“So you think you can do it?”
I stare at the giant gray mass in front of me. It stomps around, turning anything unlucky enough to be caught in its path into a pile of mush. With the sound of a trumpet, its jaws widen and I cringe at the sight of its rough, yellow teeth.
“Let me get this straight. You want me to give this… this giant, mud-crusted creature a dental checkup?”
I sigh, trying not to flinch as the elephant’s leathery trunk wraps around my midsection.
“Alright, fine. It’s not like I have anything better to do.”
*Note: I know, this is so random. Don’t question it. The prompt was to write something based on the idiom “fish out of water,” which basically means to write about something or someone that’s out of its element.
And this ended up being what I wrote.
