Succinctly yours: extend

We'd like to extend a warm welcome to everyone attending ClownCon this year. Give yourselves a hand, now. We can't do it, we're just toys.

Posted for  Succinctly Yours
the microfiction meme over at Grandma's Goulash. Every week, a photo is posted for writer-bloggers to use as a prompt in writing a short story (140 words or less) or a micro-short story (140 characters or less, including spaces and punctuation).
Each week, without seeing the picture first, Grandma's daughter Calico chooses a word of the week. Its use is optional, but I like to be able to fit it in, if I can. This week's word is extend.
Above is my submission of 139 characters, including the word of the week.

Loved the ending to that.

Too cute, Kay. :-)

Pat said...

LOL, Kay! That was very cute and funny. Those clowns know their limitations.

Jim said...

Yay! I'll give my hand!
Those are cute looking toys, too bad they can't chime in on the hand.

And there was I thinking they were real! Clever.

Ebie said...

I love this prompt, and I say, send in the clowns!

(One song I forgot you sang it).

Mama Zen said...

Very clever!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

So cute! And is there really a ClownCon, like ComicCon? Wouldn't surprise me, though I've not heard of it.

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Lisa — I don't know. I made it up. Wouldn't surprise me, either. LOL

Poor toys! No applause would surely take the fun out of the performance.

Curiosity got the better of me. I googled and found a ClownCon.


Last year I could find was 2010. So its probably not around any more.
