Microfiction Monday #40


Susan from 'Stony River' dreamt up this meme which she organises and hosts each week. Susan provides a picture and a challenge to write a fiction in 140 characters or less (including punctuation and spaces!) It's fun! Honestly! Click on her name to read more marvels of microfiction and perhaps be tempted to join in.
Here's this week's picture followed by my effort.
You'd think she'd have picked a red gerbera. Pink clashes horribly with me. Wonder if there's any water in that jug? I'm drying out here.

  1. Love the comment about the gerbera colour! And I guess a lobster needs water as long as it's not hot!

  2. The clashing must account for the uneven bulgy eyes! He's blinded by it!

  7. Get that lobster some water quick! Yes. Pink and blue do clash. Great story.

    Have a lovely week.

  8. Someone should let the little guy know if he's that color, he's moments are numbered anyhow. He'll be history long before the daisy!

  9. Obviously a modern artist here working to raise
    consciousness, that different reds can work together
    once one forgets the traditional view that such two reds clash!

  12. Great fun Janice and I think you did very well with so few words. Poor lobster looks a bit flushed.

  13. I sure hope the little fellow gets to find his Briny Water, as long as it is cold.

  14. Oh, poor Louie Lobster--nothing's going right for him. If he were his natural, uncooked color, he'd be greenish, which would go well with the pink gerbera daisy. He must have a shell color disorder, too.

    Good job; I like it!

  15. Somehow this reminds me that lobsters turn red when they're in the boiling water. I think. I've never boiled a lobster. This is a funny microfiction thought.

  16. Instantly I feel sorry for the poor lobster ;-)
