MicroFiction Monday



Susan at Stony River
Farm hosts Microfiction Monday. She posts a picture and you compose a story in 140 characters. You can click on the icon to get further instructions. To help you along she has posted a wonderful link that counts your characters for you! How great is that! You can get the counter at Design 215.

This meme is easy and it's fun! Thanks, Susan for hosting.

And here's the picture for the day!



What did she tell me? Ride the waves? I think she got it backwards!
These waves are going to ride me. And where's the life preserver? Uh oh!

Sounds as if this Poor Soul is caught up in a Hurricane. I guess one shouldn't believe all they hear. Nice one Sylvia, mine is up and posted.

Quilly said...

I hope his life was preserved! Most of these poor fellas aren't faring too well!

Pat said...

He should've gone to the more expensive, but more reliable boat rental company. They give better and more thorough advice for the extra bucks.

Peggy said...

Now this feels right.
Back here at your place commenting on your MF.
You still amaze me at how good you are at this.
Have a wonderful holiday tomorrow.

I have a terrible feeling that even a life-jacket wouldn't help him much in this situation--guess the old saying is true--"You get what you pay for." Have a great week. Cheers!

A perfect storm isn't for everybody! Great job, Sylvia! Have a great week.

lotusleaf said...

Diane said...

Jim said...

Uh oh! Yes, Sylvia, it is time to say that, huh? You did good! :)
..
You got me to thinking, have you read any that wrote a peaceful scene? Pretty much panic in the picture I am afraid.

Thom said...

Crap I forgot to tell you that you have been tagged on my blog. Happy Sunday night :)

Sophie said...

A life preserver or maybe a boat preserver (if those exist, lol)

Jillien said...

Ellie said...

LOL. I think he should have tried the surfing for beginners class! Great story.

Have a wonderful week x

Pietro said...

Very nice story, Sylvia!
Happy new week :-)

Kay said...

My son is a surfer so I can relate to this one. But yikes! That's a mother's nightmare.

anthonynorth said...

He's in for a rough ride :-)
Nice one.

Cher said...

i am enjoying you microfiction mondays. :)

Madeleine said...

LOL! made me chuckle.
If you hop over to mine at http://scribbleandedit.blogspot.com you'll see my second attempt at this genre.

Greyscale Territory said...

Like how you turned riding the waves into the waves doing the riding! Nifty little microfiction!

EG Wow said...

You sound like you have boating experience, Sylvia. I enjoyed this. :)

Nessa said...

She should have told him to stay out of the water. He needs a better advice giver. But it made a wonderful story.

Melissa B. said...

Bravo! Sounds like the conditions along the East Coast beaches in the wake of Hurrican Earl...

jabblog said...

It seems she left out the advice about the weather! Great take, Sylvia. Hope you're enjoying your public holiday.

hope said...

Ah, seafaring isn't for me either!

septembermom said...

The waves are formidable opponents! Good one :) Enjoy your week!

Jingle said...

wow,
ride waves,
waves ride him....

dynamic and witty take.

erik said...

She's trying to cash in his life insurance policy, I suspect!

ninotaziz said...

Methinks she got her revenge, Sylvia!

John's comments said...

Listen better next time! Thanks for dropping by to read my 140. Sorry for the delay but dealing with drama of son having to dash across Italy to catch his flight. Hope your week goes better then his!

SouthLakesMom said...

This reminds me of the t-shirt I saw:

She said I never listen
....or something like that

Michael G-G said...

Not sure I'd take anyone's advice while at sea: I tend towards seasickness.

Great MM, Sylvia--have a great week.

Scott said...

I hate it when I forget to pack the life preserver, also known as personal flotation device.

KB said...

I think he's going to be needing all the help he can get.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
