The rat race…


It’s happening! We are going to have our very own condo.  A deluxe one.  It will have a spinning wheel and soft bedding and fresh water all the time. There will be self-serve buffet style meals with treats hand delivered.  There are added amenities like maid services and garbage pick up and sometimes a change of scenery when we are moved to warm sunny spots or cool shade depending on the weather.

Don’t be afraid I didn’t hear anything about a snake or lizard in the house.  Yeah, there’s a cat, but we won’t be put in a cage with it and it can’t get into our condo. So all’s well. We can sleep all day and run around all night without having to deal with the hassle of crowds and rowdies who have no manners. No more worrying about some gutter rat getting in your face.  Think how much fun we will have.  And we can have a family and raise them right  No garbage gangs or dumpster delinquents trying to  lead them astray.

It’s going to be grand just you and me in our own perfect nest
and out of this rat race for good!

The prompt is:

“The trouble with being in the rat race is that
even if you win, you are still a rat.”

  1. A very creative take on this prompt. I had pet rats (along with everything else) as a kid. Yes, they did have it made! I sure don’t have a maid!
