‘The child faced me as I lay there, I searched its visage for some semblance of puppanity, but I found none…’
That quote from this short story proves the non-conformity of this story. It’s not your everyday kind of tale written by your everyday kind of writer. But even though some reviewers find this a strange one, for me it’s definitely not the weirdest I’ve ever read or seen.
No, it’s actually a fun and funny little story about sock puppets having sex and when that leads to the ‘birth’ of a new breed of sock puppet, mom and baby are rejected by Brad, the male sock puppet. But love is stronger and when a sock puppet sets its mind to something, there’s no escaping it!
I applaud originality and little quirky tales with a new twist… so this was pretty good. I also enjoyed the wordplay very much. All this made for a very refreshing short story.
Now, where did I leave my socks? I hope they didn’t mate…
