The two of them

Over at Pictures, Poetry & Prose, one of our recent muses was a picture from Cyndy. I don't know how she captured this picture, but it's great. You really have to go take a peek at it so that the writing makes sense.

I'll wait.

Most of the writers wrote humorous pieces. As did I. I really couldn't help it. The picture just burst with funny. Don't you agree?

The voice that immediately popped into my head when I saw the picture was the voice of the Abominable Snowman. Do you remember that scene? When he finds Daffy Duck and he thinks he's a rabbit. "I will love him, and pet him, and call him George." Use that voice for Fred when you're reading this.

Our suggested prompt: "The two of them stood and talked about their plan..."
My submission ...

"Psssst! Fred … c'mere!"

"Uuuuh, what, George?"

"See that? Over there? What's that?"

"I don' see nuttin', George."

"Over there! That guy. He's pointing something at us."

"Da guy wit' da silver rectangle tingy?"

"Yeah, him. What's he doing?"

"I duhnno, George."

"It doesn't look good, Fred. What if it's the same thing that Farmer Joe had yesterday? You saw what happened when he pointed that long, skinny black thing at Jimmy."

"Yeah. Jimmy falled over."

"He didn’t just fall over -- he died, you bonehead! DIED!!"

"Oh."

"Yeah, OH."

So what should we do den', George?"

"I think we should hide. Hide behind this fence. Like this. See?"

"I don' tink dat's gonna work, George."

"Just do it, Fred. Duck. DUUUUCK!!"

"I don' see no ducks, George."

I'm so glad that you shared your inspiration for this piece. It makes this dialogue even richer. I always loved that Daffy Duck/Abominable Snowman exchange. Wonderful response to this prompt.
