Microfiction Monday #11

Welcome to Microfiction Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters.
Susan over at Stonyriver hosts Microfiction Monday.

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

Now where's that darn key pad
Faye thought as she looked at her phone
I'm pregy after all these years and
I have to tweet all my friends

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 character counter to help us count.
As Susan promises, it's fast, it's fiction, it's fun.


  1. Oh, good one, Peggy! What a hoot! And this is such fun! I'll be posting mine just a bit later. Hope you've had a good weekend!


  2. Thanks Sylvia;

    I look forward to doing this meme every week!
    Thank for coming by so early, you have been a busy blogger this weekend!

  3. Peggy, this is great! Have a nice week!

  4. Cheryl;

    How sweet of you, thanks for stopping by!
    It's going to snow some more tonight, some huge amount!
    I think I'll sleep in!
    Have a great week also!

  5. Oh no is it monday already? I'm suppose to start my new job but I forget where it is located. Where is that phone number of my boss?

  6. OMG...the joys of modern technology. This is so appropriate for the picture LOL Too funny and well done. :)

  7. My oh my how things change even though somehow they remain the same!

  8. Lin;

    I love your MFM story;
    Gosh that would be awful to not remember where your new job was located. That sounds like a bad dream that I might have had once!

  9. Thom, you are so nice. Thank you for always being so complimentary!
    Missed you last week!

    You are so right, some things change yet some stay the same!
    Thank you ro stopping by and leaving such a nice comment!
    Have a great week !

  10. Now that was anachronistically fun! You belong in the SCA, the Society for Creative Anachronisms! Great little tweet :)

  11. Peggy, can you *imagine* if we suddenly had to live with technology that's a century old? Would we be lost or what -- but congratulations to Faye anyhow, this was so cute!

    Lin's is great too -- what a Monday that would be OMG

  12. Peggy, I'm sure my children would say that that's the kind of phone we had when we were little! Ha ha! Yeah, with the dinosaurs running around too. Well done!

  13. She could try Morse Code . . .

  14. Susan;

    It's a scary thought ! I'm so glad that I am part of this generation, just think, no blogging either!

    Lin's is great too, I wish that she would join us. Every week she writes one an I ask her to join us!
    I think she might just do that. I know that hse has so much going on that she doesn't want to be tied to it but she can always take time off and just do it when she has the time!
    We'll see, I'm very optimistic!
    We all love your meme. Best one that I've ever done!How does it feel to be awesome?

  15. SouthlakesMom;

    Yep, I can just see you andme and Wilma and Barney, Betty and Fred all together! My kids probably think that way too. One thing that we (I) didn't have was a cell phone. Sometimes that's bad but mostly would have been a good thing!
    Til next week my friend! Have a great week!

  16. First50;

    Perfect idea, not sure she has a clue though! Kind of like me this morning! These re fun, I love reading all the different ones!
    Have a good evening!

  17. Oops! Bit of a time-warp there . . . lol!

  18. Jabblog;

    Yes, she got her centuries mixed up!
    Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great week1

  19. I think I would have that expression, too, if I received that news at my stage of life! And texting or tweeting puts a new spin an "announcing the news" that I didn't have in my baby years.

  20. Barbara;

    Me either, I'm glad that I had all my babies when I was younger. I do wish that I had some of these new technologies earlier though!
    Thanks for coming by and leaving a great comment!

  21. it scares me to think how we would live without the modern technology now...
    great story! :)

  22. Very good. Gotta tell the world and keep everyone up-to-date.


  23. Juliana;

    It would be hard to not have these convienences that we have now, that's for sure!
    Good thing that we don't !
    Thanks fr coming by today!


    Women do have to tell their friends when something wonderful(and maybe not so wonderful)happens to them! Thanks Nessa

  24. This reminds me of that old joke, "What are the 3 forms of communication? Telegraph, Telephone and tell a woman." :)

    Well done friend!

  25. Hope;

    I love that and again never heard it before! You are a fountain of information, jokes, poems and quotes!
    Thanks you!

  26. To think they were once as big as a brick and cost the average wage earner $6000 to $8000. And now between the three of us we have five mobiles and three landlines!

  27. John;

    I hear ya, we have similar amounts of phones, and can't imagine not having them! We are very lucky indeed!
    Thanks so much for coming by and leaving a great comment!
    Had me thinking again about the past!

  28. I look forward to doing this meme every week!
