Susan, of Stony River, has once again left us a challenge for a MicroFiction Monday. Basic gist- tell the story in 140 characters or less. Then visit the others and see what they wrote. Here's today's picture:
Tears welled in his eyes. He had hoped that they would be better off without him. But now he could see that leaving had been a mistake.
It's well worth a moment to visit the other writers and see how many different takes there are on just one photo with a 140 character caption!
And the I'd Rather Be:
I'd rather be at work than having to ask the people in the next hotel room to PLEASE, keep it down. My kids are trying to sleep.
We stayed in a hotel next to the Columbus Zoo this weekend. It had completely gone over my head that other families would want to stay close to the zoo, too. Other families who let their kids stay up until 11:30 and make lots of noise. When I politely asked them to turn the volume down on the TV and maybe keep the kids from screaming, I was informed that she was TRYING to put them to bed, and thanks for making it that much easier. To which I replied, I didn't realize the Disney Channel loud enough to be heard in the next room and having a pizza delivered at 10:30 were ways to help children sleep. Man, I've been doing it all wrong these past two years. I heard the couple in the room on the other side laugh out loud at that one. I did not feel one bit bad that the boys woke up at 7:am the next morning. Normally, I'd try to keep them quiet. Nope. There was no one on the other side of us, so I let them bounce on bed and giggle in glee. No, I'm not a nice person.
Have a good week, all.
