Wallie the Imp has a sharp sweet-tooth, and his favorite holiday season definitely spans from October to December. He loves to go Trick-or-Treating because no one ever suspects him, and he always looks forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner.
Wallie likes Imps. Wallie is an Imp. Perhaps that’s his trouble.
When Wallie heard about the Daily Prompt from the Daily Post—writing nonstop without thinking for ten minutes—he was naturally very excited. He thinks he is a better writer than he is and is always eager to show off.
The problem is, he only writes in Impish.
Wallie the Imp has a relative who visits him on weekends. He is very old and Wallie knows him very well. His visits always make Wallie worry about what it would be like to be an old Imp.
Wallie knows that when you are old you cannot do the same crazy things you did when you were young.
Wallie the Imp and I were walking through campus to meet my Friend. Wallie has a marvelous skill for not being noticed by strangers, so I was able to keep him with me. I daresay everyone thought I was a little off center for walking about speaking rudimentary Impish, but I had out my mobile, my cell phone, as a prop, and that made it all better.
I have never been particularly good at math. I am, however, quite good at watching fantasy-related television. Wallie and I have been enjoying reruns of the show “Once Upon a Time” (a show that endlessly frustrates my Friend, for reasons I will not add even in footnote).
The other day I compelled my Friend to ask Wallie, in Impish, “What is the use of Practical Study?”
