Magic Carpet

Written for the 30-day creative writing challenge hosted by Nicky and Mike of We Work For Cheese.  Today's prompt is Magic Carpet.  This is the 9th day of this madness.  Check out the Linky at WWFC for more flights of fantasy.

Here we on Day 9, the long-awaited opportunity for some good fictional fantasy, and what have I got?  Nothing!

So, what I can I say about magic carpets?  

Great gas mileage - duh, no gas, it's magic.

Avoids traffic jams - they're above all that.

Time saver - no speed limits.  You have arrived at your destination.

No problem parking - just roll it up and sling it over your shoulder. 

No license required - no waiting at the crowded DMV office.

Physical ability needed - can you sit or lie down for short periods of time?

Cost - Priceless! 

What can I say, some days I am running on empty. 


  1. For being "empty" you wrote quite a bit and were funny and smart at the same time. I don't mind that kind of "empty" at all! In fact, some days I wish I had some!

  2. My poem was also an 'I can't think of anything' post. Your nothing is definitely something :)

  3. I agree with both Babs and Linda M... your nothing is great! Definitely better than my something!

  4. Linda- Thank you! You never know how far you'll get when the low fuel light comes on.

    Babs- Thank you! Yours was definitely something, too.

    Nicky- Aw, thanks. Yours was a great re-write with your own twist on things.

  5. They're great unless it rains. Or snows. Or the cold wind blows...

  6. I think you've got all the bases covered. A magic carpet would be a wonderful thing to have.

  7. Hello, I'm new to your blog. I share your love of cats and writing. I thought you came up with a wonderful description of a magic carpet!


  8. notactuallygod - you have a point there!

    nonamedufus - I think it would, except for what notactuallygod said in his comment. There could be a downside in inclement weather.

    Tina- Thank you for visiting Roses to Rainbows. Our cats are family, and they even have their own page. This writing challenge has been just that - challenging, but fun and an opportunity to stretch ourselves creatively.

  9. Linda, I need me one of those! :)

  10. I don't think you're running on empty at all. This was actually VERY funny!
