Hard to believe Susan has been hosting this particular challenge for a year! Congratulations Susan!
She’s chosen a picture supplied by her predecessor, Al Forbes (aka A Mixed Bag) to inspire us.
Maurice had been on about having a pet for ages.
At eight, he couldn’t make up his mind, but knew he didn’t want a rabbit, guinea pig, gerbil or hamster. Neither did he want a budgie, cockatiel or parrot.
One day he came home from school and announced he wanted a pet dragon.
‘Just think,’ he said dreamily, ‘I’ll be the envy of my friends, and Dad can have an instant barbecue!’
‘And where do you think you’re going to keep this dragon?’ his mother asked.
‘In the garage of course.’
‘Really?’ his dad chimed in. ‘And where will the car go?’
‘We won’t need a car! He’ll be big enough to take us for rides on his back, we can avoid all the traffic jams, and get where we want to go in half the time!’
‘Right. I can just see me parking a dragon in the company car park. I’m sorry son, but you’ll have to think again.’
Maurice was crestfallen, but only for an instant.
‘OK. I’ll go with plan B then.’
‘And what might that be ? A horse?’
‘No, silly! I’ll have a shark and we can keep it in the bath.’
‘What? Tell you what. We’ll compromise, you can have a goldfish and we’ll call it Jaws.’
