Melvin is a Coconut

Melvin is a coconut.

Melvin hates this fact. It is anathemas to his being. It is abhorrent to his sense of self.

Melvin wants to be a rotwila. Melvin would love to pocess teeth – crunching, munching, ripping, tearing teeth.

Melvin believe in reincarnation but finds he is stuck in a tree. Melvin prays for a storm or a man with a machette.

In about two hours Melvin’s time on the bower shall be cut short. Melvin will hit the sand free at last. Melvin will discover that after all that waiting… he is still a coconut.

    hehe, what happens when someone finds Melvin and turns him into a drink with a lime, umbrella & hibiscus flower? 🙂

    From the first sentence (loved it!) onward this piece amused and delighted.

    I drink coconut milk. I really hope it’s not Melvin.

    Well done!

    I liked this. It could go on and on. Melvin wants teeth, I hope he gets them in the next life.

    Thanks guys 🙂

    Melvin will be back regardless of how much coconut milk is being drunk due to parallel universes but I think he’d actually quiet enjoy having his brains sucked out via a straw to honest 🙂

    As for teeth – he finds plenty of other ways to maim grins evilly.

    Maybe Melvin will get washed out to sea… the adventure begins!

    It might not be so bad to be a coconut. 🙂 ~2

    Cute and philosophical. Melvin may not have teeth, but at least he doesn’t break easy.

    Thankyou! I am really glad I’ve found FridayFalsh to be honest 🙂

    2mara Melvin is indeed destined for many adventures.

    David – Melvin is a murderous inocent it is true though I think the pictures I’ve drawn of him are probably just sinister.

    Thankyou all for commenting and reading 🙂
