Microfiction Monday # 12

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:

How am I going to get my pirate ship from LA to Bourbon St
in time for Mardi Gras
mused Johnny Depp

I know, I'll go ask Alice

(FYI If there are any J.D fans in Microfiction land, Alice in Wonderland opens March 3rd :) )

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. ROFLMAO. This is just too funny and very clever. LOL Wonder if the Rabbit will chime in on the process LOL. Well done. Happy Valentine's Day to you and your family and Gung Hei Fat Choy!

  2. --and in an unusual moment of forward thinking, next week's prompt is a white rabbit! LOL Johnny Depp is just tooooo gorgeous, Peggy, I loved this!

    And hey, Mardi Gras! How'd that come up so fast this year?

  3. Well, our minds do run on the same track! This is terrific! I'm just getting ready to post mine! Funny, funny!!


  4. Asking Alice seems like the perfect answer and you just might get to sequel this next week!

  5. Aww, I love Johnny Depp! Very clever MM. I was thinking of Pirates of the Caribbean when I saw the photo for the first time ;). Have a wonderful week.

  6. Nicely done Peggy, I are a Johnny Depp fan, loved his Chocolat
