Microfiction: True Love

Welcome to today's microfiction!  

Grandma's Goulash graciously hosts Succinctly Yours, the wonderful meme for those of us addicted to microfiction. The trick is to write a story in 140 characters or less using the photo below as inspiration. To add to the challenge is the word of the week, "honest."  My stories are below.


Is It True Love?
(138 characters)

Ed knew he was a slave to love when he gave up his usual meal at the Hog Heaven BBQ for a romantic dinner with Mae at the Sweetheart Café.

Is It True, Love?

Mia wanted to surprise Ty with his own man cave, but she made an honest error while decorating. “Not hearts!” he cried. “I said darts!”

Thanks for visiting! See you on Wednesday for the naked truth about . . . Shades.

Have a great week!


  1. Mia's first mistake was thinking she could turn her porch into a cave. :) (I really want that table and those chairs.)

  2. Enjoyed both, but I can identify with the last - I love darts.

  3. Oh, the dart thing is funny...a man unheard when so many times it is a man who doesn't hear! Nice job...

  4. His outcry struck her heart with a dart!

  5. You always crack me up, Lisa. I really and truly did laugh out loud at “Not hearts!” he cried. “I said darts!”

    I mean, really, what man wants a heart decor in his man cave?!

  6. Mae is determined to bring some romance into Ty's life methinks. LOL

  7. If she's the Mae who said, "Why don't you come on up and see me sometime...when I've got nothin' on but the radio,"
    Ed definitely will be "up" for the sacrifice!

  8. Darts and hearts, so easily confused! I hate it when that happens. Good stuff, Lisa!

  9. I liked them both, but the second one is my favourite! hearts/darts :)

  10. Ed may be my perfect match. I love BBQ. lol As for Mia, I hope that Ty remembers it's the thought that counts.

    I can always count on your microfictions for a big smile. Today was not exception.

  11. hahaha! I love love love that second one. You are so clever, Lisa!

  12. Clever AND Valentine's Day appropriate! You never cease to amaze.

  13. Hi Lisa ~~ I'm betting that true love is being expressed in both your micro-fiction stories.

    Men will give up a lot when the're in love. Ed is really being gracious. :)

    I feel sorry for Mia. I do hope that Ty will understand. :)

  14. Hi Lisa,

    How sweet.

    I love the hearts and darts story. It was right on target!


  15. I just gave you a Versatile blogger Award! Check my blog sweetie! xo

  16. Oh, the first one is so sweet and the second one is so funny! Happy Valentine's Day, my dear friend.

  17. Man cave! TOO funny, Lisa, I love it.
