Prompt: You just opened the front door and a dinosaur in a tuxedo lunges for your face! What do you do? (This is from Embrace Your Weird)
“Hey Omar!” Hugging him. “You’re late. The ladies are waiting. Dinosaurs are extinct. No one is going to want to have sex with you.”
“You should have picked a baby koala – They’re popular now with the wildfires and all and if someone were to pee on you, it wouldn’t seem so inappropriate” I can’t tell if he’s looking at me but I know he can hear me so I continue.
“Here’s your drink.” I put it in his hand. “Everyone’s downstairs. I’ll be there in a sec.”
“Let’s get this party started folks.” I turn up the music and turn on the disco lights.
As host I cannot participate but I still dress up. This year I’m an eastern quoll. “Go wildfires!” (in a good way.)
