A Knock at the Door

A Knock on the Door #LWG prompt.

A knock on the door.

“Who’s there?”


“Cuthbert who?”

“Cuthbert Carmichaelson.”

“Is this a joke?”

“Well, if it is it’s not funny,”

“No. You are right about that.”

“Are you going to answer the door?”

“Not today thank you!”

“You don’t even know what I’m selling!”

“Ah, but you are selling something.”

“I might not be.”

“No, that is true also. Ir doesn’t really matter, because I’m not buying.”

“Oh, that’s a shame.”


“Because I have a magic goose.”

“What’s magic about it?”

“It lays eggs.”

“Don’t they all?”

“Not the males; but, I hear what you are saying. This one lays rubber eggs.”

“Not golden ones?”

“As if. Do you think I’d be trying to sell this goose if it laid golden eggs?”

“There is a lot of truth in that also. Is there a reason why this magical goose lays rubber eggs?”

“Its diet. I feed it on rubber worms.”


“Otherwise it wouldn’t lay rubber eggs, would it?”

“Sounds a bit fishy to me.”

“She doesn’t eat fish.”

“No. I don’t want to buy your magical goose that lays rubber eggs.”

“I have a duck that can count to 10.”

“Very useful I’m sure. Good day!

“And a penguin that plays the ukulele.”

“Not listening.”

“How about a parrot that recites Chaucer?”

“In the original?”

“Of course.”

“How much?”

“Five pounds.”

The door is opened.

“April Fool!”

“Oh, Cousin Sylvester, you are a one.”

“I sure am.”

“Now, where is this parrot?”
