Kid’s talk…

for Sunday Photo Fiction





It is.

  It’s not.

It IS!

  It’s too small.

It’s a baby one.

  It’s not.

What is it then?

  It’s a……lizard.


  Alright, it’s a newt.

They live in ponds.

  Or a gego…a gecy…a….

I told you, it’s a dragon.


A baby dragon.

  You could be right.

In olden days they used baby dragons to light cigarettes.


Yes, before they invented cigarette lighters.

  Are you sure?

Yes, and barbecues too.


Yes, Grandad told me.

  No, he was kidding!



  Hey, look.



What’s that?

  It’s a baby snake.

No, it’s not.

  Oh no, it’s a worm.


Look. a lion

  It’s Mrs Brown’s cat

    Haha. I needed a good laugh today and I got it.

    Reading it again, did you mean invented rather than invited??

      Duly corrected! Sometimes you can proofread something over and over again and still miss the obvious! I’m delighted to have amused you, Graham.
