Microfiction: Office Politics

This past Friday, Grandma at Grandma’s Goulash gave me a great shout out regarding the upcoming anniversary of Book Blurb Friday.  In just three weeks Book Blurb Friday will be a year old. Thanks again, Grandma, for rolling out the banner.

As it happens, Grandma is soon coming up on the one year anniversary of Succinctly Yours, and you know how much I love this Monday meme. Grandma took the torch passed by Susan of Stony River, much to the delight of so many writers who participate in this meme. If you haven’t checked out Grandma’s blog then you’re missing out. Head over there now!

Welcome to today’s microfiction!  

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, “speculate.”  My stories are below.

Immediate Retribution
(140 characters)

Nervous, Al hid under his desk when the boss came by. He congratulated himself for his ingenuity, until he realized he was stuck and couldn’t get out.

Lazy Contribution
(140 characters)

The Invisible Man loved moonlighting as an office clerk. He was only caught napping if he snored. Even then, coworkers could only speculate.

Thanks for visiting! See you on Wednesday for the naked truth about . . . Statistics.

Have a great week!
