Come on kid and throw me the damn fish. Don’t look at your mother for approval just toss me the treat she put  in  your  hand. Herring, anchovies, flounder, salmon I don’t care. I spent the last few centuries at sea and it was slim pickings I can tell you. I work hard for my food. Even Plesiosaurs’s  can fall on bad times you know.

Ok! Ok! I’ll clap my flippers for you ok? I’m starving here kid so give me a break. I’m almost  a skeleton right now can’t  you see.

I tell ya, I get no respect.

    Poor Rodney – he’s definitely fallen on hard times! I hope he gets his food soon. Great narrative voice. I could picture this really clearly. 🙂

    Forget the anchovies, kid. It feels like a great day for a relaxing swim, doesn’t it? Jump on in, the water’s fine!

    Poor Rodney, he really needs the food. That kid should get on with it. Funny story, great take on the prompt.

    He doesn’t even look like Rodney, although I’d pay to see Mr. Dangerfield clapping his paws for fish. Nicely done. 🙂 😉

    This is very funny! I can just imagine some poor seal or sea lion waiting for their Food. Thanks for the late night chuckle.

        You’re very welcome! I’ve just launched a new fiction challenge myself if you fancy a go when I release the first prompt next Wednesday?
