A Missed Opportunity

For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 11 December 2015

It could have been a night to remember for Uncle Milt, but it didn’t end that way.

Lying on the floor was the discarded yellow bird outfit worn by Victoria just a while ago. She was teasing him with it, flapping her wings to show the promise of a delectable feast.

“Come, sweetie,” she begged him. “Take me to the promised land.”

Eagerly, he prepared for lift off, but there was no cigar. He kept misfiring. With too much to drink, he was unable to rise to the occasion.

Disgusted, Victoria left in a huff, banging the door behind her.

        I meant so many! And not too spicy at all. Just spicy enough.

    Is there a typo? Did you mean Uncle Wilt? ha ha. The chicken was spicy indeed – but something adults can surely handle. Funny story.

    Poor Uncle Milt. I hate when that happens. Perhaps a French Maid outfit instead of a chicken costume would have led to a more inspired performance on his part–that, and a blue egg-shaped pill.

    Uncle Wilt – ha ha
    This chicken has inspired some spicy stories. Who knew that chicken suits were so sexy? Well actually not in Milt’s opinion.

    I’m blaming the bird outfit. Not everyone finds them that sexy, oddly enough. πŸ˜‰

    Well, at least they had good intentions! Sometimes even a bird costume can’t save it.

    I’ve heard that can happen. Too much alcohol causes problems. Well written, Plaridel. — Suzanne
