Microfiction Monday & I'd rather be...

They didn't boo, hiss or throw rotten tomatoes last week, so I'm trying Microfiction Monday with Susan over at Stony River, again. Hop on over to see her and she'll tell you how it works.

Here's this weeks picture:


Carl really did hope that breakfast in bed would cheer his wife up.  He couldn't help the subtle hint about her mood as of late, though.

or the alternative:

Zorg's "Happy Meal" idea had worked well with the children.  Stealing the minds of adult humans was proving to be harder than he thought.

I'd rather be... Monday.  Come on, I'm sure work is better than something, right?  Where?  Tell us?

 And this morning's "I'd rather be...." Monday thought:

I'd rather be at work than picking up little o and reminding him NOT to eat the cat food one more time.  It was a rather long weekend for both the cats and me.

Cat food munching all weekend long?

I love your captions for the photo, especially the first one. It wouldn't be a bad idea to have a crab on hand when we are just not in the mood to say ONE WORD to anybody in our house. It would be like a warning when they saw the crab sitting there. ;)

Your breakfast caption is "bedder" than all the rest. In my book, your Microfiction Monday passage takes home first prize!

I like both your offerings for the pic!

I'm retired and don't miss work one little bit. :)

I'd rather be at work than waiting in a sweltering house for the a/c repair people to come, cursing them for not giving me a better time than "sometime on Monday". Poor John.

Now I enjoyed your Zorg and his Happy Meal. Though your Cat Food one made me think of my Lads.

I love how different these all are. Nicely done!

SouthLakesMom said...

LOVE the not-so-subtle hint!

I'd rather be at work than . . . doing laundry at home.

Loved It Mama Badger...
I think that there was other motives involved..hehehehe

Pat said...

Both of these captions made me laugh--double the fun! The Zorg one really cracked me up.

I'd rather be not dealing with a baby sitter crisis on my vacation this Monday. Argh!

I liked both of these very much - well done!
I can't play 'I'd rather be . . . ' 'cos I'm just where I'd like to be (how dull . . . )
