MicroFiction Monday

Susan at StonyRiver has decided to host us again.  Though, why I can't figure.  We're an unruly bunch and some of us forget to wipe our feet...  Take a glimpse at my 140, and then visit the others who are up for the challenge.


Lance had gotten into the outfit and up to the door.  Now all he had to figure out was how to get the ring out of his pocket.  


And to all who "missed" last week.  It was an homage to John Steinbeck's "Travels with Charlie" in which Steinbeck drove cross country with his poodle, Charlie, and left his wife, Elaine, back home.


And I'd rather be at work today than standing in line at the market listening to a woman "educate" us all on how she is feeding her children a vegan diet and how we're killing America's youth by not doing the same.  Bite me.  Oh, wait.  You can't.  I'm made of meat.  Pthppppt.


Have a great Monday, all.

I'd rather be working than fighting with Turbo about video games--the kid is awefully opinionated about the stupid things.

Oh, what a knight AND what a night this promises to be, if Lance's sweetiepie accepts! Let's hope Lance can get to that pocket. LOL!

Very much fun this go 'round!

Always the ring problem. why didn't we, way back when, go with the tattoo option! Gone for predicament today. My 140 is here

Michael G-G said...

I was wondering how to get the ring into the story! You done good.

Have a great vegan-free week.

I'd rather be working than running a 5K and only passing the first water station. :-)

A lot like my spin on things for this picture. A knight in shining armor!

SouthLakesMom said...

Armor has pockets! COOL!

Thom said...

Make me wonder if he really wants to get married. :) Maybe he wants her to get touchy feely with him ya think? LOL Great take on the photo my friend. Oh and that woman trying to educate can kiss my big white fat ass!!! I love your bite me remark. Have a wonderful Monday :)

I think he's going to have difficulty there :-)
Nice one.

hope said...

How did he get a ring in his pocket to begin with? :0

Nicely done.

I love your micro!! Awesome.
And I would tell the vegan lady to get over herself too. or maybe I would have grabbed a slim jim right there in the check out and started eating it in front of her - or offering some to her kid!

Mrsbear said...

Very clever microFiction.

And as someone also guilty of killing America's youth - double pffft.

Poor Lance, Maybe he should have brought one of his Buds along to help.

sylviamorice said...

I thought maybe the ring was what he was already holding in his hands! (Guess his intended would have to have HUGE paws though!) Good one.

Poor fellow. I have a suggestion but it might 'tickle' him if she followed through.

I have worked. I have worked.

I wonder what the woman feeding her child a vegan diet is going to do when her kid develops ADD and other fun illnesses and disorders from the severe nutrient deficiencies (to say nothing of all the soy).

And while I'm a day late, I'd rather be at work than the designated photographer at a child's first birthday party. It was fun, but jeeeeeeze...

Pat said...

He might have to ask his beloved to reach into his pocket to get it. Uh oh.

But what a romantic way to ask for her hand in marriage! Love it.

blueviolet said...

Sorry you were accidentally exposed to the vegan speech. It's cool she's vegan, but not so cool that she was condemning everyone who isn't.

Your Micro-fiction was very sweet! Nice one!
