Newest entry in Madison Woods “Friday Fictioneers” exercise. Feel free to comment, I can always learn something new from others.

Same dream, every night, what did the damn bird want? Did it represent that bitch suing him for harassment for a playful swat on the ass?  Maybe it was that cow of an ex-wife whose lawyer found his hidden bank account. Vultures, they were all vultures out to screw him over.

Maybe this time would be different.  The bird cast his wings skyward, fixing its piercing eyes on his face. He waited with bated breath as the bird finally broke his silence.

“You’re an ass!” it squawked, taking flight.

    I did not expect that, but I can’t say the bird is wrong.

    The bird said precisely what was thinking! Lol

  6. No wonder he has these dreams. His has it up to the sleeve, Good shto. Mine is here and linked: http://readinpleasure.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/fridayfictioneers-spectators/

  7. LOL, I wonder if he finally understood all the signs and portents he’d been getting along the way? Cute story. The only thing I saw to critique is the word ‘for’ in this phrase: “…for a playful swat …” I’d use “…suing him for harassment OVER a playful swat…”

  8. Interesting karma, love the analogy. Well done.

  9. We both did dreams this week. Your gentleman does not sound like a very nice person and deserves his nightmare.

    HA! I somehow doubt he’ll learn from his dreams, but I sure enjoyed it.
