Microfiction Monday


Write a story in 140 characters, then let Susan know you came to play.






This week's illustration.
Emotional baggage behind her, 
Pat faced the future.  

Yet as a train steamed into the station, she felt uneasy.
 
Had she turned the iron off?

Seems to me that she forgot to pack a bag LOL Very well done. Have a good week ahead :)

The only kind of baggage that is best left behind is the emotional kind. Good write.

Nice MM! Well done!

Peggy said...

I have done that, well gone back to check if I turned it off!
Very nice my friend, I loved it!

HA!...
I've done that as well!
Great Job Hope...

I like it, Hope! Especially the part about maybe the iron was not shut off. As if she ever intends to use it again.
That is unless she runs away like little kids who want to be home for supper. :)

Pat said...

Ha Ha...My name is Pat and thoughts like that usually go through my head when I'm leaving for a long trip! Only usually it's, "Did I turn the water off?"

Good one...I laughed.

Definitely a bit of baggage left there. Liked the irony.

the replicant said...

Great entry. I love the optimism, and the tinge of mundane doubt.

Deborah said...

Hehe very good!

Ellie said...

I loved the way you ended it with the irrational thought about the iron - the thing she should be least worried about. Genius.

Have a great week x

Diane said...

That'll happen at just the wrong moment! Bummer :O)

Now this is good Hope, Pat ready to get away from it all wondering if she left the Iron plugged in. I sometimes wonder if I left something turned on or plugged in myself.

Susannah said...

Oh, I love this! The large hopes and the small details, what a wonderful contrast. :-)

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

LOL That's something I'd worry about, so I can totally relate!

septembermom said...

Hate that nagging feeling about something turned on. Good microfiction today :)

I do that with my stove. I don't iron. I have to remember to do that with my laundry tub. Have flooded the laundry room more than once.
Good story, though.
Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving kind words. I'm always partial to kind words. ;~)

Love it! Great sense of hesitation we all share.

Ms.Daisy said...

Have a great week.

Akelamalu said...

Haha we both went for the forgetful theme. Good one.

Susan Fobes said...

I liked this, especially your funny take at the end!

Titus said...

Me! That's me!

Genius emotional baggage line.

lizziviggi said...

Oh no! The suspense is killing me!

Susan at Stony River said...

For me it's always the coffeepot LOL

What I love best is how we ALWAYS seem to have these niggly details biting at the edges of life's BIG moments -- just like this, and then it seems so ridiculous. This is great!
