Daily Prompt – JusJoJan the 9th, 2022 Unicorn

It’s been a while since I took part in Linda’s JusJoJan month-long prompts, but, since I vowed to be creative, here goes!

It’s January 9th, so this is the 9th prompt for Just Jot it January 2022, and it’s brought to us by Astrid. Thank you, Astrid! Please be sure to visit her blog to read her post and say hello. And follow her while you’re there if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 9th, 2022, is “unicorn.” Use the word “unicorn” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

I think my daughter just missed the whole unicorn mass hysteria, that the little girls out there seem to be experiencing, right now.

Mind you, she’s always been her own person, and even if others were crazy about something, she would decide not to be a follower It was the same with Frozen – she never got into that. Even at 6! And One Direction. Whist others in her class were singing their songs and being all cutesy about who they loved best, she was not interested. Instead, she did a performance of Why Does Every Princess Need To Have a Prince, with some friends at the end of the year talent show.

A real independent woman with a bit of a feminist thrown in there!

Anyway, I digress…

Unicorns. I have a couple of girls in my class, right now, with those hats that have long extended sides, that end with mitten like gloves, and they are designed like unicorns.

Another one joined the unicorn fray, well, so I thought until I questioned her lovely, light-grey unicorn hat.

“It’s not a unicorn, Mrs Bhathal. It’s a narwhal!”

She reminded me of my fiercely independent girl sitting at home.

We ended up doing a little google search to look at pictures of real narwhals, that afternoon.

Why not be a narwhal in a see of unicorns, eh!

February 22 – Flash Fiction – Unicorn

Charli’s prompt this week:

February 22, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a unicorn. It can be realistic or fantastical. Go where the prompt leads.

“A unicorn? You want a unicorn?” Sarah turned from her daughter and looked at her ex-husband, Peter, rolling her eyes. “Honestly, it’s like living with Verruca Salt! She thinks she can demand anything, and that you’ll get it! How are you going to handle this one? They’re not even real!”
She was fed up of her daughter’s unrealistic demands, and the fact that Peter, anxious to score Best Parent points, would always succumb to the demands.
Peter just smiled and said “No problem, my Princess!” and hastily typed Unicorn into the Amazon search bar. Amazon sold everything after all!
