'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

Menoxtra - a bit on the side

It's goulash time with Grandma again... that's the microfiction challenge of a picture prompt, 140 characters (or words) max and a bonus word for inclusion. This week it is NEBULOUS.


Mrs White grabbed hubby’s chubby, worried that his idea of interflake transportation was nebulous at best.

“Flakel my dear, I am going to prove that yonder drift is as nebulous as any cloud!”

That vision of the bearded fellow on the horizon last evening caused Powder to have a light-bulb moment; perhaps her brother’s notions about sleighs and weather-lifts was not so nebulous a concept as she had at first thought.

  1. OMD NOT YOU TOO????? OMD those are SNOW FREAKS..... OMD OMD Our EYES... OUR EYES...

    RUN FOR THE HILLS... the Snow Freaks are about to take over YOUR place next.

  2. You got the prompt word in all three of your tales. That's amazing. Loved "interflake transportation". A sci fi take on this photo was especially creative.

  3. Sounds like you got a sic fi, an adventure, AND perhaps a coming-of-age story out of the prompt! Excellent!
