Succinctly yours: beholden


Thus it behooves us, even as china figurines, to remember we are beholden to God and Native North Americans for turkey, corn, and this land.

Posted for Succinctly Yours
hosted every week by Grandma's Goulash,
when we are invited to look to the prompt photo for inspiration in writing a short story of 140 words, or a short-short story of 140 characters including spaces and punctuation.
There is also a word of the week, chosen by Grandma's daughter Calico before she has seen the photo. This week's word is beholden.
Above is my submission of exactly 140 characters, including S&P, as well as the word of the week.
To all North Americans of ancient native descent, please believe me sincere in my use of the word beholden.
By clicking below you can see how the prompt photo inspired other writer-bloggers to write succinctly,  HERE!

Amen and pass the turkey platter! LOL-->Chances are, if I had been one of the first Pilgrims, I wouldn't have landed at Plymouth Rock via the Mayflower. No, and fittingly (as I would in all likelihood have happily anticipated putting on a celebratory feedbag some where down the line), I'm more than certain I would have done my traveling in a gravy boat!

Kay, this is a wonderful microFiction.

I was trying to figure out if they forgot something from the Indians to be thankful for. The only thing I could think of was tobacco. Perhaps God wasn't real happy about that?

Nicely stated. Those are some smart china figurines.

I fear that is something frequently forgotten. Thanks for such a lovely and succinct reminder, Kay.
