The Sunday Scribblings prompt for this week is "Dragons".
Yes I believe in Dragons! They are real they do exist and I have seen them.
We have real live dragons here in Australia. Maybe they are the evolved cousins of the mythical dragons of medieval times. Here in Canberra there are is a colony of water dragons living in the botanical gardens.
Long long ago dragons, their ancestors, ruled the world. They flew the skies and ran the land. Even our australian plant life has evolved to regenerate itself after the fires those dragons made in their anger. Then there was the war and the olden day dragons were subdued. The clever men worked their magic and turned them all into the dragons we have here today. They were shrunk down to a managable size and made to always live near water where their firey breath would be sated. They sit on the rocks above the waterfall in the botanic gardens here in Canberra, heads raised watching for the clever men to return and scuttling away through the undergrowth when humans come within sight and hide there in safety. On cooler days they sun themselves on the rocks, but they never stray too far away from the water that soothes their parched throats and cools their sunburned skins. If you can get close enough you can see their skins are marked with red and orange patches, to remind them of their violent past. The clever men painted them to remind them of it.
Hahaha my imagination is running riot with this prompt. Love it.
No that was not an aboriginal legend.
There are other dragons that exist in our world today. They are usually thought of as the female kind. I guess there are lots of males around too, but they are more sneaky in their practices.
The female dragons of today are found in the workplace. Trying to assert their dominance over the other workers. I have found through my observations and experience with these types of dragons that if you bite them back, stand up to their games and tell them so they actually start to respect you for doing so. If you are a bit of a wimp like me you need to stew over it and plan the event and think it all out well, you have to know just how that dragon will react and allow for that. Don't back down, stay in charge, hold your head up and walk away calmly after the event.
Ah the games dragon people try to play with you. They feel they must, at all costs, dominate.
Did you know these workplace dragons are the actual decedents of mutant cross breeds dating back to medieval times. Their personalities are directly derived from the genes they still carry from long ago.
Hahahaha. Love this prompt, I am having fun here.
I can't wait to see Granny Smith's response.
Watch out for those workplace dragons!
