I went to check the awful noise coming from the water tank, just past the bus shelter.
Suddenly my boot sank deep into a warm pile of what seemed to be cow flop. I could tell it was recent by the steam still coming up.
At that point the volume of the thrumming started to swell, and change to more of a low mooing. For the life of me, I couldn’t think how a cow could get in there.
I decided to ignore the stink and look into the cistern. To my surprise, I did not see a cow, but rather a unicorn, which I coaxed out gently. It was so grateful that it touched me with its horn and told me it would grant one wish.
Not thinking too clearly, I said, “I wish my wife could see me now.”
“Granted.”, said the unicorn, which vanished and left me with my wife yelling to clean off my footwear before walking on her clean floors.
Sometimes things turn out much different from you would think.
