Alligator Shoes

  
 Since it is almost the end of the month, Minnie is once again ready to come out and play some Gibberish with you. Originally she had decided to use this gibberish as an opening to the A-Z challenge but once again she has changed her mind. You will have to wait and see what she has planned for that. Usually Minnie does not have more than a couple of lines to start you off with but this month she has given you a bit more inspiration. Have fun and if you don't know how this works you can LOOK HERE.


Alligator Shoes never wanted to be Alligator Shoes. It just so happened that when she went to get a ticket that was the only one left. Tough, mean and nasty she roamed the streets on her misfortune. Night time was her favorite because no one could really see the ugly skin that paled across her soles. Night after night she waited in the shadows for something else to come along. The cold and the hunger dodged her attention; all that remained real were the corners on the street in front of her and the sound of her breath as she waited. Tonight she felt lucky. There was something strange in the air, something else was coming, and when it turned the corner she caught her breath in surprise.

"Alligator shoes hurt like hell, as you can see they bit some of my toes straight off! Well, what ya waiting for? It's your turn and I want to find out what happens to those shoes"


The finished story will be posted soon, how soon is up to all of you.

There in the streetlight was a pair of Uggs!

McKenzie McCann said...

"Hello," the boots said to the shoes. "I've been waiting for this, waiting since the day you stole my greatest treasure."

Melissa Sugar said...

"I will lead you to your treaure, but what will you give me in return?" "How about this alligator belt to match?" Uggs answered.

Stephanie V said...

Rolling down the pavement was a wheel of leather with corks wobbling on the edge...an alligator belt cinched around the crown.

Hart Johnson said...

Uggs looked at the belt and then looked at his own waist sheepishly. "I think we need a little more gator to do the job."

Gregg said...

When the sun came up and light glistened on her already shinning cheeks the dark turned upside down and knocking her down, caused her to say, "Well, I ain't never!"

Uggs could hear Alligator teeth gnashing and snapping in the air and his breath caught in his throat. Had the shoes mother caught up with him at last?

Bryce Daniels said...

Suddenly, inspiration settled. Uggs smiled as he reached for his Blackberry. "What a crock! A dial to my favorite magician should do the trick!"

One abracadabra later a swarm of miniature alligators rained down from the clouds.

Emily Rose said...

And puddles of miniature alligators formed below Uggs. And suddenly Stiletto appeared!

Elisabeth Hirsch said...

But stiletto was no match for mini gators and soon they swallowed him up!

sue said...

But oh how the mini gators stomach ached. This was worse than the worst indigestion. Stiletto spiked mini gators innards painfully, piercing his intestines...

Chapter 2

After the fit of vomitting resulting in upheaval of Stilettos and asundry other vile footwear designed to cripple go-getters, Mini Gators rebuked himself for once again resorting to aggression. His failed New Year's resolution to engage in only harmonious endeavors that spread peace to those within his bubble of knowledge hung around his neck, a medallion of disgrace.
