Micro Fiction Monday


A picture is worth 1,000 words or so they say... Ok, maybe not 1,000 words but no more than 140 characters :-) Let this photo be your muse, write a short story and visit Susan over at Stony River Writing to tell us all about your work! Have fun!

"The first day on the new job is going well," thought Ned. "But, I thought they said snake handler, not snake oil salesman," Ned mused.

I'd prefer the snakes - and I don't like snakes :-)
Nice one.

Ah, nothing like a greasy salesman and there seems to be a lot of them these days! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!

Maybe snake oil sales is to mail room, as snake handler is to CEO? Keep pluggin' away, Neddy boy, keep on pluggin'!

Peggy said...

A great take, snake oil sales must be throught he rood with Ned here!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Nicely done! Sounds like he'd rather be handling the snakes. :)
