Sugar Gliders! May not actually taste good with sugar.

Does it taste good with sugar?

Originally I wrote an additional flash fiction story for the March 2008 AbsoluteWrite blog chain, but it really belongs elsewhere, not here. Sorry about that, folks. Sometimes things just don’t work.

Getting on with the blog chain:

The previous posts in this chain are apparently about dogs and other pets. And also children (do they count?). And Gillian Pollack before me also wrote about eating your pets.

I don’t have any pets, thus can’t eat them, and I didn’t want to go into Paper Dragon territory again, so I wrote a bit of Japanese lore flash fiction.

By the way, I love eating animals. Whenever I see a cute widdle animal, like a bunny or a bird (except for crows or pigeons or rats or goldfish, ugh), I wonder: what would that taste like roasted or baked? I’d love to eat some endangered species, except that, you know, they’re endangered. I hear puffin and buffalo are nice to eat. Also ostrich and snake. I really like to eat hearts and, if they’re present, gizzards; just the thickness of muscles, I guess. Fish eyes are yum to me. Although I could never get used to chicken feet.
