was big enough to not notice a stranger
yet too small to give complete anonymity.
All that was needed was
a few days to watch
the habits of his prey,
choose the best time to strike
and ponder how to make the kill.
He would show this evil bastard real predation.
This is a Flash Fiction Friday 55.

That being said and with creativity being so subjective coupled with the fact that I am wishy washy, I am posting two sets of five. Now I have never said I am trying to maintain any sort of pictorial anonymity because I have made appearances in an early blog called "The Gentleman Child" and in "The Monkey House". Although Monkey House was only a reflection of me.
Here is set of five number one -
Now the hard part. Five things I like about myself: 1) I am loyal - to a fault; 2) I am not afraid to do something stupid in public - stupid being anything that embarrasses my kids which leave the door pretty wide open; 3) I am open minded; 4) I am willing to change and; 5) I have a great sense of humor.
Now five bloggers I push this curse off on like some unwanted plague of a chain letter.
Gotten rid of
Sent to the pound
Dumped in a field near a farm
At a park
Living creatures treated like so much refuse
Bought to make a child happy
To fix an ailing relationship
Because the are so cute
Because I have always wanted one
Then discarded because they are
Out of control
No longer cute
Pets are a responsibility requiring
And they give in return
and, yes, given an opportunity, they train us
Animals deserve a chance
and sometimes a second chance
Support your local shelter.

My home is what some might call Monkey Central. It began a number of years ago with the acquisition of a single long armed, stuffed creature named Rabies and has grown exponentially since then.
