Stony River - Microfiction Monday #46

This weeks picture prompt from
Microfiction Monday

at Stony River
The task: a tweetable 140 characters or fewer inspired by the picture below...

I used to live in Coolville, lots of sightseeing tours as all the houses had false facades, it is beautiful there, almost like a film set...

(exactly 140 characters)

Coolsville sounds like my kind of place: facade houses make for less house work! Are there fascadey people 'living' there as well? Less laundry, you know.

Interesting twist that Coolville is almost like a film set! Creative!

Capturing a thought in time. Clever take on the picture.

Facade has a double meaning...

fa•cade
–noun

1. Architecture.

A: the front of a building, esp. an imposing or decorative one.

B: any side of a building facing a public way or space and finished accordingly.

2. a superficial appearance or illusion of something.


Sounds like Coolville itself is a faceade. Nice Microfiction.

Oh I felt the deeper message here
and yes, it is so often true
fake fake fake to be cool

Suz said...

Oh...and glad you jumped in..I saw the name and said could it be? and it was!

SouthLakesMom said...

When I think of facades I think of the town they built in Blazing Saddles...ha ha ha ha ha

Good job!

hope said...

Sounds like the town fits the name. :)

Pat said...

Wow, this is great--so many underlying meanings--beauty and sophisication being only skin deep with some people--usually due to insecurity.
