Mr. Cactus, a Short Story

“Hello, Mr. Cactus.”

“Is it all right if I connect with you Mr. Cactus? I’ve never ever spoken to a cactus ahead of, and I wouldn’t want to be im-po-lite. Did I say it appropriately? Granny taught me that phrase.

I desire I could have an understanding of you. You’re my only good friend.”

“I am so joyful I can see you yet again, Mr. Cactus! Might I hug you?”

“How appear you failed to prick my face when I hugged you? Are you a unique cactus?”

“Granny suggests I have to slumber listed here, because I’m a negative minimal boy. I’m not so little! Despite the fact that, if it indicates I may rest in your area, I will not brain.”

“Very good early morning, Mr. Cactus. Did you shift?”

“Hi, Mr. Cactus. I… Granny claims I have to go. I’m a undesirable small boy and I are not able to keep with her any longer. Do you know where she’s sending me? She suggests they will ultimately teach me willpower and place the fear of God into me. I never know what it means. Do you? Will I see you there? Will I… Will I ever see you all over again?”

“Mr. Cactus, it can be Granny. I know it is a stupid detail to say, you know it truly is Granny, but… It is really Granny.”
