Microfiction Monday #47 & #1

It's monday again. Susan provides an image and invites responses of 140 characters or less. Here is this week's image:


And here is my response:

He waved.

Unfortunately the sea waved back.

I discovered Microfiction Monday via Ellie Garratt's blog, but came late to the party so I've decided to start at the beginning and try to get caught up.

Here is the picture that accompanied Susan's first ever Microfiction Monday:


And here is my attempt:

As far as getaway cars were concerned, it was more conspicuous than he would've liked.

His heart sank. They were as good as caught.

I guess one should be aware of who they are waving too. Both your entries are wonderful. I didn't start with Susan's MfM until about the third or fourth week.

Welcome to Microfiction Monday! this is my second week here (:

Both good ones. Here's my 140. Sorry for the delay but dealing with drama of son having to dash across Italy to catch his flight. Hope your week goes better then his!
