Every week at the blog Grandma's Goulash, writer-bloggers find a photo to inspire us to write succinctly, which means something like "brevity squared". We can write a short story of 140 words, or a short-short item of 140 characters including spaces and punctuation.
There is also a word of the week for us to include if we can. This week's word is memories, which didn't fit into my poem, so I had to use it in my title (which doesn't count). The word is chosen by Grandma's daughter, Calico, before she sees the photo.
I want a dinosaur for Christmas.
Only a dinosaur will do:
One to stand so tall,
To make my bro feel small,
He will cry every time he looks!
