Travel Companion

I was walking through the Brazilian rain forest when I came upon a toucan.

I said, “I’m lost, can you help me?”

The toucan said, “I’ll try. Where are you trying to get to?”

I said, “The Century movies theater in Evanston.”

The toucan said, “What are you going to see?”

I said, “Fright Night.”

The toucan said, “Can I come?”

I said, “Yes.”

The toucan flew to my shoulder. We walked together for two days straight and we were still in the rain forest.

I said, “I think by the time we get there, it will no longer be showing.”

The toucan said, “That’s alright, nothing ever ends up as you imagined.”

I got hungry and cooked and ate the toucan.
