Raven and the French Fry Dilemma – p.8

October 12, 2011 at 2:55 pm 5 comments

All of the seagulls were now inside the dumpster. Cardinal looked sideways at Raven, and in perfect sync, the two birds zoomed down and in one swoop pushed the side door closed. Then they took a victory lap around the parking lot, chirping and squawking heartily as they flew.

The dumpster was shaking as the gulls all flung themselves at the sides and the door and the lid, but they were trapped. Their cries were slightly muffled but loud enough that they entertained Raven and Cardinal for the rest of the long night.

The next morning, as Raven expected, a large green truck appeared and slowly backed up to the dumpster. It reached out with two long metal arms, grabbed the dumpster and lifted it, turning it upside down. As the lid fell open, the flock of seagulls came tumbling out with the trash. Some of them landed in the back of the truck, dodging the falling rubbish, but at last they all managed to fly away.

Raven and Cardinal never saw the gulls again. The two birds shared all the french fries in the parking lot from that day to this.

    Now, if we could just get all the idiot Republicans into a french fry laden parking lot … near a dumpster… (not that all Republicans are idiots, but the ones that are)

      Stephanie, I would agree with your plan if it also included all the idiot Democrats.

    @ Ms. O: What a happy ending! Thank you! @ Stephanie: The Godzilla Truck wouldn’t be able to lift a dumpster full of Republicans, but thanks for the nice thought!:-)

    I appreciate the love, but let’s leave the politics out of it – I think Democrats and Republicans are both far too frightening for bedtime stories. 😉

      Raven, you are absolutely correct. I apologize that I fell into that trap. It won’t happen again. All it accomplished was to make me feel disillusioned and heartbroken. I will only comment about your stories from now on. They are great and deserve all the attention!
