Microfiction Monday # 6

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

Susan over at Stonyriver hosts Microfiction Monday.

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 and that would be a character counter

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

"When I agreed to model for the Vegetable Lovers of America,
I had no idea I would have to
wear a shiitake on my head!" Heidi sighed


  1. How funny! I hadn't noticed that!

  2. Thanks MamaZen;

    I love to read all the first impressions of the same photo.
    have a great week!

  3. blueviolet;

    it's always the first thing that comes to my mind! Sometimes good, sometimes maybe not. But always fun! Have a great day!

  4. Great one, Peggy! It is fun, isn't it? Funny what pops into you head when you look at the photo, isn't it?


  5. This was good Peggy, I like how you used the photo. You have a wonderful imagination.

    You're so right,
    I was fixated on her top knot...and her balancing very carefully.
    I love the creative part and how we see things. That's fun for me and then reading all the posts that saw something completely different from mine.
    Best part this week for me though, was to see your name on the meme,
    I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next week!

  8. Quite often I throw in an LOL because it sparked a chuckle. This, on the other hand, had me laughing out loud :D Nice take!

  9. That sure is a very weird sort of hairdo, I must say. The dress would do a nice job of covering my pot belly and fat thighs though.

  10. ROFL!! When I first saw this picture, I thought, what the HECK is on her head??

    She's absolutely perfect for Vegetable Lovers of America: is her dress supposed to be a sun-dried tomato or a red hot chili pepper, do you think?

  11. Kay;

    It is a weird sort of hairdo,reminded me of a mushroom!
    Dress is different too!
    ae a good week Kay!


    Thanks for the great compliment,
    love doing this meme,
    particularly all the different takes on the same theme!
    Have a great week!


    Thank you s much, a laugh is a good way to start the day. :)
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

  12. I looked at her red dress and thought the same; but I only had 140 char...
    Maybe even a bell pepper or a red squash.
    Love your pictures, they are so ripe for comments!
    Have a good week, love the holidays but am glad to be back to my routine! :)

  13. Susan;

    That last comment was for you, sorry about not addressing it correctly, it's Monday and have only had one cup of joe!

  15. OMG..I'm rolling on the floor here. This is just brilliant. I didn't even pay attention to the thing on her head until I read this. WELL DONE!!! I've got tears from laughing so hard LOL :)

  16. Thom;

    You just made my day.
    Thank you! I must be a hair person cause her hair was the first thing that I noticed!
    I Am havin a bad hair week though!
    Have a great rest of the week!

  17. For the hundreth time she told her mom...I am not anerextic. (SP?)

  18. Is THAT what that hairstyle was inspired by? :0

    Too, too funny! Laughing is a good way to start the work week after being on vacation. Thanks!

  19. Are you sure it's shiitake? Maybe Noah's Ark!

    Well done -- I hadn't really thought about the shape of it until I read yours!

  20. S.L.M

    It could be a Noah's Ark, or a Judas'or Pig ear? I saw the shape right away and that's all I could think about.
    I think this is the most fun meme that I do! I just love reading all the other posts!
    Have a great week!


    You are really good at this.
    I look forward to reading your's every week too!

  21. Hope;
    Laughing is the only way.....well only way that's allowed by law abiding people that is!
    Thanks for always giving me a smile BACK!

  22. Doesn't everyone like to wear shitakes on their heads?

  23. Very good! I knew that topknot reminded me of something!

  24. Oh how very funny Peggy! I loved this! Thanks for the chuckle!

  25. M.Mama;

    I guess in blogyland they do!
    Thanks for stopping by .
    Hav a great week!

    It's hard to wear a vegetable as part of your coutour, that's for sure.
    This was fun this week after !
    Stay warm, where ever you live!

  26. Cheryl;
    I couldn't help but be fixated on her top knot!
    Glad you got a smile from it!

  27. It kind of looks like i thought the same as everybody else but I never looked at anybodys takes until I posted mine. The cup of java idea came from a coffee cup my sister use to use fat and round on the bottom and narrower on top. But now I see yours and it does represent an upside down mushroom you did a great job Peggy of course you always do.

    did you read myc Sunday-160 on monkey mans website mine was and addition to his Sunday-160 it came out pretty good I think check it out

    Walk in my shoes

  28. Larry;

    Thank you for your great comment. I see the coffee cup too, now that I look at it! I went with the mushroom because that was my first reaction!
    I will get over and read your piece, you are such a good writer.
    Stay warm Latty, It's darn cold here!

  29. Too Funny! I never even noticed how crazy the hair was... she looks so posh! this was great
