Microfiction Monday #32

Thank you to Susan from 'Stony River' who organises and hosts this entertaining 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.
On seeing this illustration several things leapt to mind and had to be firmly squashed! Here's what survived ;-)
#1: She squinted but couldn't decipher the instructions. She always forgot to read them before getting into the shower. Laser eye surgery was definitely on her to do list.
(140 characters)
#2: So this was the elixir of life but must she drink it or apply it? And did she really want to live forever in the present economic climate?
(138 characters)
Finally, especially for Susan! #3: Susan mused. If it stopped the dreadful itch she'd try it. She'd smell like bad eggs – so? It was sticky too so would patch up the walls.

  1. Ooh, censored stories! Gone for vive la différence for the weekend today. Click here to read my nano story.

  2. For some reason, I found the second entry hilarious. Fretting over the economy even with the elixir of life in hand.

  3. Very well done. I like them all especially the last one for Susan LOL Too funny Have a great week ahead :0

  4. They were funny :-) Great jobs.

  5. Very vreative responses! especially enjoyed the last one offering 2 uses for the "magic potion"!

  6. I like them all! But the second one made me chuckle the most. Great job!

  7. Oh, these are terrific, Janice! Love the one for Susan!!! Love your new header, too! Lovely! Hope you have a great week!


  8. I can SO relate to the need for laser eye surgery.
    Good stories.

  9. You are way more clever then I, Janice! They were all great.
    The one for Susan was a great gift!

  10. The third one struck a chord with me since my family got ate up by mosquitoes recently!

  11. I tried to leave a comment earlier, but it wouldn't let me :(

    I enjoyed them all, especially the third one. Bad eggs. Hilarious!

  12. All three were good, Susan is going to enjoy the one for her.

  13. I like all three -- but the third, oh YES, send that straight over!!

    The second is really food for thought isn't it?
