Microfiction Monday - Growing Up

Here's my take on this week's Microfiction Monday Pic.




Ida sighed as her father took her hand.

I know I mentioned I enjoy moonlit walks along the beach but I didn’t expect YOU to take me.


Have a great week all.
Love KB

Your wonderful, over-protective dad spin has me thinking of comedian Bill Engvall's line: ""Boy, look at me. You see that little girl right there? She's my only little girl, man. She's my life. So if you have any thoughts about hugging, or kissing, you remember these words: I've got no problem going back to prison."

Aawwww.. ROFL!!
I'd do anything in the world for one more walk with my Daddy -- and as for the men in my life, pffft!

It took way too long to learn that.

(and while reading this I loved that I had a grandmother named Ida -- really!)

Love the twist in your micro! Kinda cute! And Sparkle's comment added more chuckles!

Diane said...

Some day Ida..... someday! :O)

That would be a bit of a letdown, wouldn't it? I know I'd think so. ;)

I had a grandmother named "Ida" too! I hope someday her father lets her walk the beach with her beau instead of him...
Have a great week. Cheers!

Peggy said...

I would have love to be able to take a walk with my Father again.
Made me smile!

SouthLakesMom said...

She signed (as in asl)? or sighed...either way, this is sweet and lovely!

KB said...

Sparkle - you made me chuckle.

susan - you do? Spooky.

GT - tried to think of a different take than my usual.

Diane - if she can ditch Dad, hehe.

Gospel - I agree

Sylvia - used to be a popular name...I think it's beautiful.

Peggy - glad I brought a smile to your face.

KB said...

SL - thanks for pointing that out...I have changed it to sighed :)

A Father's love for his Daughter, I wonder if it is the Night before he walks her down the aisle and he is Giving his Ida some Fatherly Advice.

KB said...

That would make a nice story too.

Ms.Daisy said...

KB,
Awww! I like that her father walked with her! I wish I could walk with my Dad again. Nice one!

LOL! Poor Ida, but you know, someday she might come to treasure those walks with her father.

KB said...

Thanks you two. As we get older we appreciate those walks with our folks but I envisioned Ida as still in her youth.

It's sweet to think of her daddy taking care of her :)

Good ol' Dad to the rescue.
Problem, she didn't need rescuing yet.
Nice take on the picture, K.B. :)
