Sky Blue and Grass Green

In case anybody isn't on Twitter, a very very short story in Tweets.

Sky Blue and Grass Green

I am not on twitter, and I appreciate this.

What did they learn?
And what happened to their mother?

Nah, it was Bugs that really worked Wile. E. over. The roadrunner is a one trick pony; speed demon.

Awesome, thank you. I needed that today. :)

I'm not on Twitter - thank you for sharing this, I enjoyed it.

I'm assuming that the sister-clones had learned never to trust a road-runner, so they both lived long, happy lives - but that neither could ever become a writer or storyteller?

because they had learned that it is better to have no tale than to have a dramatic, tragic ending?

You win the internet today.

Today I learned that armadillo moms always give birth to a litter of (commonly 4, but occasionally 3 or 5) pups that are always identical, being formed from the same egg, and that this has a fancy name ("polyembryony"). This seemed like the kind of detail 1. You would like, and 2. You would turn into a story.

For all I know, you already have. o_O


*cough* I did know this, and it sorta comes up in a manuscript that I will totally finish some day.

And sword wielding lizards _don't_ make you boggle? :-)

It's probably epigenetic. Of course, that's an easy word to cover a multitude of developmental processes. :-)

THIS is why I want to throw money in a tip jar every so often.

NOT to burden you, but to say: Thank you. You made me smile.

This. What he/she said.

That's why an Ursula Tip Jar should be a Thing.

Love this!

So many useful lessons: Don't trust evil road runners; Know when to sacrifice the inessential; and, It always pays to have a kickass mother (with a vorpal sword)!

Thank you for the story. I read it aloud, and there was much rejoicing.
