Microfiction Monday #49 & #3

Same old drill as usual. Here's the picture:


And here's my response:

It was going to be a long walk.

When she asked him to the Sadie Hawkins Dance, she hadn't thought about what to do if he actually said yes.

And from the Microfiction Monday archives, here's number three:


And here's my response:

She looked at her son.

She thought of his potential.

She was amazed by everything he did.

She just wished he wasn't quite so bloody blue.

In the first micro, love how you captured the tensions in tentative romance! And the second micro wonderfully creates a story from the colour tones of the image!

Well, it does look promising: he's saving his shoes for the rug cutting! (Let the good times roll, eh?!)

Two great interpretations! :O)

I never had the courage to ask anyone out to the Sadie Hawkins dance! They do look a bit silent here --

You made me laugh with the second one.
Thanks!

I guess that makes us realize that we'd better be 'careful what we wish for'....LOL
Have a great week. Cheers!

Peggy said...

Two great takes tonight.
Have not heard about Sadie Hawkins Day in a very long time.! Nice smile!

KB said...

Very cute. I bet she would have worn different shoes too for the long walk.

SouthLakesMom said...

Ah yes, the old "what will you do with it if you actually get what you want" dilemma! She looks like a woman who can figure it out though!

She didn't know what she'd do if he said yes. Looking at the picture she seems to be leading him somewhere.

Maybe with the second one, someone should be ringing up for some help.,

Those first moments of a first date are awkward, aren't they?

erik said...

I guess neither of them have been on dates before, eh?

MorningAJ said...

Not sure what's more uncomfortable - walking barefoot or tackling those heels!

Ellie said...

LOL. How far did they have to walk and who is Sadie Hawkins? A brilliant microfiction.

Have a lovely week x

David said...

First dates can be tough. This is the perfect story to fit the picture.

Dave said...

I don't know who Sadie Hawkins was but she must have been a precocious young lady because the point of the dance named after her is that the girls are required to ask the boys. It's like feminism with foxtrots.

As with everything I know about American culture, I learned it from TV, an episode of Buffy featured ghosts at a Sadie Hawkins dance, so apologies if I've gotten it wrong.

Your Sadie Hawkins take is very cute! I like it. The second one made me laugh.

Sadie Hawkins is not for the faint of heart! Nice one, Dave--and have a great week.

Really cute. I'm sure she'll think of something :)

Thanks again for reading
