Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy and Lucy Juggle a Big Problem

“So, what is the big problem you wanted to discuss, Little One?”

“I’m thinking of changing my predator character.”

“Okay. I don’t see that as a problem. You can be what you want.”

“Yeah, but. I have invested a lot of time developing the Puma character.”

“What character did you have in mind?”

“I was thinking of something along the lines of a wolf.”

“Along the lines? Why not just choose to be a wolf and be done with it.”

“Well, you see, there are various kinds of wolves.”

“I get that. They are not all that different.”

“But you have to be comfortable with the kind I choose.”

“To the Wildebeest, a predator is a predator. Still scary.”

“I want you to be comfortable with my choice.”

“Oh,, I’m sure anything you choose will be fine.”

“It may take me some time to figure this out.”

“Take your time. You and I aren’t going anywhere.”

“There is one wolf, in particular, I’m leaning towards.”

“Oh yeah? Which one is that?”

“Ware wolf.”

“OMG.”

  4. ๐Ÿ™‚ The Wolves get some bad press in the world….. But the one to always Be-Ware of, is the Wolf in Sheeps clothing!. And I am more aware of the Human kind, who smile hiding their snarls.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol..

  21. Twiggy is transforming herself into a method actress. Has she been streaming Bela Lugosi films by any chance? If she starts sounding, well…barking… like Maggie Smith, don’t say I didn’t warn ya. As for Lucy, I think she’d prefer a good comedy, like her namesake. ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. Bewere of the ware wolf, Twiggy!
    It could be infected with malware, which is a disease of the sea related to mal de mer.
    If you pass it on to Lucy, or any other wildebeest, they will develop acute crash syndrome.
