Teaser Tuesday


Rudolfo's sobs could be heard from the trapeze. Ever since Absiddy's confession, he had been beside himself. How could she do it? Renesmee was his sister. Despite her big hair and freaky voice, he loved her. She was the only sister he had. He had been traumatized enough when he'd heard of the freak avalanche that had taken her life while on vacation in the Bahamas, and now to learn that not only was she murdered, but at the hands of his beloved Absiddy! It was just too much. He had to get away.
Putting his unicycle in his pocket, he stalked out of the big top and whistled for Poopsie, his elephant. Climbing on, he patted her head and said, "Well girl, I guess it's just me and you from here on out." With a broken heart and black face paint streaking his face, he headed toward the highway, thoughts of revenge filling his brain. With one last glance over his shoulder toward the tent that had been his home for almost a year, he started on his journey.
He had no idea where to go. Somewhere he was needed. Somewhere he would belong. Somewhere with warm weather and a TGIFridays. Suddenly, he knew exactly where to go. With a new found hope, he turned Poopsie westward. He only hoped Celine Dion could use him in her act.

Poopsie....I think that says it all.

Alicia, you outdo yourself every teaser. This one takes the cake. As much as I love me some Rudolfo, I'm ready for some more of the good stuff.

I can't help but loving the pocket unicycle...could your inspiration be from a certain scrapbooking bag that holds a light table? :)

From the first word on, all I could think of was Buddy the Elf saying "Francisco - that's a fun name!" only he was saying "Rudolfo" in my mind. "Ru-DOLF-o"...

I met a little girl a few years ago named absiddy....except it was spelled like this...'Abcde'. She was only 2 weeks old and born to a teenage mother. I had a hard time believing that she was really named that....so I went to the KGH baby browser to see if they listed her, and sure enough, there she was....Abcde Marie.
