Microfiction Monday: Gia'Sou (The Greek "Cheers")

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's the world's best meme, coming to you from Susan at Stony River. One of the highlights of a dangerous writer's week. Enjoy.

Advertize the real Greece? Spiros was delighted. So what was with the silly star and hat instead of a dish of Souvlaki and a glass of ouzo?

And a big "cheers" to all of you for 2011. Thanks in advance for your comments. I'm looking forward to visiting as many as possible in return.

  1. Why, yes, what are they thinking???? Everyone knows souvlaki and ouzo belong to Grease/Greece! So what's with the silly spelling! I love it, Michael! Hope you've had a lovely holiday and that your new year is off to a great start!

  12. Ha - I'm with him. Souvlaki and ouzo would be much more appetizing. Creative story!

  14. I could have sworn I left a comment here! Maybe the mention of Souvlaki distracted me. Just reading the word makes my mouth water. Both Spiros and my Eddy both got a shock when they discovered what they were really promoting!

  15. Sigh. One of these days I will learn to proof read before hitting "enter".
