Microfiction Monday #32


Susan from 'Stony River' organises and hosts this weekly meme. She provides a picture and the challenge is to create a story in 140 characters or less. Click here to read more marvels of microfiction – and perhaps be tempted to join in.
Susan has kept this meme going despite undertaking a BIG move – so let's hear three more rousing cheers for her now that she's safely back in the USA J

Here is this week's picture followed by my offering.
'My book's falling off my lap because of this straitjacket,' the middle monk grumbled.
'Try reading like this,' said the monk on the floor.

  14. Indeed. When I read on the floor I much prefer to leave the chair upright and stretch out on my tummy. What kind of inhuman asylum are these poor fellows in?!
