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!
When his agent said he’d gotten him a starring role in Grease, Eddy thought he meant the movie, not a gas station ad.

Very clever! This is such a cute take on that photo. Love it!
Kay — thanks. I live to entertain!
Yeah, but Eddy’s smiling ’cause he just figured out that, most of the time, you make more money in advertising than in “art” anyway. Am I right or …?
I don’t know, love. Neither does Eddy. This was his first gig. I think he’s smiling because a pay check is a pay check.
clever one – was that a tear I saw?
no just a smudge
have a gr8 week
Moondustwriter – -thanks for stopping by!
Ahh, so that’s why his smile looks a bit forced.
Erik — indeed.
Ah, the twists and turns of fame.
Tony — is is a treacherous climb.
And now I’ve remembered to change my url 🙂
Tony — is that like changing your mind?
Cool! You and Eddy and I are on the same wave length! (Click HERE to see what I mean.)
SparkleFarkle — I loved your story! I’m still grinning!
Wow! You and Marina were on the same wave length this week. Both different but eerily similar. Loved the take…very clever my dear Quilly!
Polly — it seems several of us immediately thought greased lightening.
I had a similar thought this fine MicroFiction. Great minds and all….. :O)
Diane — indeed — and even though they are all a bit the same, they’re all a bit different, too, which really makes it fun.
Clever. 🙂 And the symbol on the box in his hand brings to mind the old jingle, “Trust your car to the man who wears the star….”
Barbara — I kept singing that, but I couldn’t fit it into 140 characters and still have a story.
Eddie should have read the fine print in the contract better. Or get himself a new agent.
Bill — have you never been excited and impractical for even a moment?
Hardy har har har!!! 🙂 🙂 Great Quilly!
Now perhaps we could get a minor role in that scene??
p.s. This is a diversion from taxing my brain on Punny Monday!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Jim — you needed diverting from Punny Monday!
Love it, Quilly! I’ll bet Eddie can sing and dance–a plus for someone doing a commercial. Next gig could be in Hollywood.
Now I’m going to go check out Punny Monday.
Pat — maybe Eddie will get to be a pirate in the Pirates of Penzance?
Martyr Mom — thanks.
LOL the movie sprang to my mind too! I like yours! 🙂
Akelamalu — thanks!
Still a paying gig-LOL!
Susan — money is money! I’m glad you read the comments. They are often better than my posts.
Clever & witty, what a combo.
Melissa — I am glad you enjoyed it!
I would have made the same mistake.
Nice twist on thie weeks picture!
Have a great 2011.
Peggy — did you want the part of Sandy, or Rizzo?
Let’s hope there are bigger things to come for Eddy :O)
Madeleine — bigger paychecks, anyway!
Oh the poor guy! Bravo for making the smile *seem* genuine LOL
Susan — he’s an actor!
I never thought of the movie
Dianne — thanks
Ah, the unkindest cut of all! LOL Very funny, and a cute take on the pic. Great job.
Lisa — disallusione4mnt is a bummer!
Nice one, Qilly. I actually played this week.
Monkey Man — I’ll swing by as soon as I can!
please insert this ‘u’ into the proper space in my comment above.
Monkkey Man — I am so glad you didn’t say “shove”.
ROFL! Now that was clever!
Granny sue — thanks!
poor Eddy, who wouldn’t want to be in Grease at least he still has a job, right?
Maria — that was exactly his take once he got over the disappointment! 😉
hahaha, I love it!
Tough luck, Eddy! You’ve got to start somewhere. Don’t worry, bid your time. Afterall the guy who got the role, Travolta didn’t stay on long. He preferred to be a pilot, piloting his own plane!
Hank – – poor Eddy thought “over-night sensations” really happened over night!
Some responses make me think ‘Why didn’t I think of that!’ Yours is one.
Rinkly Rimes — I feel that way quite often myself!
quiily, I was toying with the idea of the “Grease” play/movie too, but just couldn’t make it work. Glad you did!
Happy New Year to you. Hope it’s a great one.
MGG — I saw someone else make something work that I was playing with but couldn’t get around. Inspiration can be fickle.
Love this point of view!! Unique take on this pic!
Pooch — actually, it wasn’t all that unique. several other people came up with a Grease the movie theme as well.
