Sunday afternoon teatime is always better with a little story, don’t you think? So here is a little excerpt from my story “Fantasy Animals.” To read more of this delightful modern day parable about today’s world problems click here.
NOT ALWAYS IN HARMONY
Not necessarily in peace, did these two very special
animals live. You see, from a very early age, Scoop and
Vortex got on each other’s nerves almost constantly.
Every time Vortex would take great delight in placing
his long proboscis upon the earthen floor to suck the ants up
his snout, Scoop would rage at him: “Oh Vortex, there you
go again! Do you have to wheeze and suck with so much
gusto? It sounds like you are cutting down the entire Amazon
with an electric buzz saw blade.” This was most definitely her
favorite way to chide Vortex into active battle.
“I eat ants and termites. That’s what I do so just get
over it Scoop!” Vortex was always very offended to be compared to the electric buzz saw that they sometimes could
hear in the distance that filled them all with deep terror as it destroyed their beautiful habitat.
