Micro fiction Monday!

Microfiction Monday is a challenge where Susan, at Stony River provides a picture and we have only 140 characters to come up with a story. 

This Monday's image:

‘There’s a hole in my bucket’, dear Liza did call,
When Henry replied with a foolish ‘then fix it’,
Henry didn't see the bucket coming at all!

A play on the old nursery rhyme, hope you enjoyed it!

  7. Oh, I used to sing that endlessly when we traveled in the car. Very annoying song after the 15th iteration, I think...

    but this is NOT annoying and is quite funny!
