Spring Break

“Ahhh…alone at last.

What a beautiful spring day.

The sun on my face, feet in the water.”

 

“This way everyone, this way…

Over here we have a lovely high-altitude salt water lake that may suit your needs.

Plenty of larva, small insects, algae, and shrimp for the most discerning palettes.

While it gets a little cold at night, it’s a wonderful place to raise a family.”

 

“Um, excuse me.”

 

“Oh, sorry, didn’t see you there.”

 

“No problem, but you see, I was looking for a nice quiet place to get a little rest and relaxation. A spring break if you will.”

 

“Are we bothering you?”

 

“Well, there are quite a lot of you.”

 

“A flamboyance of flamingos, I’m afraid.”

 

“Do you think you will be long?”

 

“Just a few months.”

 

Sigh.

 

“You could join us. We are about to start the dance.”

 

“Dancing? I love dancing!”

 

“Well then, let’s go.”

  1. Your humor is spot on in this piece, Rebecca! I’ll agree with everyone else – I was smiling and laughing throughout! “A flamboyance of flamingoes, I’m afraid” was my favorite line. Great job and good luck in the contest!
