Microfiction Monday

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






This week's photo:
Sure, Pudgy Paul mused between bites. 
Girls stare longingly at Sinewy Sid.

But his strength will wane. 

The muscle between my ears won’t.

Bookkeepers will always count.

I love it and I laughed a lot! Brains win over brawn for many a guy looking for a gal. I love the last sentence: "Bookkeepers will always count." LOL

Peggy said...

Paul is in need of a wake up call.
He has to find a girl that loves to have a meaningful conversation, not love eye candy.
There out there , trust me Paul!
Loved this one Hope. Made me laugh.

Being a 'brainy' one...yes, I know they're out there! But WHERE??? Of course, being age 25 would help--or WOULD it?

You did a GOOD take on the photo, Hope!!!

EG Wow said...

This was good for a laugh! It's not easy being a nerd when you're young! :)

G-Man said...

Ha!
There's always a bean counter in the bunch!
Great Job.....G

Nerd thinking isn't going to get Paul anywhere with the gals...they're going for Sid every time! Good take on this week's MM, Hope!

Nerds rule!

sylviamorice said...

LOL. This was good...bookkeepers and accountants will be around long after everyone else...sort-of like cockroaches, I guess...
Have a great week. Cheers!

Susan at Stony River said...

Yeah I'd pick the driver of a Buick over a Datsun B210 any day -- learned that one the hard way! LOL

I laughed at Fay's Too's comment -- excellent!

It does look like a Bean Counter's Picnic.

Suz said...

I'll take brains too

Susan Fobes said...

I loved this one! (I do have my doubts about Pudgy Paul though...)

Petula said...

Nerds rule and your microfiction is cool! LOL... I like how the wording really fits the time period. Very nice.

Fickle Cattle said...

Hahaha. Nerds win in the end I think.

I am Fickle Cattle.
