Let's leaf reality for a while, it's Microfiction Monday time!


Walking to the fishing hole with her dad was the best part, before her life jacket had to be worn, before a worm had to be put on the hook.

And my friend Suzanne's take on it for this week:
one leaf, two leaf, three leaf, four ...
whoa, there's a lot of 'em


Posted by Kay for Microfiction Monday hosted by the very busy Susan at Stony River. Thanks, Susan!

Terrific, Kay, as I knew it would be! Glad you've joined the fun! Enjoy your evening!

I like it Kay.

gospelwriter said...

It would be the best part - not every kid likes the nitty-gritty of fishing. And for sure, there are a lot of leaves...

Susan Fobes said...

I remember wanting to be with dad even if it meant worms on a hook-LOL! Great !

Kay..I love to visit your blog, but it is very difficult to leave a comment with the embedded blogger comment setting. I can't use Firefox and IE is a drain on my old computer. If you change the settings in the comments to pop-up instead of embedded, it will be easier for people like me....Michelle

Delightful capture of a child's thoughts! Beautiful micro!

gaelikaa said...

Both good ones....

Kay said...

Oh this is wonderful, Kay! I agree! Sticking that worm on the hook would turn me off to fishing right away.

anthonynorth said...

Ah, the things the child must put up with :-)

EG Wow said...

Well written, Kay! I like the realism!

Margaret said...

A heart-warming tale.

Madeleine said...

So sweet. Really got into the mind of the little girl :O)

izzy said...

Yup, worms and life jackets! good one
Thanks!

Ebie said...

I love your interpretation Kay...I see a little lake towards the right.

Ah, I remember those fishing trips too. Life jackets were too cumbersome and hot and those wriggly, jiggly worms were yucky. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Terrific! What a sweet little girl. I hope she has a great day with her dad.

Leslie said...

I think this is the best one you've written so far.

jabblog said...

I empathise with the fishing tale (from your childhood, maybe??)
As for the counting - well, it's difficult when you're little ;-)

Mama Badger said...

Both your and Suzanne's were great! If she's anything like my kids, she'll take so long to walk to the fishing hole that her Dad will just give the thought of fishing@

septembermom said...

This is very lovely and sweet.

Pat said...

This is so sweet--being with daddy is the most important thing. Thanks for the chuckle!

Michael G-G said...

"Leaf reality?" You're very punny.

Loved the tone of this one, the child loving the part before the restrictions set in.

Have a great week.

Diane said...

Soon, she'll outgrow all of that. :O)

Nessa said...

Very nice. The walk would be the best part for me, too.

hope said...

Amen to the worm part...yuck!

I like the destination you choose.

Strummed Words said...

Too cold for the water? I'd prefer the walk too.

faith said...

I'm in agreement! :)

So I guess it was dad who took the picture of his little girl...hope she had fun even in the life jacket and with a worm on her hook!
Have a great week. Cheers!
