Twittering Tales

Kat Myrman over at Like Mercury Colliding has started a wonderful challenge for us this week. You take her photo prompt and write a story inspired by it in 140 characters or less. You know I can’t resist micro fiction so here is my attempt at this week’s prompt:



“What is it?”
“I don’t know”
“Poke it”
“I did”
“And nothing”
“Can we eat it?”
“It’s blue. No food is blue. Don’t touch it….Bob?”


“Stay very still. It might not see us.”
“It’s looking at me.”
“Is the beast from Blefuscu?”
“I know not, pass me an egg and we shall test it.”

    #1 makes me laugh. We have two dogs and my wife and I often talk in “their” voices.
