Do You Hear the Reindeer Sing?

by on December 2, 2012

This weekend, Trifecta’s prompt was to write 33 words about rebellion or revolt. Enjoy.

“Nicky?”

“Yes?”

“They’ve barricaded the workshop again. I warned you about letting Jingles see Les Miserables.” Anna seemed most upset.

Nicholas sighed. He wished he had hired Oompa-Loompas. Elves were so blasted temperamental.

  1. Very nice! I hope they can pacify the elves in time for Christmas.

    • I hope so too. To paraphrase Jo in “Little Women”, Christmas won’t be Christmas without any elves.

    Elves do seem like a temperamental lot. 🙂

    Ha! I love this :3

  4. I enjoyed reading this.

  5. Funny! I’ve heard that about elves 🙂

    • So have I, as it happens. Not like dwarves, you know; dwarves seem much more grounded.

  6. Perfect title. Love it. Those dang elves have an inferiority complex with thier height. Can’t understand why. I’m exactly 5′ 11″ tall but you don’t hear me bemoaning that one inch.

    • Well, as the saying goes, if you give those elves an inch, they’ll take a ruler.

    Rebellion in the North Pole! (Animal Farm is called Rebellion on the Farm in Spanish.)

    • I regret that my Spanish does not extend very far beyond “Where is the bathroom”, “My navel is on fire”, and “Poor tomato.”

  8. I can almost hear the singing…

    • …Singing a song of angry elves,
      It is the music of the people,
      Who will not be slaves again!
