Succinctly Yours - On the Fly

Many thanks to at Grandma's Goulash for running the Monday Microfiction Meme. Grandma posts a photo and invites us to write a caption or story in either under 140 characters (tweet-length) or under 140 words. As an extra challenge we are given a word to insinuate into our offering.

Todays word: Expedient

Today's inspiration:

Tom's venture into fly-on-the-wall peeping failed 
to take account of the corresponding 
reduction in brain power.


Jane's 1960 copy of  the first spiderman comic
was the most expedient, but how was
Peter going to explain the messy cover?


"Pretty Fly!" exclaimed Joyce,
adjusting her pince-nez
"Why, thank you," replied Reggie,
smoothing down his remaining hair.


  1. Three good MFs. Poor Jane - Peter's going to have to come up with a really good excuse!

  2. Good ones, Dominic! ~~ My favorite is the first one. Actually, 1,2,3, in that order.
    I had to look up an aranea. That was a good choice! Thank you,

  3. Your last one is BRILLIANT!! Yay!!!!! Thanks for making me laugh just before bedtime! take care

  4. These are great! The first one, especially, cracked me up. . .what a thing to learn after the fact! LOL

  5. Three good ones, Dominic...I chuckled the most at the first one, second most at the second one. Excellent...Thanks for the laughs!

  6. LOL! These have me re-reading them, they all seem so profound. :O)

  7. Three excellent responses and they each raised a giggle - thank you:-)

  8. I gotta get me a Spiderman comic, obviously it is the best weapon in the war on flies! LOL

  9. OMG. I loved them all but the first one was genius!
