Ahoy there everybody-it's my favorite time of the week-Microfiction Monday. Susan over at Stony River challenges us to write a story based on pictures she posts, but there is a catch-they can only be 140 characters or less (including spacing and punctuation.) This week we have an "ocean themed" picture, so since the subject matter was a little silly, I tried to match it with a little humor of my own. (Now those of you who come by here often know that I usually leave the humorous posts up to other members, but I just couldn't come up with anything serious!) Here is this week's picture and my first post
Fin was taking it hard but Seamus was ecstatic. "It’s a sign Fin! We're gonna live, and we're gonna smell awfully sweet while we wait!" (137 characters)
And this week, since we are leaning more on the funny side of things, I thought I would try my hand at a limerick (I haven't done one of these in quite a while, so bear with me...)
Two sailors alone on the shore,
Were stranded so sailors no more
They had hope,
When up washed some soap,
But a meal of suds is quite poor!
What did you think-did I get you to chuckle? I can't wait to see what the rest of you wrote, and if you are new here, why not join us? Just be sure to link up to the Stony River website.
