The Sunday 160


Yes, it's true, today is Saturday, so why the title "The Sunday 160". Well, it just helps me to commit. If I say it here then I have to make it happen.


Now I suppose you want to know what "The Sunday 160" is? It's a spin off of a 55 word blog challenge that Pheromonegirl introduced me to. The idea struck me as I was sending a text which, as most of us know, allows only 160 characters, so I am applying the same basic rules in the Flash Fiction Friday 55 blog introduced to her by a blogger named G-man.
Da Rules
  • The Sunday 160 only uses 160 characters (including spaces)
  • Keep on schedule - post as early at 7:30 PM the Saturday before
  • Let me know you have posted via a comment on my site
  • Visit at least one other Sunday 160


Should be fun. Could be stupid. One thing is certain - I won't use text abbreviations. That would just be wrong. A fella needs a challenge.

There is no better way to show the Monkey Man just how much I dig his blog than listening to tunes while I chomp out a 160. If gives me lots of satisfaction..

Yesterday I spent an hour trying to get exactly 160...and gave up. How DO you do it? I have not a clue, but it must not be THAT difficult.

At least, I slept well--counting letters and spaces all night in my dreaming.

You are talented! I would stress over this, I just know it. BTW, I DID know that those bog people were murdered but I thought that might make people get scared away from my BUSINESS, buddy! I added an addendum to my blog and linked back to you just now...

My sister found a lump in her breast, I've dedicated my Sunday's 160 for her and all women.

She is being treated and all is well.
