Succinctly Yours: Microfiction -- Week 18

Using the photo as inspiration, write a story of 140 characters or 140 words. It doesn’t have to be exactly 140, just not more.The added optional challenge is to use the word of the week in the story. Then post it here.
 
 
Gepetto made an arbitrary choice to carve a boy.
Would he be able to complete this novel project?
 Why did he keep thinking of strings?

What a great take on this week's photo--Pinocchio! Gepetto was a creative genius with the gears in his head constantly turning! I really like this one.

I'm reminded of Shrek's version, where he jumps and yells I'm a real boy!
Hope it works out this time. The whole long nose thing would be hard to keep a girlfriend, just ask Jack.
