CW: When pigs fly.

“Write a tall tale about a current event, person or place in 99 – words, no more no, less.”
– a prompt for this week’s CW piece.

The below piece was submitted as an entry for this year’s Rodeo contest
and won a spot in the finals. Yeehaw! 


“This world is coming to an end” – said David to his friend.

“Stop whining. Every generation has its time” – replied Quan.

“We need the Internet to file an Internet outage complaint. Soon we will need money to buy money. Like in Zimbabwe…”

“At least we have water” – David added.

“When pigs fly…”

At that very moment, Quan’s son came into the room with his newly purchased guineapig.

“Look what I’ve got, Daddy” – he said right before he tripped over his own feet.

The pig went flying out of his hands.

The two men looked at one another in terror.
