Microfiction Monday

With all the holiday rushing around, what could be easier than coming up with a 140 character story? Especially when Susan provides the picture. Make sure you let her know that you played. Here's this week's mental launchpad.

Not willing to jump through hoops for the holidays,
Rudolph the Red ran away from the circus his family became at Christmas.

I think we all feel the need to run away for a bit of quiet time some times. Great work!

Peggy said...

Great Microfiction story Hope,
We all do feel a kinship here. Running away would be so easy, yet of course im possible. Except we can "Calgon" it away!
Have a great Monday Hope!

LOL, he's in such a hurry he didn't even sit down! I know how that feels!

I love the holiday spin everybody's putting on this poor fellow. Jeez, and I only gave him hemorrhoids ROFL!

Peace on earth, goodwill toward men, women, children, dysfunctional families, all of us, eh? It takes work, doesn't it, to walk through the holiday season. I'm with you. My family circus likes to gather at my house on Christmas Eve. Okie, dokey, then, let the cleaning and cooking and wrapping begin!

Rudolph The Red, Heh, Good one Hope, Oh I wish I was on that horse with him, I'll be glad when things get back to normal.

Titus said...

Stunning! That is a truly inspired 140 characters. Funny, and yet so ... you know what I mean!

Barbara, so far I haven't reached that point. But you never know. :)

Peggy, thanks for the "Calgon" idea. May need to put it in motion in a week or so. ;)

Susan, this has become a hysterical way to start the week and I thank you! Next thing you know, you'll be giving us a photo, the first sentence and we'll all have to add on to the story.

enchantedoak: most of the time it is fun. And yet, I think we all have a relative we'd like to donate to a worthy cause. ;)

Thom,'s suppose to be fiction. ;) Can't have Santa putting my name on the wrong list.

Granny Sue, isn't that the only way you could ever escape the family circus?

Bill, isn't it funny how something we actually enjoy seems like so much work at times? Hope you have a calm holiday.

Titus, as a girl person...oh, I know all too well. ;)

SouthLakesMom: why, thank you!

And it looks as though he ran away in proper circus fashion! But I do know how he feels. I am not wanting to be free of Christmas, just stress, period.
