Microfiction Monday

Welcome to Microfiction Monday, where 140 characters paints a picture...or photo. Tell Susan if you play.

And she's landed safely, with little ones beaming. (No Thom, not that kind of beaming...Scotty wasn't involved, although I'd bet she wished he had been). Give her a while to catch her breath and she'll be commenting again in no time!


This week's photo:

"Oh how the mighty have fallen",
cried the monk second in command,
looking at his prone comrade.

"Fallen?
You pushed him!" they chanted.



And one more, for Charlie

"What happened?" whispered a shaken monk.

"Sister Margaret."
"Said God told her to neuter Father
and she couldn’t abort the mission."

Both are excellent!!! Esp. #2. What are those things? Bookends?

Susan at Stony River said...

I love the first one best - never expected the push! LOL

Yes, they're bookends, they go everywhere with me.

Charlie said...

Yes, I like both of them, but Map is correct: The second one, while belonging to the fantasy genre, is devilishly clever.

Suz said...

Peggy said...

Oh no; If I was a nun, I could have been Sister Matgaret.
Loved both of them. You're so good at this.

Now I liked both, but I chuckled at the Second. The Sacrifices we have to make. Good thing she wasn't Abraham.
