Agent Woman said...

t least it wasn't dodgeball - they'd be handicapped in those costumes.

Akelamalu said...

Yep the eye patch would definitely be a hinderance AJ

Thanks Lea

Dodgeball could be tricky indeed SAW

Oops, overdressed. Very funny a common mistake.

A trifle handicapped for volleyball, but, hey, just right for a party. You can see which way Mum's mind was working.

I hope they forgive their mum.
Poor kids and poor lady.

Mum was in a hurry, no doubt, when she skimmed that invitation. What Mum isn't in a hurry?! Very clever microfiction story.
