microfiction Monday - Joke's On You

Susan’s Picture:


My Story:

Taro fell in surprise when 
he grasped the handle of his sword 
& pulled out a paper umbrella. 
His pals were so funny it was going to kill him.


Write a story in 140 characters
using the picture Susan provides as inspiration.




A semi-coherent story written in allotments of one hundred words.
An attempt to write a scene a day without too much stress.

Merry Meet and Blessed Be
