Caption It! - writercize #173 #AtoZChallenge

What a great start to the A to Z Challenge! Thank you challenge participants for the visits and all the great comments. I am really glad to have the opportunity to share writercize with you and visit your blogs as well.

After a couple of long posts, we'll keep this one short and simple ... and fun. Sometimes when the writing just refuses to come, a photo can wriggle it loose.

While a photo may be worth a thousand words, its caption is considerably shorter. Use humor or journalism to tell us what is happening.
writercize: Write a caption for the following photo.

Have fun with it! Leave your caption as a comment below, and be sure to include your link so that I can come visit you too.

Click "read more" for writercizer sample response. (And while captions are not my forte', particularly humorous ones, it's good to keep on picking at weaknesses, I think!)

writercizer sample response:

In the span of one hour, the entire contents of the fridge and a week's worth of groceries will miraculously reside in these two tiny bellies.

Mushrooms. Ketchup. Mushrooms. Ketchup. Let's go with the mushrooms.

(Note: This photo was taken nearly four years ago, just after these two little munchkins turned one and figured out fridge doors. I love catching them in the act "breaking the law." The "oh, no! she caught us!" look is just too fun. I have all sorts of photos that prove big messes and double trouble behavior and they make me smile each time I look at them!)


  1. are you sure this is ok?

    trust me, this sandwich is going to be sooo good!

  2. Wow, and I thought mom's boobs were full of good stuff!

  3. Mom: "How in the world did you get the door open?"
    Child number one: "Bowny.."
    Mom: "But there aren't any brownies in there..."
    Child number two: "Bownybownybownybowny....."
    Dad: "He means the Brownies, honey. I told you to stop letting fairies into our house!! Damned thing ate my sandwich!"


    1. Oh dear. Sandwich eating fairies? Those little buggers!

  4. "Hey!What are those things?"

    "Green trees."


  5. "How do you think it tastes?"
    "I don't know. I just think it'll be better than whatever Dad just cooked!"

    1. Haha, that's for sure! My dad was the family cook when I was growing up, but it definitely is not the case in my house now for my kids!

      I do have to say, he's learning his way around the grill ....

  6. Oh the cuteness!
    OK...to caption....
    DO you have the idol?
    No! I thought you did!
    Better watch out for that rock...

    1. Aw, thanks for the cuteness comment and the caption!

  7. "Do you think she hid them in here?"

    1. Hahaha, wouldn't that be just like a man? Great! They can walk, now fetch something for Daddy. ;)

      (Kidding, male readers, kidding.)

  9. Pink: "Why is it so cold?"
    Yellow: "May be there is a machine in here that keeps it cold"
    Pink: "That's silly. I know, this is a gateway to Santa's house. Look, this is where he keeps all the extra food people set out for him."

    1. Ooooh - I love the imaginative twist here. I could totally see myself creating this sort of an explanation when I was a kid. Fabulous.

  10. I wonder why she keeps all the good stuff on the top shelf.

  11. "Hey, do you think Mum will mind if we cook our own dinner for once?"


  12. Ummm, now this is a cool box to climb in!

  13. cheesse-sticks, there in here SOMEWHERE.

  14. Sorry, I know I'm a few days late but I just had to comment on this. I had to do a double take because for a second I thought this was a picture of my two at that age :-)
