Microfiction Monday: The Tangled Tango

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.

    Great micro this week. Cheers!

  4. The last dance lessons I had when I was wearing tenny shoes. I did have the head dance teacher help me some. She was a very tiny, light on her feet, thing from Russia.
