Microfiction Monday #59


My take on this week's prompt:

A no-pets policy? But my wife loves her cattle so much! What? You don't mean the herd? You mean my leopard-skin hoodie? But, sire, please!

My friend Suzanne says:
"Is this the way to Pamplona?"

or

"Honestly when people told me he was full of bull
this isn't exactly what I thought. I've definitely had better first dates."


Posted for the Microfiction Monday meme,
hosted by Susan at Stony River. Thanks, Susan!

Every week, Susan posts a picture and we are invited to write a story or poem about it. We can only use 140 characters (the maximum in a 'tweet') including punctuation and spaces. So that we don't have to count on our fingers (and miss one), she told us where to find a character-counter, right here!

So that's where hoodies originated? Very clever.

Kay said...

Well, you know...
Some guys are pretty vain about their clothes, don't you know.

Lily Hydrangea said...

very funny Kay - you have a wonderful imagination!

Jim said...

I'd go down the road rather than dump my hoodie! Let's hope they have room for the cows.

I've been to Pamplona. We went on and stayed in Burgos. That was on our Paris to Normandy to Gilbralter to Granada drive.

Jim said...

Thank you another time yet, Kay, for your critique. I made a minor change. The word 'way' could be taken the wrong way so it by the wayside.

that's very funny, oh those first awkward first dates, haha.

Michael G-G said...

The two of you are bustin' some funny microfiction there. Enjoyed all three of them.

Have a great week.

BECKY said...

Ha! Loved them all, too! Very clever!

the replicant said...

"Is this the way to Pamplona," has to be my favorite of the three.

Greyscale Territory said...

Very clever dialogue spins! And the hoodie is definitely out there!

Mr Puddy said...

Kay, I like you and Lindy very very much but Leopard- skin is not really nice for me to look at. This post is Rate R for the cat like me. .. VERY VERY SCARY !!!!

Jo said...

Kay, your post is SO clever; your take on the prompt so very original. I learn so much from you, dear friend, with your play on words and using a photo to awaken ideas. Brilliant. Blessings and (((hugs))) Jo PS When do you go on your travels?

Dominic de Mattos said...

Loved the "leopard-skin hoodie"!

... and the subtlety of Pamplona!

5thsister said...

They are all wonderful! I can see why it was a hard decision. But you can't go wrong with a 3 for the price of 1 deal!

SouthLakesMom said...

I think the fashion designer part of his tribe is on vacation!

Very funny, all of them!

hope said...

And to think when I first saw this illustration, I was buffaloed. [Insert groan here].

I love how many takes we've come up with...yours is yet another gem!

Diane said...

Strict rules there!!! Great take :O)

kaykuala said...

A leopard-head hoodie can create serious objections. Gosh, it is not even the live leopard yet! Very good take!

Cezar and Léia said...

hehehe You are very creative Kay, congratulations!
Léia :)

Strummed Words said...

Those oxen look too tame for Pamplona!

jabblog said...

Madeleine said...

Jinksy said...

quilly said...

Leopard skin hoodie! I just about fell out of my chair laughing! Wonderful.

I went with the Pamplona theme but I am really beginning to wish I had spent more time contemplating that leopard skin.

EG Wow said...

Wonderful take on this weeks picture, Kay!

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Hey! I'm digging that leopard skin hoodie myself! Sandals are pretty stylish too~

Ebie said...

Hi Kay! Nice and funny! You made me smile on the no pets policy!

Pat said...

"Leopard-skin hoodie" - I love it. I laughed at both of these! Well done!

sm said...

very creative

g-man said...

Kay...?
You just can't do the 140 thing can you?
hehehehe

Kay L. Davies said...

@ g-man
I have copied and pasted my leopard-skin hoodie submission into the character counter several times, just in case, and you are wrong. It is 138 characters, including spaces and punctuation.
