WATW — Come Back Tomorrow

2F107820-8B7F-40FF-AB9D-BC6C79ACFE51Whoa! That’s some strong smell. It’s enough to curl my feathers.

Hell, Polly doesn’t need a freakin’ cracker. Polly needs a goddam bath. Where’s that birdbath, anyway? I know I saw it around here somewhere.

No, don’t come near me. Not today. Come back tomorrow. We can talk then. I promise I’ll clean up my act. I’ll put on a really good show. Tomorrow.

      Thanks. I couldn’t help myself. I saw a parrot sniffing its pit and ran with it.

        Well done! I love your short stories… I never know where you’re heading and that’s a lot of fun!

          To be honest with you, when I start writing my short tales in response to various word or picture prompts, I generally don’t know where I’m heading either. My endings often surprise me as well.

            I guess the best way to surprise your readers, is to surprise yourself first 😉

        The parrot it is.. Ha! Another bad pun. Seriously I need to improve Sensei. Also, It’s weird I had two heated discussions on your site as well, both against knowledgeable people nonetheless. Makes me wonder if I’ve social skills or not. Also do I have anger issues?

          Sometimes my posts stimulate heated discussions. Nothing wrong with that. But when it happens, I tend to lay low…out of the line of fire.

    Lovely prompt, Fandango!
