Microfiction Monday

Microfiction Monday


Susan at Stony River challenges bloggers every Monday with a linky party called, Microfiction Monday.

She posts a picture and in 140 characters or less, you are to write a story or short poem based on the picture.



So I told her, “I know I said I’d go with you, but you said, ‘Across the pond,’ right? “ Like I knew it was a figure of speech. British chicks! Why can’t they talk American!

  6. Gotta watch that cross-cultural slang. When I was in college a guy in my study group was from England. Imagine our shock when we're all gathered in the library and he asks to borrow a rubber. Imagine his shock when he learned that in American a rubber isn't an eraser and they are certainly not meant to be BORROWED!
