Microfiction Monday #42

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, though somehow I have managed to pick up a completely different picture prompt to everyone else.   Don't ask me how, I have no idea!

Hey Godzilla, don’t look now but here comes Rodan for your date.

Damn he’s early, I haven’t had time to brush my teeth, does my breath smell?

140 characters including spaces and punctuation

I use to watch those old Godzilla movies all the time when I was a kid. They were great fun and I thought it was cool how Tokyo use to get flatten.

Great story, I wonder if the mechanical monster would tell Godzilla the true about its breath?

Valerie said...

Nice one. I'm just trying to think of all the awful things it could smell of...grins.

Hi Akelamalu

Akelamalu said...

My kids used to watch the Godzilla films but they were too scary for me Beach Bum! ;)

I know it's scary isn't it Valerie? LOL

I did get your email Crystal Jigsaw and replied straight away but it was a different email address to the one you've given here. Anyway I've replied again to the address you've now given. Thankyou and I'm thrilled to have won! :)

I think I must have been in a dream when I picked up the prompt pic last week Dominic. Glad you enjoyed it anyway. ;)

LOL what am I like G-man? Glad you enjoyed it.

Hi Linda and welcome to MM. I'm on my way over to yours right now. :)

'Wrong' picture or not, that's too funny! Even monsters have their insecurities I guess!

I Always hated it when my date was early. Didn't like it much when they were late either.
Good take on the pic.
I think this picture was a great MF sroryline. You just proved it.

I pretty much missed out on the Godzilla stuff, so I'm looking at this as a contribution to my education. lol Thanks for the fun MM.

My MM: Escape

secret agent woman said...

Have you watched an old Godzilla movie lately? The special effects are now insanely primitive!

Travis Cody said...

I remember the old Godzilla movies. They were a riot.

A Lady's Life said...

Akelamalu - I just saw in TV and new thing being done in knee surgery in Canada.
They take cartilege from higher up and plug it into the affected areas and the people are not even asleep when they do this operation and it seems to work.
Why replace the whole knee if you could do it this way. And it's done with computer help. If this could work for you maybe you should do this instead of knee replacement. Thats not good.

I think it was done at Queens hospital they said.

Flowerpot said...

yes way too scary for me too!

Akelamalu said...

LOL Tony sorry I missed your comment you must have slipped under the net whilst I was replying.

Well we learn something new every day don't we Grandma's Goulash? ;)

They were great at the time though weren't they SAW?

Indeed they were Trav :)

Too late for me Lady's LIfe I had my knee replaced 4 years ago!

Hehe what you scared of Flowerpot?
