Grease Lightning Musical Microfiction

Susan from Stony River sets a weekly
Challenge Picture each Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.

Antonio didn’t need to fix a smile to his face.
"It does what it says on the tin" he said to camera "Makes you go like grease lightning" (137 characters with spaces).

Two bloghops on the same day:

  16. Okay, well that's different. Congrats on your position in our Spotlight dance at "Monday's Music Moves Me". You have my name under someone else's button though. I don't think they're going to like it. My button is quite different. Thanks for playing along. I hope you're having tons of fun! Have a great day! Congrats on 200! Woo Hoo!

  18. That was a very creative way to combine the Microfiction meme (funny caption) with Monday's Music (great song)! I enjoyed the video as well - haven't seen Grease in a long time, but it is a classic.

  28. I had a heck of a time getting your blog to scroll and now, with grim determination I have finally reached the comment box -- and have absolutely know idea what it was I planned to say. I can't even remember what you wrote!

    I do remember being amused ....

  29. i had not heard about Pete Postlethwaite's passing (forgive the alliteration). Sad. Great music picks tho!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm not buying it, Antonio. (He looks like he sells snake oil!)

    Sad to hear of Pete Postlethwaite's death. Thanks for the tribute.

    Happy New Year to you. Hope it's a great one.

  31. Ol' Antonio has a killer smile, doesn't he? However, I'm thinking the grease would fit in the category of snake oil!

    :)
