Susan from Stony River, welcomes us to Microfiction Monday,
where a picture paints just 140 characters.
If you’d like to join us, stop by Susan’s, pick up the picture prompt,
compose your story in 140 character (or less), post it,
and sign in at Susan’s place, then commence in the sharing!
Jared’s last thought before he drowned was that perhaps his psychiatrist was right and he really wasn’t Poseidon, god of the sea.

Quite a time to find out 🙂
Tony — yes, all that money wasted on doctor’s bills …..
That’s a sad thing to realize. Of course, that makes him free of any blood relation to the nereids. Woo-hoo!
Doug — I don’t think the gods really worried about such things, did they?
Poor Jared, He needs to find a New Role Model. Good thing he wasn’t thinking he was Captain of the Titanic.
My is set to Post for later today.
Bill, either way, he’s dead ….
Jared be in the Grip of Davy Jones’s Locker. Abandon hope for getting ye bill paid, Dr. Psyche.
Karen — this is my favorite comment so far. I really did LOL.
Q. What a coincidence! I really did LOL too (several times).
Well done. Maybe he should have thought Zeus perhaps. Have a great Sumday.
Thom, Zeus was even less reliable than Poseidon.
Ooops! That would be rather disappointing.
Kay — indeed, but at least he didn’t have to live with his mistake …..
Was he an emperor of Rome?
Nessa — Jared or Poseidon? 😉
What an awful time to realize that! Poor guy.
Barbara – -you know, sometimes “better late than never” really isn’t any comfort.
Rude awakening before the final sleep!
Linda — good-bye cruel world!
Excellent my friend. I am put to shame !
Thanks so much for kind thoughts for me . 🙂
Peggy — your story was great, too, but I know how you feel. I am always amazed and dazzled by what everyone else came up with.
I chuckled. Love it.
Michael — I’m pleased to meet another black humor fan.
I liked this! Nice take on the picture. 🙂
Susannah — thank you.
Hilarious–Thanks for the laugh, Quilly!
Pat — I am glad my little story pleased you.
what a horrible way to find out the truth about your bloodline. hopefully he accepted the truth before he died :/
Sophie — one wonders if he had time ….
Yup, that’s one hard lesson to find out! :O)
Diane — he should have tested his theory in shallow water!
Having always had a hard head, I do so relate! What a great take for the day, Qullly!
Hope your weekend is going well!
Sylvia — hmmm, that leaves me wondering — which minor deity do you think you are? 😉
LOL. I love your take on this week’s picture. The poor guy–let’s hope he hadn’t paid his psychologist’s bill yet!
Sylvia — it seems everyone wants to starve the psychiatrist’s kids to get even!
http://www.patandjerry.com/2010/09/microfiction-monday-18-sos.html is my story for this week. Sorry- I had left last weeks in the box for “Website.”
Pat — thanks! I’d already found you!
I laughed outloud. I actually snortted. Very funny.
p.s. I’m a psychotherapist.
Fay — a little work humor for you then — glad you enjoyed it.
Good one, Quilly. I am glad you didn’t erase it. My boater invoked a little help from Poseidon also. [Great minds here? :)]
Jim — perhaps, but your Poseidon was actually “on call”.
He might have fared better AND saved a lot of money AND maybe even his life if he had found a 12 step program instead. Who knows? Anything is possible!
My first try at a Micro-Fiction Monday is up.
One Prayer Girl — your first entry in MFM was fab! And a 12 step program might have helped, at least he’d have had a sponsor to warn him away from the water!
TCU — thanks.
Not the best time to find out he’s been living a fantasy! LOL. A witty story to start Monday.
Have a great week x
Ellie — Jared would have been much better off testing his “godliness” in shallow water.
Very witty. I like it very much.
If you hop over to mine at http://scribbleandedit.blogspot.com you’ll see my second attempt at this genre.
Madeline — thank you.
Oh, no! it’s so sad when people come on the truth so late. Great take on the photo.
Rosidah — you have the kindest, softest heart, and are a truly nice person.
Hehe. The psychiatrist was right AGAIN!
EG — darn!
Too bad Jack Handey counldn’t have had a few words with Jared before he got in the boat: “I think a mistake a lot of us make is thinking the state-appointed psychiatrist is our ‘friend.'” –Jack Handey
SparkleFarkl — judging by your quote the meeting would have made no difference. Jared had already decided not to listen to the psychiatrist.
This made me guffaw!
jabblog — then I did my job!
Hope — that’s why so many people try to avoid it.
what a disillusionment!
dark humour at its best 🙂
Polona — it is one of my better talents.
This is one of my favorites today! Terrific job!
Thanks, September Mom! There were some great stories out there. I am honored to rank among the best.
What a revelation for the poor man — unless it’s only by drowning that he *becomes* Poseidon’s next incarnation —
hey, there must always be hope LOL
Susan Pollyanna. I never would have thunked it. LOL! (You’ve watched Pirates of the Caribbean too many times.)
