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, “serendipity.”

Rocky’s Revenge
(140 characters)
Wily Rocky chortled when his archenemy Tom walked right into a raccoon trap, leaving the way clear for Rocky to pillage the trash with glee.

Granny’s Solution
(138 characters)
Granny had no patience for cats or raccoons. She called her favorite TV personality to handle the problem:  Billy the Exterminator.

Billy the Exterminator knows a gold mine when he sees it and turns Tom and Rocky into reality TV stars. And that, my friend, is serendipity!
