Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #27

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

Now, this could be fun. Who is our gal and what kind of pet does she have? Dog? Cat? Hamster? Ferret? What does the pet say? Does it make demands—more room on the bed, tastier treats, a new toy, more frequent belly rubs? Maybe the pet becomes brutally honest about her hygiene? Could it want to karaoke to a Journey song?  Offer to take her to its weekly Paw Support group meeting? Disclose with a degree of malicious glee it has been plotting to kill her?

Share your ideas and/or post your creations, even if it’s just a line or two. I’d love to hear them.

    You may think this is a Doctor Doolittle situation… but that’s not true.
    For one thing, this old bag couldn’t doctor her way out of a, well, a bag. Though she’d be aptly named “do-little” since she does little but slosh around in her gin. Switching to vodka, however, was her downfall today.
    And pouring it into my bowl gave me just the excuse I’ve been needing to give her a piece of my mind.
    Let’s start with some new ground rules:
    1. forget the water — I want low-fat milk in the mornings and pet-wine in the evenings. Save the water for washing your smelly feet.
    2. better food (and more of it) — stop buying all that bargain brand crud and get me some fresh meat. How would you like it if I was in charge of the money and I bought your food at the Dollar Store?
    3. a place at the table — eating off the floor is ridiculous. I’ll bet I’ve ingested more dust bunnies than food… since you’ve been on the sauce.
    4. no more tricks — no, I will not roll over or beg or whatever else you think you can entertain your scant few friends with. In fact, now that this vodka has loosened my tongue, the only trick I may perform is telling you to quit exploiting me for the entertainment of your buddies.
    I know there’s more than four points, but I’m sleepy now and I’m getting an awful headache. Where’d you by that vodka anyhow — the Dollar Store?

    Haha! Pet-wine does NOT sound appetizing. Wonder if the poof will remember when he wakes up. Good one, Jeff!

  3. Ah, how does it feel to be on the other side of the fishbowl, with someone staring at you half the time and forgetting you exist the rest of it? Don’t give me those big, drunken goo-goo eyes. I have big goo-goo eyes myself but then I should; I’m a Molly for cripes sake! If I could get out of this bowl I’d find a way to finish you off. And stop asking me if I’m Henry Limpet!

    Haha! Good one, Patti. I had to think for a moment where I had heard that name before, but it came to me. 😀
