Breeze Feathers
Tom B. Taker

“Hello. My name’s Odious Rex. People call me Odie.”

The cat slid and made room. “You can sit here. This seat’s not taken.” It was fate because they went together like peas and carrots.

“You ever eaten real shrimp lasagna?” the cat asked.

“No,” Odie replied. “But I’ve eaten real big lasagna.”

One time the cat threw a stick. Odie leaped after it and returned it faster than the wind blows.

“OOOOODIE!!! Why did you return that stick so quickly?” the cat demanded.

Odie was confused. “You told me to, cat?”

“God damn it, Odie! You’re a god damn genius! This is the most outstanding answer I have ever heard.”

Blogdramedy’s The Dog Days of Summer writing challenge commands victims participants to author ten stories, ten days in a row, consisting of exactly 110 words each. All stores are themed based on dogs that she has pre-selected. For more information about the challenge and to view the work of other participants, please click the link. But only if you want stories that have real teeth.

  1. You must have been over at Amy’s house for dinner. Lasagna was on the menu!

    This one was genius. Breeze feathers. I didn’t know you knew what this meant.


    1. Lasagna! FTW!

      And I think I know what Breeze Feathers means, unless it’s some new sexual slang used by the hipster kids.


  2. I gotta admit, I was looking for something a little more NSFW-ier when the first line had Odi(p)ous in it.

    We all know where the p was.


    1. You knew there had to be a backstory on the name Odie.

      I tried hard to keep this challenge on the up-and-up and avoid taking the easy way out. Overall I judge my success as mediocre at best. 🙂
