Microfiction Monday # 24

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

Here is this weeks picture and my story to go with it.

Brother Timothy,
I realize we are technically only "bookmonks",
but for the love of God,
display some sort of decorum and sit up.

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. LOL Too funny. Must be a monk in training. LOL

  2. He must be , but he looks kind of old! You never know though when the calling will come I guess.
    Have a good week Thom!

  3. Fantastic, Peggy! I love it! What a hoot! Hope you have a great week! Enjoy! Will you be seeing Kay, soon?


  4. Sylvia;

    Thank you my friend for the great comment.
    I go up to Chicago on Tuesday for my Dr appointment and we meet Kay and family for lunch. Wish it could be longer but Jim has to work on Wednesday. I can't wait, it's been over a year.
    I'll tell her hello from you!
    She is just so sweet and wonderful.

  5. ROFL! Sounds like something I'd say to my kids, I can just hear it!

    Meanwhile, good luck at the Doc's on Tuesday - I hope all goes *very* well, and a big hug to Kay (and to you too) from me!

  6. Sounds as if Brother Timothy may be showing a bit more than what he knows.

    Like Susan, hoping you have a good appointment on Tuesday.

  7. Such a lack of manners. Nice one.

  8. Susan;

    I've said similar things to my kids, particularly in church.
    I Iwill give Kay and Art a huge hug from you.
    Thanks for the good luck wish, from your lips to Gods' ears!

  9. I'm holding good thoughts for your Doc appointment! Sending a hug to you and to Kay! Have a great lunch! I'll be thinking about you on Tuesday!


  10. Bill;

    Brother Tim is improvising a bit, you're right.
    Thanks for the kind thoughts to my friend.
    Always enjoy your comments.

  11. anthony;

    Just because they are faux monks they feel like rebels.
    Thanks so much for stopping by, I enjoy you very much!
    Have a great week.

  12. Sylvia;

    That's so dear, thank you.
    I'll give Kay an extra big hug!
    Have a great week.

  13. I suppose Brother Timothy is the one always bending the rules.

  14. Christpher;

    He looks like a risk taker to me.
    Have a good week .

  15. Boy that gave me a chuckle....
    blessings to you this week

  21. I'll not sit up for you see the world anew when you start from a different placeMy Twitter story

  22. For the love of God, indeed. Sometimes that's the ONLY motivation for decorum!

  23. LOL!! Very good - a monk without decorum is like a book without pages!

  24. Sounds like me talking to my daughter!


  25. John;
    I love your comment. So clever!
    I can just hear Borther Timothy now.
    Have a great week!

  26. Southlakes;

    Sometimes even Monks have to pull out all the stops to get their point accross.
    Well put my friend, thank you.
    Love it.

  27. Jabblog;

    You would think,but Timothy sees it differently, I see.
    Thank you for playing it forward with me. I love this part! :)

  28. Mama;

    Brings back those same memories to me too.
    Thank you and have a great day.

  29. Hahaha....Very cute and clever, too.

  30. Wow Pat; I was just over visiting you. Thanks you, I love doing these.

  31. You'd think the Sr. Monk could just take a nap when he feels like it. :)

    Love the "decorum" line..have a good week!

  32. Bookmonks, indeed! I love the term; I love your MM.

    Thanks for stopping by my one. And I hope your doctor's visit goes well.

  34. You ROCK it , Peggy..I love it..
    always witty and what a fabulous MM, Peggy!

    Have you a safe and blessed visit to the Doc's.


  35. This reminds me of my mother reprimanding me in church when I was a kid. :)

  36. He probably fell asleep waiting for your neo-globe to load so he could read your post. It freezes my computer every time and I have to use the Task Manager to get it to work again.

    I love the lack of decorum.

  37. Didn't Emily Post write a monk etiquette book? Brother Tim should read it.

    Thanks for the smile.

    My MM: Afterlife

  38. Grandma;
    I'm not sure about Emily's etiguette for Monks but I agree, they should write one. :)
    Thanks so much for coming .
    Have a great week.

  39. Hope;

    It's that ole decorum problem.
    Maybe they should get a union Monks.
    Have a great week Hope!
    You always make me smile.

  40. Michael;
