Oh, Mama dearest, I'm afraid I'm simply not ready to learn to play the balalaika, but I would like to play horsie with your rocking chair.

Every week, a photo is provided by Grandma's Goulash, to inspire bloggers to write about it in 140 words or less, or else 140 characters including spaces and punctuation. Above is my submission of 139 characters.
There is also a word of the week, chosen by Grandma's daughter Calico before she saw the prompt photo. This week's word is not balalaika. Actually, it is impetus, something of which I have very little these days, certainly not enough to be able to share any with my Succinct submission.
