BOO! (Microfiction Monday #55)


Welcome back to Microfiction Monday, where Susan at Stony River posts a picture and you compose a 140 character story about it. Here's today's picture and my "stories":


Midnight tried to show his displeasure. "Tell me she’s not going to carry me the whole night! I’m quickly losing feeling in my hind paws!" (140 characters)
Or a more sedate take...

If only we could preserve her childhood innocence-the tooth fairy rewards a lost tooth, Santa Clause delivers toys, and good is everywhere. (139 characters)

Be sure to try this yourself either in a comment or in a post of your own. Just make sure to link back to Stony River.   Have a howling good evening everybody!

  2. Poor midnight! I was watching my kids trick-or-treating last night, and had the same thoughts as your second story ... what a lovely age to be!

  4. First one is very funny. Second is all too true, good isn't everywhere, such a shame.

  5. Susan;

    Welcome to MF, I don't think that I've been here before!
    Both your MF are so good and yet so different. Good job, I so enjoyed them!

  6. Both are nice, but the first one is great!

  7. The cats I know would have made their displeasure VERY obvious by now!

    Well done!

  8. Your first story is hilarious! And your second one is poignant--If only we could preserve childhood innocence all the way through childhood. I like them both!

  10. Awh poor midnight. Yes he would feel discomfort being carried like that! :O)

  11. Your first one made me laugh because of the contrast in their expressions! Too silly!

  13. Both of these are great, Susan, in different ways. (I loved the cat's voice in the first one! And I have three boys, only one who is still in the realm of innocence, more's the pity!) Thanks for stopping by and commenting on mine, too. Much appreciated.

    Have a great week.

  14. Oh, poor Midnight. :) Yes, if we could only continue to believe, wouldn't that be lovely?

  15. I love this! I was telling someone the other day I'm sure Halloween will soon be "outlawed". And all the fun we had as kids will be in our memories only.

  16. Those are awesome Susan :) I really love Midnight's perspective. Great take this week.

  17. Hmm. Did she end up carrying him the whole night?

  18. Sometimes it's nice to be carried. What an unappreciative cat!

  20. Susan, thanks so much for your friendship and support during my husband's job search. I think many of your ideas are interesting and I'm going to talk to hubby about them. I knew that you would come through for me!! Hugs and love to you, Kelly

    P.S. I'll send you that promised longer note soon :)

  21. The first story made me laugh because my kids carry our cats like that all the time. I think that is probably what they are thinking. LOL
