Don’t Bug Me! Microfiction Monday
Welcome to Kristin, my newest follower! Well, “new” is incorrect. . .more like “newly declared” as she is my daughter’s BFF from college and a supportive reader of Writing in the Buff for a while now. Smart and sweet, she is a daughter of my heart. And I love that God gave her to me with no hours of hard labor involved.
The diversion of Microfiction Monday is especially appreciated by me today. My beloved 87-year-old father-in-law, known as PaPa, is currently hospitalized due to complications stemming from chemotherapy. The bulk of my time is being spent at the hospital, but this MFM, always a bright spot, is a much relished way to bend my mind in a more cheerful direction. I took a few minutes to hammer out a couple of short tales. Below are my stories to match the photo, each 140 characters or less.
I usually post my microfiction early Monday morning, but Georgia’s governor declared a state of emergency due to a severe winter storm dumping snow, sleet and ooh-gobs of ice all over the place. In anticipation of a possible power outage I’m posting my microfiction early. Thanks to Susan at Stony River for hosting and giving me a bright spot in an otherwise icky (and now icy) week.
Stay warm and dry y’all —
