Fiction Friday: [In Defense of Kitten Mittens]

[This week's Fiction Friday is an exercise I've seen around the old internet. It involves writing a story using only dialogue. Nothing else. Just dialogue. Enjoy]


“I don’t get it. Why would you want to put socks on the cat?”

“Not socks…mittens.”

“Because that makes it better?”

“No…ahhh…you just don’t understand. You have to watch the episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Charlie makes a commercial for Kitten Mittens…”

“Okay…literally the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.”

“No…it’s hilarious. Anyway, he puts them on the kitten and it tries to walk, but it’s like it forgot how to use its paws or something. It’s seriously one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.”

“So, what you’re really saying is that you want to make Mr. Binks look like an idiot.”

“No…you’re just not getting it.”

“Yeah, sorry. I don’t get why you want to torture my cat.”

“It’s not…ugh…look, we’ll just watch the episode and you’ll see.”

“I couldn’t be more excited.”

“Yeah, I can tell.”

“Anyway, I’m going to be late for work. Love you.”

“Love you, too.”

“Oh, and you better leave my cat alone…I’m serious. Don’t traumatize my cat.”

“Alright, alright…geez.”


“Psst, Mr. Binks…come see what I have for you…”
