Manny Makes A Decision

I thought I'd join Micro-Fiction Monday
The idea is to post a very short (140 characters or less) story that suits the picture.


It was on his third grade class trip to the art museum that Manny made his decision.
He would leave Brooklyn to become a cactus tamer.

Wild cacti can never be tamed. Somebody should tell Manny.

Good for Manny, glad he knows what he wants to do. Hope someone back home warned him about all the Critters that inhabit the Desert.

Linda Reeder said...

Oh, yes. I want you to do this meme. You make me laugh and I don't have to read very much! :-)

hahahaha a cactus tamer, too too funny.

fermicat said...

Nice job with the tweet story. You didn't have to mangle the English language or anything. Too bad politicians can't follow your excellent example.

Linda said...

But just how exactly does one "tame" a cactus? Very nicely done!

Au and Target said...

Hey that's fun!

jabblog said...

Well done. Microfiction Monday is a texters dream.
Never learned brevity- even this comment is killing my verbose nature.

Nessa said...

Live the dream, Manny. live the dream. Fun.

Lisa (Mountain Photog) said...

Hope all is well with you and those gorgeous kitties of yours.

Hi Dianne ~~ Here is a late WELCOME TO MICRO-FICTION!!
I saw the link last week but didn't check it out. Just didn't think it would be you. (I am sorry, you know that you are on my _____ (very good) list.

I like your story. Third graders make a lot of very important life decissions don't they.
I wanted to be a garbage truck driver. I did get to have a cousin (he died last year) who was the bulldozer man at a landfill.

Great way to start a career! Love your idea to go back to third grade for the impetus.
