Birthday Ideas

I asked my dog what he got me for my birthday.

He jumped up and gave me a hug.

That was a great gift.

Then I decided I would change everything.

My name, my hair.

Especially my hair.

Orange? Orange hair sounds good.

I immediately filled a legal-size notepad with ideas.

Shoes made of empty water bottles.

A shirt made of leaves.

Maybe a wooden hat.

A noodle mask.

Then I tried out different voices.

Gruff.

Smooth.

Hackey.

Fourteen hours later, I left my house and went straight to the public library.

They were closed.

I proceeded to walk – water bottles crackling under each step – to the bank.

I was immediately shot as I entered the building.
