Microfiction Monday #45

Another Monday, another microfiction. It's Susan at Stony River's weekly challenge: one image, one response in 140 characters or less.

Here is this week's image:


And here is my response:

In recent years, he had not been pulling his weight. Although now that wouldn't have amounted to much.

He was, very much, the silent partner.

He looks like a good silent partner. He shouldn't need to take much out of the business.

Too funny Dave. Silent partner...no kidding. A creepy partner too, eh?

SouthLakesMom said...

As long as he is the silent partner with lots of $$ he's welcome to stay, right?

Pat said...

I really did laugh at this one! Hilarious.

Michael G-G said...

In some respects, silence is golden. Good one, Dave!

He must have been a Silent Partner for awhile. Nice one Dave.

LOL this is just too funny. I hope the silent partner had bucks but if he doesn't amount to much...hmmm LOL Very well done. Have a great week ahead :)

I'm guessing most of us would like one of those...with a healthy wallet. :)

Nicely done!

I wonder if he did speak up at one point...?
