About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a prompt, and your mission, if you choose to play along, is to tell a story based on that prompt in 140 characters or less. If you accept the challenge, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale.
A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at charactercountonline.com.
I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing us a new prompt. Have Fun!
From Michael at Morpethroad:
She needs iron in her diet.
You won’t fool her.
Salami nanas are the newest craze.
You’ve an ice-blocks chance you know.
How was that?
From Reena at ReInventions
Could this really be the cause of a divorce? Her US-based trophy husband, turned out to be non-vegetarian. Ouch! Back home, the Jain girl had never smelt or tasted meat.
From Oneta at Sweet Aroma:
Sixty years she cooked for her meat-lovin’ man. Now heart-healthy diet only! Fruit ok’d by the rehab nurse. Love found a way!
From Neel at Neel Writes Blog:
Pre-marriage life was bliss. Post marriage the love peeled away.
What remained was the hard crust of hate.
Post-divorce she held on to the crumbs.
From Kitty at Kitty’s Verses:
He was offered the food, & the cat grabbed it from his hand.She lay unconscious,after taking a bite.The host was at her wit’s end.
From Di at Pensitivity101:
She said she fancied banana pizza!
From Michael at Flawed Masterpieces:
Jerry peeled the banana, waiting for a pleasant sunrise, only to discover the monkey had swapped out the fruit for day old kielbasa!
From Willow at Willowdot21:
It was decided that this was a clever joke. Someone had removed the banana fruit from the skin. They all thought it was fun,sadly it wasn’t.
From Kathryn at Another Foodie Blogger:
Sue loved playing pranks on her vegetarian friend, but she might have gone too far. After “peeling” the banana, Jen fled the room, retching.
From Lorraine at In 25 Words More or Less:
Mae “Deli” West: “Is that a [salama]banana in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?” (92)
From Radhika at RadhikasReflections:
Constantly trying to please her cynical husband and his unending demands, left her confused about her own identity.
From Francine at Woman Walks Dog:
That wild Timelord Dr Who ! He’s been visiting GModGroogFood Galaxy again and he’s dumped his leftover snacks in an earth park. Shall we try some?
From Soul Connection at Through My Heart’s Web:
Cruelty at par…How could they peel off my skin and use it to cover this weird look alike of mine.I am all NAKED.EAT ME or COVER ME Please.
From Peter at Peter’s Ponderings:
Deirdrie was surprised, and more than a little disappointed, that Charles had misinterpreted her suggestion of a game of hide the sausage!
and my take starting us off:
“Banangers?!” Emily screeched, “You’re insane Tom!”
“But it’s brilliant Em. GMO meat trees will be the new superfood.”
“I think I’ll pass!”
Well well! A very creative bunch you are! I admit, last week’s photo was a bit bananas! Thanks for giving it a go.
Decided to mellow it out this week. Found this great photo at Pexels.com by photographer, Tyler Hendy. First official day of summer comes along this week. Nothing like sitting outside at your favorite place enjoying the long nights over a coffee or tea or something a bit more spirited. 😊 Anyhoo, hope you’ll tell me a story about this scene. Romance, intrigue, mystery, drama, or thriller? Oh my! The possibilities are endless! Have fun!
