“In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a koala in a kingdom.”
[Extra points for pulling off a BOTS (Based On a True Story)]
– a prompt for this week’s CW piece.
Visiting Australia and NOT seeing koalas? A travesty.
“The koala’s been sleeping all day” – the caretaker said as soon as we entered the exhibit.
A sleeping marsupial meant no good pictures.
We approached not knowing what to expect.
“Oh, he’s up! You guys are lucky” – said the caretaker enthusiastically.
The koala’s black, beady eyes met mine.
Jonah whistled and Dot – the kangaroo hopped on over.
“Get in!” – Jonah motioned for me to get inside Dot’s pouch with him and I swiftly obeyed.
We went around the zoo, meeting every animal in there.
Ah, the eucalyptus haze…
