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 link under the title 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 while it's hard to believe, this is post number 1505!!!


And here's the picture for the day!

 
This was more than a bit part in a cheap movie. He just hoped he could
pull it off. If Carlos found out where he was, he was a dead man. 


And here is what my friend in India wrote!
I know he said "change has happened", but I never thought I'd lose my shirt like this. I think I'll move from Arizona to Washington DC. 
Don't you love it?

Ooh, Sylvia! You've written a thriller. Here's hoping our hero can pull off the role!

Have a great week.

Love it! Crossing my fingers Carlos never finds out! :)

SparkleFarkle said...

Don't tell me he's trying out for the lead in Aladdin, because if he is, he's on the wrong side of the carpet!

Good one, Sylvia!

Pat said...

Ooh...intrigue...mystery. Now I must hear more. Will Carlos find him? Will he win an Oscar? Only the shadow knows.

Peggy said...

I love mysteries too. What will Carlos do when he finds out. I love reading your stories every week. You have a great way of switching it up. Have a great week my friend!

Suz said...

Your hero is too good for those bit parts anyway! I do hope along with him that he can pull it off.
In fact, I will pull for him! I definitely am not a fan of Carlos'.

Great mystery/thriller, and in only 140 characters! Terrific microfiction.

Carlos needs some mariachis to change the tone of his outlook!

His poncho should hide his shivering!

Lets hope that isn't Carlos on the burro behind.

Sylvia Ma'am,
Simple and sweet. I like it! And also you are prolific! A cursory glance of your works tells me you are a sure bet for regular visits. Your novel, Chasing Ashes ( I have yet to finish it), you photos,terrific! Thank you for signing in into my follower's group. It pleases me to have you in my Chosen Blog list,too. Thanks!

he could have found somewhere better than the desert and a few cacti to hide behind ~ let's hope that poncho blends in with the sand ~ else he'll have to pull down his sombrero lower over his face :) ~
had great fun with this
have a great week

I love your stories just the way they are. Great cliffhangers so that we can make up a new story everytime we visit!

Lovely, Sylvia!

Hiding in plain sight. Wonderful.

Susan at Stony River said...

I love them both! Never thought of the movie angle -- but CHANGE, oh dear, I laughed out loud!

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.
