Microfiction: They’re Just Pumpkinheads

Posted on Oct 31, 2011 by Lisa Ricard Claro   15 Comments | Posted in Grandma's Goulash · Halloween · microfiction · Succinctly Yours

Good Monday morning, and Happy Halloween!

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, “eerie.”  My stories are below.

 “This is eerie! I’ve developed x-ray vision—I can see your ribs!” Sadly, Jack continued to deny the ill effects of too many margaritas.  (135 characters)
 *          *          *          *
“Want another slice of pumpkin pie?” Bill asked “I think not,” Edgar declined, rubbing his belly. “Just look at me! I’m stuffed!”   (129 characters)

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

Have a great week!

    Shucks, Lisa. 😕 Now I have to vote my preferences.I'll pick the second because pumpkin pie is my favorite vegetable. Seems there is always room for one more piece. Even if a person is stuffed.Too bad that too many margaritas make Jack a dull boy. :rofl:..

    Too many margaritas? I didn't know that was possible. :DWe are using the same muse again for number two. A fun pair of microfictions, Lisa.

    Let me guess…Bill had another slice because he's nothing but bones, right? You're so good you've got me looking for the sequel!
