Wondering what catastrophic event is soon to happen...

Nothing like a chat atop a quaint bridge to make you want to eavesdrop. :>

Hope you have a fantastic week, Dave!

Interesting stuff that you write, Dave. I didn't realize trolls were very good conversationalists :o)

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Great microfiction. He obviously has some diabolical plans brewing.

Poor troll. So misunderstood! Very creative take on that pic.
