"Look at this! Soap to keep us afloat when we take our baths in the ocean."

Posted for Microfiction Monday, the writers' meme presented every week by Susan at Stony River. Here's how it works. On Sunday evening, or thereabouts, Susan posts a prompt in the form of a photo or a drawing, whereupon we, the intrepid writers, compose a story or poem inspired by the prompt, using only 140 characters including spaces and punctuation, 140 characters being the maximum length of a "tweet"! This is particularly helpful to people who have a terrible habit of overwriting, definitely one of my shortcomings, I must admit.
