This definitely qualifies as Mischief.
This post is inspired by Marian Allen, a fantastic writer who is dedicated and inspiring. We are only starting A Story A Day May on May 24th, so…well, at least we’re trying. Mom has never written a story. Yes, she’s written blog posts.
Katya Graymalkin (cat who owns Marian Allen), wrote a story about traveling to Italy, and the prompt to other companion animals was: If you could travel, where would you go?
Livvie Travels to the Land of Sepia Sleepia
by Terry Cramer, via Livvie Cramer, rat terrier
One evening, as I was waiting for Mom to come home, I slid into a kind of sleep that felt like enormous, furry bear paws enveloping me in an umber plushness. My body was plummeting through blue fuzz, yet held firmly by this muscular embrace. I landed in a rich, green-sienna canopy filled with tiny beige creatures hopping about like caffeinated bunnies.
“Errrrr”! I expressed a sort of growl to test the waters. “Errrr”!
“Allo der”! a tiny squishy voice answered. “Allo der, are yew lost, white creature with spots and pointy snoutie”?
“Aaaaoo”! I answered, stymied about language protocols.
I did a little eyeball of the surroundings, and saw mocha-colored cottony tree-like things sprouting from the rich, mud-colored ground. I could sense a cookie somewhere close.
“I’m SupposeEd, your Ersatz Bunny-Like Guide,” the tiny being blurted. S/he was java-and taffy- striped with a pentagram-shaped body, and rabbit legs galore. “‘Ere, ‘ave a likkle treat”!
Chomp, chomp chomp, the flavor of sepia, yum.
“Wherrrr am I?” I growl-spoke to SupposeEd.
“‘Ere in Sepia Sleepia Land, of course. Didn’t you know? ”
“How errrrr did I get here? Errrr,” I still growl-spoke, in my hyper-snout-vigilence.
“Your mum has been participating in one too many Sepia Saturday Blog Hops, and this time you actually slipped right through the portal”!
I began to cry. “Eeeeee Eeeeee Eeeeeee”! “Mommieeeee”!
“Ok, likkle Pointy Spotted Snout! We will send you back. You’re too discombobulated to stay this time. But do us a favor, and tell the world about us, the Sepia Erzatz Bunny-Like Guides”! (SEBELS)
“Ok SupposeEd, OK SupposeEd…………URUFFFFIEO!”
Whoosh. Whoosh. Smoglespurtie. Ooglesmarth. Whoosh……….
