Microfiction Monday #40

Susan at Stony River hosts this fun theme each Monday, so do pop over and read the others who have signed Mr. Linky. The rules are thus:

Every Monday Susan will post a picture for the subject of your story. Microfiction means the shortest of short stories. Think Aesop's fables, comic strips, or even jokes: complete stories that can be told in under a minute. For this game, the limit is a tweetable 140 characters or fewer, including spaces and punctuation.

Here's today's picture and my contribution.

Only slightly late, Kate was disappointed her blind date hadn’t waited,

Had she arrived earlier she would have seen the police arresting him.

140 characters including punctuation and spaces

Had a couple of blind dates I wish the police had arrested before I got there.

Well it's certainly a good excuse :-)
Nice one.

Excellent!! I don't think I've ever had a blind date and I sure wouldn't wait for one!! Love this prompt - have just read another on a different blog.

Valerie said...

Lucky girl! Never did trust 'blind dates'

indicaspecies said...

Well, not being punctual turned out to her advantage fortunately.

Doctor FTSE said...

Poor Kate or lucky Kate? Maybe the police arrested him for loitering . . .

Peggy said...

I have never had a blind date either, but would hate not to know what happened when I showed up a little late. Good tale, made me think>

Diane said...

Perfect! Love the humor on this one. :O)

Ron said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh dear god, you CRACK me up!


Gee, I wonder what he was arrested for?!!?

Spiky Zora Jones said...

me thinks it was a good thing she was late. heheh. you know everyone probably wonders why he arrest?

here's my theory...he's the blind date robber. Uses girls (dates) to go into restaurants nice and easy and robs them...escaping with a hostage...his date.

heheh. later honey. xx
