It's The Little Things

Grandma's Goulash (isn't that a great name) is hosting a new Microfiction project.

140 characters or less to describe the photo plus use the word of the week (in bold) if you wish.


 
As she prepared for her 90th birthday party Sadie thought that if they wanted to cater to her they should have turned the chair around.

Eh, tell the old lady to turn her own chair around. ;-)

Excellent use of both the word of the day and in 140 characters or less, and funny to boot!


Have a great week, Dianne. It's fun to be back microfictioning again, n'est-ce pas?

Of course the view is the most important part.

Love your take on the pic Dianne.

Now that wasn't nice of them. Enjoyed that.

Great take on the pic of the day as always, Dianne! I'm hoping to join in again once I get moved -- just too much going on these days, but it'll be worth it!! Have a wonderful day!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Dianne, you ALWAYS blow me away with your cleverness!

Faaaaaabulous one, dear lady!

Happy Monday!

MorningAJ said...

Oh I'm right with you on this one. Who would turn their back on a view like that?

Daryl said...

Oh so clever!

It does seem she would be missing out on the best part of the room. ~ Calico Contemplations

I think I like Sadie! I wouldn't put it pass her to give voice to her displeasure as well!

Grandma's Goulash said...

Perhaps they suspect that Sadie likes the view better than the company. Nicely done!

Thanks so much for being a part of Succinctly Yours.

A Very Good One, My Dear...!
Great picture, too.

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

At 90, the old dear ought to be able to sit where she likes and in whatever direction suits her! Nice MF!

Mike said...

Hey Sadie, get your butt outa' my chair.

Reb said...

Oh, I'm with Sadie on that...turn the chair and admire that lovely view!

Tracy said...

Dianne,
you are so very smart and see things from a perspective that intrigues me...
enjoyed the visit!

Au and Target said...

Nice twist!

Linda Reeder said...

The first thing that came to mind as I studied the pic was, turn the chair around. Look at that view! Great minds think alike?

Lynette Killam said...

Ha...well said! I know Sadie will turn her own chair around to face the water while she ruminates on a life well-lived...:)

Hilary said...

Love it.. clever, clever you. :)

ds said...

Fabulous!

Anyes said...

Wise beyond her years ;-)

Linda said...

Katie is a wise woman, I'd have wanted the chair facing the other way myself!

♥~Judy~♥ said...

At least half way, so she can see them and the view. Great take!

Debora said...

Sadie may be old, be she's still got her wits about her. No sedate, boring parties for her!

maryt/theteach said...

Love this, Dianne! :)

ladyfi said...

Very charming! And so right - just look at that marvellous view!
