Every week (what a trooper!), Lyn Thorne Alder posts a writing prompt using an idiom, encouraging each person to write and post a micro fiction of a specific length (the challenge). She calls it “Thimbleful Thursday“. Go and check it out: https://thimblefulthursday.wordpress.com/2021/01/21/thimbleful-thursday-challenge-55/
I see the challenge “sideways”, seeing the idiom as a rebus-like puzzle long before a story comes to mind. Here, therefore, is the way I see it. Go and do your own writing and leave the comment at Lyn’s Site, sharing what you have written.
