Captain Jack Awakens

Before we get to Micro-Fiction Monday I want to spread the word about a worthy project. If you go to  This Link  you can vote to help a handicapped accessible playground be built. It's part of a challenge sponsored by Pepsi. If the link doesn't take you directly to Sunshine Playground in Western Ohio then please just do a search and vote.

You will need to sign in but it takes a second and it's free. Then you can vote every day.

Thanks to Scott at Sober Nuggets a blogger I just met for making me aware of this.

Now on to Micro-Fiction Monday and my 133 character story nugget inspired by this photo ...


As the whiskey wore off Captain Jack realized he’d been steering a head stone all night. He hoped he hadn’t disturbed the neighbors.

I'm still laughing. I can see that happening so easily. Nicely done!

I gave it a go for the first time: Irony.

I voted. 14th is doable to stay in the game. $250K is a tough category. Need lots of support to reach those top 2 spots.

Matt-Man said...

Ha. Funny. I voted for my fellow Ohioans. Cheers Di!!

SouthLakesMom said...

LOL! The Captain Jack I recall wouldn't have cared whether the neighbors were disturbed!

Captain Jack must have had a wild and fun weekend. To bad he can't remember it.

He must have been four sheets to the wind, trying to steer that ship? LOL :)

This was great-totally unexpected and certainly creative!

Grayquill said...

Good story - I think Captin Jack is safe as I am pretty sure the neighbors are all dead to disturbances.

Mike said...

Are you sure that was Capitan Jack? It might have been Matt-Man.

Hilary said...

That's too funny. Clever you. :)

Linda said...

Now there's an easy visual to conjure up! And as for the neighbors, you can't wake the dead, can you?

ilanadavita said...

Nice meme; great photo!

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

Hey Chica....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

HermanTurnip said...

It wasn't the fact that Frank was chained to a tombstone that worried him. It was the fact that the tombstone had his name on it that he found most disconcerting.

slommler said...

Ha!! Now that was funny!!!
Congrats on your POTW

Cricket said...

Ah, yes: "as the whiskey wore off...." Many's the story that could begin that way. Kind of the drunk's version of "it was a dark and stormy night."

Congratulations on your potw.
