Party Animal (Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge)

February 26, 2018

The Carrot Ranch Literary Community, hosted by Charli Mills, is HERE.

February 22, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a unicorn. It can be realistic or fantastical. Go where the prompt leads.

Party Animal

I stepped into the leg holes and frowned. “Seriously?”

“Hey, it was coin flip; can’t be fairer than that.”

“So, Bill, two outta three?”

“How about it’s your daughter’s birthday party?”

“All the more reason I should be the head, right?”

Bill smiled, turned, and pulled the suit over his head.

I pulled up my half, fastened the suspenders and bent over until my nose was right up against Bill’s ample hindquarters.

Maybe next year Tina’s favorite animal will be a monkey, or an ostrich, or some other animal that walks on two legs and not some stinking unicorn.


If you’re interested, here’s a unicorn joke –

Guy’s sitting in a movie theater waiting for the movie to start when a unicorn sits down next to him.

“Hey,” he says. “Are you a unicorn?”

“Yup, I am.”

“What are you doing at a movie?”

“I liked the book.”

    A rich experience here, Michael — the Irish Rovers, a joke, and a Dad’s worst predicament!
