The Frog

"Jack should have plucked that bunch of red roses," Niel reckons "instead of that frog he grabbed from the pond. Now he got no Valentine."

This is a MICROFICTION MONDAY post hosted by Susan at Stony River - a 140 (or less) letters/characters long to hone or challenge my creative and imaginary side.

Poor Jack.

Nicely written, and so apt for Valentine's Day. Have a lovely day.:)

Hm. What does that old adage say? "When one door closes, another opens"? Perhaps Jack should kiss the frog and see what comes of it. LoL!--> CLICK!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Diane said...

Yeah.... not the best choice there.... :O)

He should have stuck to the tried and true. Flowers beats frogs, hands down!
Good take on the pic !

Maybe if he kisses the frog it will turn into a princess--worked in other stories! Fun one this week. Cheers~

Maybe Jack just needs to find the right girl. A zoologist might appreciate his choice. LOL Well done!

Melanie Sherman said...

He probably thought she'd find the frog "riveting". (How DID you think of the frog thing? I laughed out loud)

That's an awesome interpretation of the photo, Ruthi!

Cute, Ruthi, I was disappointed that I did not have time to participate last night, but you did well enough for both of us. :-)

Jim said...

Aw, Ruthi, it seems his girl didn't like frogs. But how was he to know?
Very clever and funny you are!
