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 here's the picture for the day!
He sat staring out the classroom window at the clock outside. A cooking class!
How could he have been so dumb to let her sign him up? 


And from the brilliant lady in Mumbai!

It's good the finicky head lady has her windows closed. We actually passed off an old clock with a 7 as an inverted 2, as an antique.

Wonderful story, Sylvia. We west-coasters are on the ball today. (Like you, I could do with some sun, though. But when the sun has shone, it has been freezing here in Portland.)

Have a great week, my friend.

Peggy said...

Sylvia;

Gosh your header is a breath of fresh Spring air!
Have a bit of cabin fever myself!
Perfect story for the picture. The building looks so much like a school.
Have a wonderful week and thanks again for the picture of spring!

Jim said...

You are right, Sylvia! He should have signed up for the typing class instead. I did that and was one of two fellows in the class. Now I can type over 50 words per minute writing my blogs. :)
Oh yes, I got to know 28 girls really good while taking the class!

Well, now he will always be able to feed himself! LOL Good take!

Pat said...

Thanks for the laugh, Sylvia! Maybe he can get his money back, but then again, his lady might take offense. Good one!

Diane said...

He sure did get sweet talked into that one.... :O)

:) things that have to be done for peacekeeping!

Love can cloud our judgment!

Martha Z said...

This gets a chuckle as do Sam and Mojo ready for Valentines Day.
On the road again, if I'd stay home I could do better at visiting blogs; but then I would run out of things to blog about.

Karen said...

I can see the glances exchanged between them as each goes down a separate road in their minds. Hope you have a wonderful week, Sylvia! :>

Susan Fobes said...

LOL! This reminds me of the time I convinced my husband to take a water arobics class with me...I still haven't heard the end of it!

Elizabeth Mueller said...

Wow, she sure knows how to get him to do things her way, doesn't she? LOL!

Enjoy your week!

time-keeper said...

Oh, excellent! Loved this take. :)

Debora said...

Poor guy. But better than the mamba class I made my husband endure...

Your header is spectacular!

Rekha said...

A good one...maybe its her way of telling him..its his turn to cook and properly at that.... ;)

Kay said...

Hmmm... sounds like somebody thought he needed some gastronomical lessons.

Madeleine said...

Poor chap I hope he enjoys eating what he makes though :O)

anthonynorth said...

So this cooking thing. It's heating things up, right ;-)
Enjoyed that.

jabblog said...

Cookery classes - ugh! The building looks really institutional.

John's comments said...

Clearly preparing him for 'we have to talk conversation'

indicaspecies said...

Oh poor guy.
I have put up my first Microfiction story. Do drop by if you have a minute please. Have a lovely day.

Gattina said...

Lol ! and my son loves to attend cooking classes and cooks like a chef !

Scott said...

lol NEVER let your lady sign you up for a class! WHEN wil he learn?

izzy said...

Definitely have to hide out from that! thanks-

Dianne said...

funny about getting stuck in a cooking class
and I love the reference to an inverted 2 :)

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

He should be glad that she enrolled him in Cooking Class, he may need it someday if they should have a falling out. Or was it his Mum that got him in School so as when he moves out he will be able to cook for himself.

Priyanka Bhowmick said...

so well penned in such a few words.. great story!!

Madeleine said...

Great micros. Great ideas :O)

septembermom said...

Both of them are great! I had a nice giggle from them. Thank you and have a wonderful week :)

Pooch said...

The student staring out of the classroom window is a timeless scene, isn't it? Cooking class is a nice touch!

:)

Grandma's Goulash said...

I've sat through a few classes like that. And the dang clock just won't budge. Good one.

My MM: Truth In Advertising

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

My sympathies are with him! I always watched the clock during math! Ugh! It dragged...now the literature classes, on the other hand...they sped past!

hope said...

Ah, the things we do for love. :)

Ruthi said...

I can do cooking class as long as I can bring home the left-over. LOL

Melanie Sherman said...

Sylvia,

I'd agree with the protagonist. A cooking class would be torture. But I also love the inverted "2" passing off as a "7" on the...er...antique.

Melanie Sherman said...

Oh, and I'm following you now, just so I can see that header again.

Vicki said...

Isn't that the truth ... when we are involved in something that would rather not be a part of ... we all become clock watchers.
Very well done!

Kay L. Davies said...

Good ones, Sylvia.
I'm away from home, don't know how many I can visit or when, but just touching base.

Margaret said...

LOL. What a kind man - not many would do this.

gaelikaa said...

That's a bit of a pain all right. I'd hate it too!

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.
