Succinctly Yours: whack


"Don't worry, pretty little redheaded girl. If anyone tries to hurt you, I'll whack him with my fist," promised Charlie Brown Bear.

Succinctly Yours
the Monday meme at Grandma's Goulash

The rules of Succinctly Yours are simple. Every weekend, Grandma posts a photo as a prompt. Participants are invited to write a short story of 140 words or less, or a short-short story of no more than 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.
There is also a word of the week, chosen by Grandma's daughter Calico before she saw the picture. This week's word is "whack" and I have used it in my 131 characters, including spaces and punctuation.

I want a bear for my protector! :-)

Nothing wacky about this cute short story, Kay … the big bear does look protective of that little read headed girl. :)

I can tell by looking that Charlie Bear Brown is nice guy. Your story proves that, thank you.

Ah, a faithful protector. We all need them.

Robyn Greenhouse said...

now I'm feeling sort of bad that I didn't see the bear as a nice protector!

Despite the fact
that I eschew the whack
I am loving
that little brown bear

I enjoyed looking at your pictures of antelopes and the lovely pictures of the Danube. I’d love to go back to Venice – how long will you stay there?

That might hurt Charlie's fist more than it would hurt Dolly's attacker. Sweet one, Kay. Mine always seem to be cynical.

Hi Kay,
Cute story!
Thanks for the visit; my birthday/Christmas present was an Olympus camera that can really do macro! I like it!

Blessings!

I wouldn't mess with Charlie Brown Bear - he's cuddly but big and strong, too.

Charlie Bear sounds like her white knight in shining armor. Or maybe a brown fuzzy knight. :) How sweet!
