99 Word Prompt: Balloons

March 8: Flash Fiction Challenge

Timmy brought the balloon animal to his family.  “Look at what I got.”

“Why look at that balloon dog!” his mother said.  “How cute!”

“No,” father disagreed, “it’s a horse.”

“You’re both wrong,” grandma interrupted.  “It’s obviously a rhinoceros.”

“Let me look at that,” Uncle Wally requested as he took the balloon animal and inspected it.  “Just as I thought, a pelican.”

Aunt Sue grabbed the balloon animal and looked it over.  “No, it’s a lobster.”

“You’re all wrong,” Timmy said as he took it back.  “It’s just a bunch of balloons randomly tied together.  You people are weird.”
