Quibbling or Nibbling?

Sunday, June 22, 2014

She signed up on ten matchmaking sights
With never a nibble
And now she was anxious to meet her match
Even if he looked like dribble



Never anything more than a nibble
But he had no time to quibble
He'd catch a ride back into town
Where some real fish could be found



She took a big bite
Then just a nibble
It was time to move on
Not time to quibble
Then there he stood
Just outside her window...


Grandma offers a weekly micro-fiction challenge called succinctly yours. She provides the photo and we provide our imagination in writing a short story of 140 characters or words or less. Our bonus word is "nibble". How low can you go?

I 'think' I like your # 1 the best. Poor thing, she sounded desperate. I liked all your bites, nibbles, dribbles, and quibbles.
Smile :)

Still giggling about that lurking dribble who answered the ad. I don't think I'd be renewing that contract.

It's always interesting your poems. I think I like the first one the best here. Hope you are doing well- just stopping in to say Hi!
