Microfiction Monday is slightly soapy today




"Look at this! Soap to keep us afloat when we take our baths in the ocean."
"Yeah, and we won't have to scrub ourselves with sand any more."
140 characters pre-cisely, if I do say so myself.


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.

To see what other writers made of the above picture, or if it prompted them to post another picture in return (which sometime does happen) please click

They might still want to scrub with sand - exfoliating, you know ;-)

I've never used sand to scrub my face. Glad I'm not stuck on an Island somewhere!
Good one Kay, it made me laugh and say "ouch"

Sand scrubs would be fine . . long as they don't leave sand in their bathers.
