Succinctly yours...fabricate

“How low can you go?” asks Grandma
at Grandma’s Goulash about her writing meme 
Succinctly
Yours.

Use her picture to prompt a story of up to 140 characters or 140 words. Use the word of the week, if you can, but it is optional. This week’s word is 'fabricate'.

Criminals could fabricate evidence, Holmes knew, but there was no evidence of any evidence-fabrication here.
108 characters by Kay Davies, including spaces and punctuation.

My husband's contribution is even shorter:
Holmes could find no clues, even though he checked the stained fabric eight times.
82 characters by Richard Schear, including spaces and punctuation.

To see how the prompt and/or the word of the week inspired other writer-bloggers

Ha ha we had the same thoughts, the Holmes and Watson theme!

I love the way you share this hobby. As I write my husband is underneath the car......again.

It was a good thing you had the 'pun' in italics, otherwise I wouldn't have spotted it immediately! Great contributions of both of you!

Lynette Killam said...

Lots of great word play here, Kay...nicely done, the two of you!
I must say I loved Dick's "fabric eight", and the (pun)ctuation. It's always exciting to read a different twist on the take. Clearly, your husband is an 'outside-the-box' kind of guy...and the world definitely needs more of those.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend...:)

I like both contributions - well done! Mine is Sherlock-based, too:-)

Hi Kay ~~ Both are great! That means a GREAT TIE in my book for you guys.

You are the first I peeked in on. I think a lot will have Sherlock Holmes related µ-fiction today.

It is so cool that you both join in the fun. I am going to propose the idea to my hubby. Great takes, btw.

Nice one, Kay.

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Nicely done, both. And I feel like a dunce. I read the second one three times before the bulb went on. LOL Time for a nap!

SquirrelQueen said...

The picture certainly brings Sherlock Holmes to mind. I like both of your versions, well done.

Susan Fobes said...

Kay, my first thought was crime, and then I saw something funny... Well done and way under the 140 marker!

This is fun. You are both good with this sort of games. I like them.

Thank you for captions.

Unless, of course, Holmes is fabricating! Thanks for getting your hubby on board, Kay.

"Fabric eight". How I wish that I'd thought of that. Glad you've joined us, Richard.

OK- I love the fabric eight. Very cute.

Pat said...

Yours made me laugh and your husband's pun is oh-so-clever! Kudos to Richard!

Nice to have another wife/husband team aboard. :-)

Such fun twists on the image, detective seemed to be the big winner for this one.
