Microfiction Muse #14

This is my first time to take part in a new microfiction blogpost.

(*Note: I realized my wording was kind of misleading here. I've written microfiction before, but just not on Diane's blog. It was on Stony River's Microfiction Mondays, and those have been discontinued for quite some time. So, I was so happy to discover Diane's!)

Microfiction means the shortest of short stories. Think Aesop’s fables, comic strips, or even jokes: complete stories that can be told in under a minute. 

You are invited to write a story about a select picture in 140 characters or less (including spaces and punctuation).

 It is hosted by Diane Estrella. Please stop by her blog if you'd like to participate, too.


Here is my take on the photo:

"You are getting sleepy. Very, very sleepy.  You will obey my every command. Got that, mister?"

** Also welcome to my newest follower: Marsha. I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see! Thank you!
