Microfiction Monday #17

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:

As Alex walked passed the poster and saw his likeness,
he wondered if the Navy's rule, don't ask don't tell,
should also apply to him?

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. Hi its still me from random short stories but having starting to do more 140 and less character bits I decided to set up this site Random Twitter Stories. refreshing/recycling some old twitter stories to get it going. Anyway back to yours... perhaps the 'gals' from our stories could hitch up but I think mine would run a mile

  2. An interesting question :-)
    Enjoyed that.

  3. Great one, Peggy! We were thinking along the same lines -- you know, great minds!!! Hope you have a great week!


  4. Sylvia;

    Thanks so much, I am very pleased that we were thinking a like.
    Have a good week my friend.

    Thank you Anthony,
    I enjoy this meme and really enjoy reading all the stories


    I think our girls would get along well Fun reading yours!.

  5. YOu and I thought along the same lines, this was good. I am wondering what our Thom is coming up with. Mine is up for the world to see.

  6. I will be right over to read yours.
    Thanks Bill for coming by.

  7. Isn't it nice that now you don't have to be a man to join the Navy?

  8. Kay;

    Jim's Mom was a Navy nurse in Hawaii as a matter of fact!
    When do you leave , tomorrow?


    How nice, thank you!
    have a good week!

  9. Busted! LOL His face and those curls might pass, but not that 'figure'. Posing for a poster beats signing up I suppose !

  11. Brilliant - very much in the news recently, I think. This will keep me smiling all day!
