Microfiction Monday: Mixed Signals

Welcome to Microfiction Monday, at Stony River: a writing life, where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.[Hate counting letters and spaces? Try Design 215's character counter, which will count for you as you type. Microsoft Word will count for you too, of course, as part of its word count feature under the 'Review' tab.] Here's this week's picture, and my story to go with it.



"I thumb my nose at you, dreadful denizen of the billowing deep."

Oh wait. Wasn't that the secret hand signal for "more water, please?"


(Happy Labor Day!)

  12. This is why they teach sign language as a real language in schools now. It can be very bad if you get it wrong!
