Microfiction Monday

Welcome to Microfiction Monday,
where a picture only paints 140 characters.


Susan at Stony River has begun a Microfiction Monday wherein participants write a story in 140 characters based on a particular image that Susan has chosen for the day.  Design 215’s Character Counter helps keep track of the number of characters. It’s a fun exercise in creative conciseness…or concise creativity…

The picture for today and my take on it:

Annie was looking for the box of dress-up clothes, but what she found convinced her she wasn’t in that much of a hurry to grow up after all.

  1. I wouldn’t want to play dress up in a corset either! Those things were some kind of torture device.

    Congratulations on 30 years of marriage, those pictures of the two of you are very sweet.

  2. A new theme? I can’t be for sure cuz I’m house sitting and doing this on my iPhone. No computer here. It’s wonderful :). I love your story. Annie seems wise in her young years. LOL. well done

  3. Phew! Too right – there are a few things kids see and wonder whether growing up is really what they want to do… hmmm, men not growing up… there’s something in there 😉 Great capture of subdued expectations!

  4. Poor Annie! Who could blame her? And whooooo put a corset in a dress-up box, was it Grandma who didn’t want to ever wear it again? ROFL

    I love how you did this one!

    Happy 30th Anniversary–that’s a wonderful milestone. Congratulations!
