Menoxtra; a little bit on the side.

It's time to make Goulash with Grandma again! (Micro-fiction fun...why don't you give it a go?) Use the picture prompt she provides to create simple, shortest of short, stories to tell its tale - kudos gained for using the weekly bonus word. Today that is IDEAL.


Ideally, ponds would be dry and the fish filleted.
Son, how would we learn to hunt then? What would fathers have left to teach their kids?

Tuth was faced with the modern dilemma; Gen Felis wanted the ideal food, served on a plate, milk on the side.

The blue plastic was not an ideal surface, but Tuth was determined to pass on his water-spear skills.  All Puth needed was a shove.

  1. Great use of the word with that photo. I liked yesterday's ship video too!

  2. Adorable!!! Got a good Sunday giggle!

  3. Passing on the Wisdom of the seasoned hunter...

  4. Wonderful as always. And it strikes me that the first one has a serious lesson behind it!

  5. Crikey ..... the only thing I can see that would be ideal about that picture would be if I were in there chasing those two fish hunting blokes around. And I wouldn't mind giving that Puth bloke a shove either!!

  6. They're so cute! Good writing. I haven't done fiction in ages...

  7. A lovely threesome with nuggets of wisdom.
