There’s Enrichment And Then There’s The Other Thing

‘You ever wonder what dog food tastes like, Logan?’

‘Is this going somewhere?’

‘I saw an old advert, where some dog fooder was enriched with marrowbone jelly…’

‘Oh yeah. PAL.’

‘Okay, mate?’

‘Mate?’

‘If you can call me ‘pal’ then I…’

‘The dog food. It was called PAL. Prolongs active life.’

‘You’re seriously dull. Anyhoo, dog food. Must be good if it’s enriched.’

‘Doesn’t follow.’

‘If you enrich something it’s an improvement.’

‘What about enriching uranium?’

‘Anybody tries to itch my anium, then they’ll wish they stayed in school.’

‘Morgan, you’re a complete wassock.’

‘True, but anyway dog food?’

This was written in response to the latest Carrot Ranch Prompt here

January 10, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes the idea of enrichment. Use many of its different manifestations or explore reasons why it matters to the character. Go where the prompt leads.

  6. I may never be able to face the periodic table again and maintain a straight face. . .
    The lower mid-section has become a smirk-trap. Thanks for that Geoff.
