Microfiction: Naughty Nana (Oops…Lost My G-Rating)

Posted on Oct 10, 2011 by Lisa Ricard Claro   19 Comments | Posted in contests · microfiction
Good Monday morning!
I’d like to send out a big “thank you” to Michael Gettel-Gilmartin, who stands at the helm of two great blogs, The Year of Writing Dangerously and Middle Grade Mafioso. Michael recently offered a contest, and I won the book “We Are Not Eaten by Yaks: An Accidental Adventure” by author C. Alexander London. Although this book is intended for middle grade readers, I have to say I’m enjoying it immensely. Thanks, Michael!

Grandma’s Goulash graciously hosts Succinctly Yours, the wonderful meme for those of us addicted to microfiction. The trick is to write a story in 140 characters or less using the photo below as inspiration. To add to the challenge is the word of the week, “resplendent.”  My stories are below.


Naughty Nana – Piece of Brass
(139 characters)

Nana was upset when she discovered the loss of her favorite brass cane with the Hell’s Angels insignia. It was such a conversation starter!

Naughty Nana – Piece of Ass
(137 characters)
Feeling resplendent, Nana asked her granddaughter to walk far ahead so as not to upstage her arrival at the Retired Pole Dancers Reunion.

I apologize if anyone is offended by the second microfiction.  I was overcome with a fit of the giggles, and that’s the only explanation I have. That and a twisted sense of humor.

Thanks for visiting! See you on Wednesday for the naked truth about . . . IVDD (intervertebral disc disease), a happy, wheelchair-bound dog named Bailey, and the special humans who love and care for him.

Have a great week!

    Great job, Lisa! I love your micro fictions. Oh – yesterday I saw two dachshunds on a porch, one was chocolate and the other a caramel color. They were so cute! Made me think of you.

    Hi Lisa ~~ My vote is for the second one because it involved both characters in the picture. ..BTW, you are not signed up with GMa's Mr. Linky machine for this week. I just figured you would do a micro-fiction so I peeked in on you…

    TOO funny, Lisa, and I'm glad Jim pointed out you missed Grandma's linky (what would we have thought of that word when we were children?) but I follow your blog, so am looking forward to the intervertebral disc disease discussion, because our darlin' Lindy has spinal issues.Kay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie’s Guide to Adventurous Travel

    I might get offended, if only I could stop laughing. :DI found this photo quite difficult and wasn't happy with any of my stories. Your titles and stories are paired perfection. Grandma bows in awe!

    Wow, Nana was quite the wild thing in her youth–Hell's Angels member/pole dancer. Thanks for the double laughs!

    I thought that she was an old lesbian aunt walking behind her niece to check her out, remembering when she used to look like that, lol!
