Each week about this time, there is a prompt photo posted at the Grandma's Goulash blog for the meme Succinctly Yours.
The photo is to inspire 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 sees the photo. This week's word is foliate, and it seems I'm late this week, because almost everyone else has posted. I wonder how they connected the word with the picture. I wonder how I'm going to do it!
Well, as God said to Noah (according to Bill Cosby), "You never know what you can do until you try."
Here's my submission. You can see I couldn't fit the word of the week in there at all, probably because I was distracted by Bill Cosby and Noah, but I did manage to make it 140 characters including spaces and punctuation.
"Well, they told us to build the stairway 40 cubits high, so we did, and we put the Keep Out sign in as many languages as the foreman knew."
Now I'm going to check out the other submissions for succinctity and foliation.
