Microfiction has been moved to my other blog, Jim's Little Blog

We should have gotten old Poseidon's blessings. Afraid it's too late now.

Call his cell?

Ten minutes, huh? Fine. Thank you. Goodbye.

Sailors prayed to Poseidon for a safe voyage, sometimes drowning horses as a sacrifice (Wikipedia).

Check over at Susan's blog, Stony River, for more microfiction Monday! They should read quickly because our requirement is 140 characters or less.
You might like to try this. It's fast, easy, and fun.

ROFL seems like Poseidon can't get a break today. Hmm, electricity and water.. he might not be too keen on coming to you guys' rescue anytime soon LOL

Poseidon has a cell phone?! What's his number? We're headed for Lime Kiln Park tomorrow and I'd really like to see some whales!

Poseidon's not going to forgive easily - a lesson to us all not to treat others disrepectfully ;-)
