The Acorn’s Tail – Flash Fiction for 1/13/12

One day a squirrel found an acorn on the forest floor. It was strange because it appeared to have a tail.

The squirrel took it to his rabbit friend. “That’s not a tail, it’s a horn. You’ve found a deer egg.”

She didn’t completely believe the rabbit. She took it to her possum friend. “I’m almost sure that’s a snake hatching out. Kill it now.”

Next she took it to a raccoon, who washed it. “It’s a bomb. That’s clearly a fuse.”

Alarmed, the squirrel cried, “What should I do?”

“Take it somewhere and bury it before somebody gets hurt.”

  1. This would make a great children’s story. All you need is more illustrations. Excellent use of the prompt! Kudos, my friend.
