Flash Fiction Friday 7.0

Wow, I've been so crazy busy since I got home, I completely forgot about Flash Fiction Friday...

SO, since my post yesterday mentioned how choosing an animal, to 'short-hand' their characteristics, can be a good tool, how about this for today's sentence?


Whenever someone’s asked that dumb, get-to-know-you-game question, “what kind of animal would you be”, my answer is always the same.

  1. The only real fiction here is that I've never actually answered that question this way, but here it is regardless. Less than 100 words.

    Whenever someone's asked that dumb, get-to-know-you-game question, "what kind of animal would you be", my answer is always the same. A seahorse! First off, how can you dis the classification “aquatic equine”? It simply cannot be done. And the men get their own little pouches for the sprouting out of younglings. Cool. Like an undersea thylacine minus extinction. Plus, they can grip objects, like coral or seaweed, with their flexible tails. Then blow bubbles! Who wouldn’t want to be a seahorse?

    1. ...and, in Japanese (and I think Chinese) mythology, a seahorse is a baby dragon ;)

    I smile, slightly mocking I hope, and respond: "The one I am right now."
    They seldom ask me any more questions like that; I have a list of answers, if you'd like to see them? Wait, you would? No one has ever wanted to before.
    Wait, hold on, since when is: “what kind of knife do you want stabbed into your stomach for being a twat” is valid ques ....

    1. Hahahahaha!

      At least I knew you wouldn't say 'kitten', since, well, that was a conversation that should probably be kept off the internet...
