Microfiction Monday # 53



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.

So here is this weeks picture and my story to go with.


Ain't that the Life-Buoy from our sunkin skiff shouted Popeye
I pray the pirates didn't melt dear Olive Oyl and add her to the soap.

Now Leap on over to Susan's place and leave your name.
She even has a brilliant counter to help us count.
As Susan promises, it's fast, it's fiction, it's fun!

  37. Poor Olive. I always liked her better than Popeye. But I guess he couldn't be used for soap - Spinach Soap?
