Succinctly yours: tree, bicycle, hibernate

Each week, a photo is posted at the blog Grandma's Goulash for the Succinctly Yours meme. Grandma's daughter Calico chooses a word of the week before she sees the photo. This week, her word is hibernate, but I couldn't fit it into my 140-character mini-story.
One hundred and forty characters? Yes, including punctuation and spaces! We could also write a short story about the photo, using 140 words, but I managed to end up with exactly 140 characters. So here we have this week's photo, along with my mini-submission.


It would be easier to ride up the other side, where it slants, but to make it on Canada's Got Talent, I'd better learn to ride up this side.

You're amazing Kay! I looked at the photo and couldn't think of anything succinct to say! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. (((Hugs))) Jo

If it's the same as Britain's Got Talent, I feel for him :-)

Kay,
Britain's Got Talent brought Susan Boyle to fame. Canada's may just surprise us! These reality shows can come up with things extraordinary. It does a lot of good to ordinary people! Great microfiction!

And I bet you'll do it, too. Those shows always amaze me. Can you enter microfiction?!

This is a man who enjoys a challenge, though the challenge came from you!

It's interesting what different people notice--I had paid no attention to the tree other than I saw a tree. You came up with a unique slant!

Ha! I want to see him do it!

Ah, pursuing the impossible dream! At least he's creative. I'd like to see his attempts. You just never know how far the power of positive thinking will take a person! LOL

Ouch! I think there may be more than a few bruises as he works on his talent. Very clever take on the photo, Kay.
