Today you have two options
Write a poem or short story about an existing animal. Don’t name the animal you are writing about let us guess based on the description of the animal. Pay careful attention to the animal’s personality and mannerisms and be sure to point out any charming eccentricities!
Write a poem or story whereby you pitch an idea for a new type of animal to the Creator. Why do you believe the world would benefit from the existence of your creature? Don’t forget to describe the appearance and general temperament of your creature in detail!
I’d love to have you as a pet. You’d be the talking point of the street, especially when I tied you up outside to do the weekly shop. You’d earn your keep of course, as you’d be our transport as well as guarding our property. No-one would dare mess with you.
Your intelligence is above reproach, though your eating habits might prove a tad awkward and you can be a bit of a joker when it comes to taking a drink.
You could hardly sleep on my bed, though if it were possible, I wouldn’t mind. Maybe we could change lodgings and I’d sleep on your bed with you. Now that would work.
Clearing up after you might also be a bit of a bother. You do tend to do rather big jobbies and when you wee, it’s like Niagara Falls. But you’re loyal and loving, and I know you’d look after us.
Now if I could make a wish to the Creator and ask him to make you in miniature, maybe then you could play with the mice instead of reportedly being afraid of them.
