Succinctly Yours - Microfiction on a Monday


I've decided to take part in a microfiction challenge.
It's happening over at Grandma's Goulash and you can write either 140 characters or 140 words, based on a photo provided by Grandma. You also have the option to include a Word of the Week. So this week's word is CATER and this is the photo:  (Thanks to Akelamalu for tracking this down!)
Please don’t sit in Charlie’s armchair. We cater for everyone’s wishes here and he hates sharing.

Of course he’s been dead five years.

ROFL. Not at Charlie's sad fate, of course.

I'm delighted you found your way to Succinctly Yours and hope we'll be seeing you again next week.

Clever take on this photo. Now if only we could teach our fat orange cat to respect our sitting places we'd be all set. ~ Calico Contemplations

That's a long time mourning! I wonder what else Charlie hated sharing?

Dianne said...

just because he's dead doesn't mean it's not still his favorite chair :)

Pat said...

Hilarious!! Those pesky ghosts can be so selfish!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Ha! Men and their fave kick-back chairs. You've hit it spot on. :)

YIKES! Is Charlie prone to sudden appearances similar to Casper, but not that friendly, if you sit in his chair? Lol! Great take!

Good old Charlie made a real impression in his world, and afterworld, didn't he...L0L? Terrific take on the prompt...:)

ROFL. You can sit anywhere you like but not on that chair!

Debora said...

You reminded me of my late mother's chair...she used to hide money in the cushions! Your post was so clever!
