This is my submission in response to the photo provided by Grandma's Goulash for the short-short-story meme Succinctly Yours. We are challenged to write about the photo in either 140 words or less, or 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.
If we are able to include the word of the week, chosen by Grandma's daughter before she sees the picture, all the better. This week's word is "toil".
Here is this week's photo, followed by my 140-character response.
Double stubble, toil or bubble, I'll stamp the fire out, no trouble.
"Marcus, keep your bare feet away from that fire!"
"And don't misquote."
(I'm assuming that's Mom rushing up from the water, and the last line is spoken by a terribly superior elder sister sitting just out of camera range.)
