My 2nd Fiction Friday



This Week’s Challenge: Pick a mythical person or creature (e.g., Santa, Thor, Easter Bunny), and explain through dialog, essay, or anything else, why they are unhappy with their job or position in life.


Dear Al,

You're fired!

I've been waiting 1001 Nights to tell you that. And now I've done it, I've just fired my boss. Why? You should know, you've been the worse master I've ever had. First it was just three wishes, then three more, then three more after that. You could never quit. It was like a drug with you. "Your wish is my command." Yeah, right. My wish is my command now, baby.

If only you had been an honest boss in our initial interview. I could maybe have developed some respect for you. But no. You asked of me the impossible. Like, wanting to know the mind of a woman! Or if I could provide you a plan for world peace. You even wished for tasty jello. Impossible, I tell you.

I thought about writing something like, "It is with great sadness that I must tender my resignation." But that just wouldn't be fair to you. You gotta know, Al, that from now on you'll be rubbing your own lamp - and all you'll get is a shiny lamp. I'm going into business for myself.

No longer yours,
Genie
