Look Out

by on August 26, 2012

This story was written for the Trifecta weekend prompt, which was to write 33 words using the name of an animal as a verb. I went with the obvious choice. Heh. For previous stories about Farthington Milroy, Winifred, Fillmore Streamlet, and Cyan, go here.

“Duck!” cried Farthington. Winifred scurried to the rack of dead animal bits. Then a green ray transmogrified her into a cricket. Winifred reflected that becoming an Igor hadn’t been her best life choice.

  1. Winifred actually chose to be an Igor? Among other choices of… other poor choices I gather?

    • It does make one wonder what could be worse than being an Igor. Porta-potty mucker-outer, maybe?

  2. C.D. Tolliver permalink

    I like the use of transmogrified, it’s so much more esoteric than transmuted or reconfigured.

    • You’ll have to thank Calvin of “Calvin and Hobbes” for that one. It is indeed such a lovely word.

  3. LOL. I think you need to put out a collection of all these tiny stories.

  4. How clever to use “duck” as your verb, already commonly in circulation. 🙂

  5. Ha! It’s funny how when things go bad we seem to stop and think that maybe we made a bad choice 🙂 (Not that I’ve done that before. Nope. Not me…)

    • As Alice said, “I give myself such very good advice, and I very seldom follow it.” 🙂

  6. Great use of the animal verb here. I love the rack of animal bits too!

    • which is a really disturbing thing for anyone to have, if you think about it. Thanks for reading!

  7. What a judgement call…
