Welcome to Microfiction Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters.

Susan over at stonyriver hosts Microfiction Monday. I still can't believe that I can write something on my blog in under 140 words.

The rules are simple,to use Susan's picture she posts then compose a story up to 140 characters including spaces and punctuation.
Then hop on over to Susan's and leave your name. She even has a brilliant gadget to help us count.
Design 215's character counter

As Susan promises, it's fast, it's fiction, it's fun.

Here's this week's picture, and my story to go with it:

"Mommy peas be quiet!"
Rosie whispered.

"I gave my fishes a bath cause they smelled funny,
and now they're taking a nap."


  1. OMG...what a clever story. And even the kid language. I love this. Have a great Monday :)

  2. I love it, too! How fun! And you do know how to write it!

    Enjoy your Monday, Peggy!


  3. Aack! What fun! Now Gracie will have dessert tonight. :-0

  4. LOL. Too funny. I hope the fish are really just taking a nap. Have a wonderful week :)

  5. That's the funniest one I've read! Oh my! Poor fish!

  6. Aww! Poor napping fishies. My idea was along similar lines but just a little bit different take.

  7. Thom;

    Thank you so much, I loved your take too. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
    (PS, I love your blog!)

    Awe Sylvia; You're the best, you know just what to say! Thank you.
    Have a great week, we got snow this morning. Oh boy!

  8. Kay;

    Ouch, how funny! It's not like it will be the first time!
    Have a great week! Snow here today, for the first time!

  9. Poor little fish, lets hope they were washed on Delicate Cycle.

    Great MFM

  10. Bill;

    We can only hope those sweet lil fishies are alive and thriving an not having burial at sea!
    Thanks Bill for coming by.

  11. OMG!!
    One of those Mommy moments where you stand there and just DON'T know what to say... or do!
    I love Rosie!

  12. least the fish were warm and fluffy. :0

    And to think you weren't sure if you could do this! My favorite so far!

  13. Susan;

    ...all mothers know just how those moments feel! The faces of our children are so truthful and we are the ones trying not to laugh and also trying not to cry!
    Thanks Susan, I love the pink skirt and the pink socks on Rosie!

    Mama Zen;
    Thank you so much for coming by nd leaving a great comment!

  14. Hope;

    yep, I'd say the fish are warm and fluffy!
    Thanks for your kind words. I am finding that I am getting a little addicted!

  15. I've heard of gulping fish I've heard of flying fish but never heard of napping fish. Oh well napping gulping or flying still cute.. Thanks for visiting This Blog Of Mine it was fun reading your comments. looking forward to it next week.

  16. Me too Larry, I'm becoming addicted. Good or bad, I'm enjoying it and visiting all these great new blogs!

  17. Oh dear! How will mommy explain that the fish will never wake up?

  18. A sensitive Mommy moment. Maybe Mom can have hubby pick up a brother or sister fish on his way home from work and slip it in while Rosie is taking her bath!
    As you can see, I've been in a similar situation!

  19. Very cute little one and evidently some very quiet little fishies!
