Microfiction: What the Duck?!

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, “inspire.” My stories are below.

Frosty Fowl
(136 characters)
“Why do my pals look so surprised?” Larry wondered, until he joined them in the icy lake and his tail feathers froze. Question answered.

The One (Who makes bath time so much fun!)
(131 characters)
Ed stared at his idol and inspiration, Rubber Ducky, immortalized in song as The One. “He’s so much shorter in person!” Ed thought.

Ernie from Sesame Street sang the Rubber Ducky song, as most parents will recall. How many of you sang the song to your kids and still remember the words and tune? I sure do. Do any of you still sing it, either to one of your little ones or to a grandchild? I’m sure I’m not the only microfiction participant this week who has included a video of Ernie’s rendition of “Rubber Ducky.” This sure brings back memories.

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

Have a great week–
