Up (Microfiction Monday #69)

“Dude! Look! Up in the sky!”

“Its … aw, c’mon, dude. We just did that! An’ it ain’t like it’s the first time it’s been done since 1952, neither.”

Jeez, dude. Give a dude a break, willya …”

“Arm, leg, or head?”

“Go ahead, dude, make my day. While y’still can, maybe y’kin tell me what you’d make of this picture of Susan’s.”

“It is kinda directional, ain’t it?”

“Yeah. Not too hard to get the point. Or ‘points’, as it were. Power o’ positive thinkin’?”

“Power o’ positive profitin’.”


“Betcha it’s like this, dude.”

Having sold the town on his “Looking Up” theme, Wilson cannily set up his chiropractor’s office right next to the redesigned village square.

“Cannily? Cannily?! That what you drink outa when y’can’t get it on tap?

“No, dude, but y’kin dance to it.”


“Dude, don’t start gettin’ all philosophical on me, ‘kay?”

    How many characters do you think an entrant should be allowed so that the reader has some hope of understanding the almost 140 or so which constitute his actual post?

    Everyone can benefit when things are looking up! LOL

  7. Melanie Sherman says:

    Fun story and I think the chiropractor was very wise.
