Wearing the orange handle [or] A sad tale of decaf –micro fiction

Stretching catlike, low moans escape as muscles release pent up tension.

Yoga as a substitute for sex is like ground acorns substituting for coffee beans; it kinda looks the same but lacks that certain something.

This is the best micro I've seen in as long as I can remember! I'm just dying laughing.

Karen from Mentor said...

So pleased to delight you. Especially on your birthday.

*looks gleeful*

Happy Birthday.
[hey...*looks around* where's my cupcake?]
:0)

Marisa Birns said...

Yes. Agreed. It lacks something. Pelvic tilt notwithstanding. You are so very good at saying EVERYTHING that needs to be said in microscope!

Cupcake? Remember the yellow truck here that sells cupcakes on the streets of DC. There's plenty to steal...um...buy.

Gracie said...

Too funny, and sad and true all at the same time.

Love it, Karen. I'm still chuckling. :)

I wrote the first two chapters of a novel titled: "Orgasmic Yoga" last summer but then the idea stopped talking to me.

I'll have to see if it wants to come back out and play because everybody who read the opening howled with laughter. Even the guys. But then their brains got scrambled by hormones, and they kinda lost the train of the story.

One of them told me if I could do a video of the idea he thought it would SWEEP the nation.

[I love 25 year olds. They're just so easy]

@Marisa and Gracie,
Thank you both for coming in to giggle at me and for saying such nice things.

This micro may turn out to be only funny to women; but man it tickled the heck out of me when I thought of it. If it turns out I have a 50% giggle rate today because of gender bias it's still worth it.

*hugs you both*

Laura Eno said...

50% is still better than 0%, although the other half might relate to the acorn/coffee part. *hands you a cupcake with super sprinkles on it*

Karen from Mentor said...

That's true Laura. Cuz if it ain't got that swing, it just don't mean a thing....

Disclaimer:
[I was of course chastely referring to caffeine]

*puts halo on, eats super sprinkled cupcake*

Monica Marier said...

Bwa-ha-ha! Very true. I love the orange handle reference. It counjours up all sorts of dive breakfast joints and those 2 carafes in the waitress's hand. One nearly empty...one nearly full.

Laurita said...

Hee hee. Unfortunately, it's that certain something that makes it worth the effort in the first place. Although, stretching catlike sounds really good.

Karen from Mentor said...

*nods head in total agreement with both of Laurita's statements*

Karen from Mentor said...

@ Monica

Thank you for that. You just made my afternoon.

*grins hugely*

Blogger had an issue, reproducing Helen's comment:

Helen Ginger said...
Very cute. With terrific images.

Karen from Mentor said...

Thanks Helen,
I'm all about the visuals.

Thanks for taking the time to stop in and comment.

Rougie said...

Ha! So very Ha!!!!! (And so very true....)

Karen from Mentor said...

Hey honeylamb, I was just thinking about you. Let me be the first to wish you a [slightly early] but [very happy] birthday.

*big smooches!*

Susana Marcelo said...

Love the comparison. The imagery is vibrant! =)

KjM said...

Oh, I smiled quite happily at this one - but then, anything "catlike" appeals to me.

Coffee? One can get quite addicted to coffee.

I do profess, however, to be quite clueless about the "pelvic tilt" mentioned by Marisa. But then, I know so little about...yoga.

A fun read, Karen.

Karen from Mentor said...

*gets out ten foot pole, doesn't touch Kevin's yoga comment with it...*




goes off giggling...

netta said...

The truth shines from every word. I'm so in touch with this.

I tried Yoga once. Had to call 911 to remove my leg from my....uh...nevermind. You don't need THAT picture. Heh.

Great job, Karen. I love your micro-fic! It's almost addicting as...yoga. ;)

ganymeder said...

This post combined with your last one (9 words to paint a picture) make me wonder... :D

Great job!

John Wiswell said...

Is your secret eating straight coffee beans, Karen?

Karen from Mentor said...

Yes John, with a nice chocolate coating.

Karen from Mentor said...

Wondering is good Cathy. It lubricates the mind so it can work on solving the important questions that make up the fabric of the universe like: Why do dryers eat socks?

Karen from Mentor said...

@ Susana,
I love the word vibrant. And it's funny how often it's used to describe coffee. I just saw a menu that described a particular coffee like this:

Wicked Wolf® Blend: Intense, vibrant flavor in a balanced cup with a superb finish.

If you take out a couple of those words you could be describing something completely different. [sex sells]

Thanks for stopping in.

@ netta,
Too late. Image embedded. But I think you meant "behind my".... as in "behind my neck"...


*Smooches netta, hands her some chocolate covered coffee beans*

I'm so late to this party, but I LOVE this. Had to tell you.
