A drunk Koala
Hardly Bearable by Aussie
Dribble Flash Fiction contest entry

Perched in my favorite tree. Drunk as a skunk, that's me. Eucalyptus leaves my favorite drink. I munch all day then I sleep. Awakened by human clamor, photos galore of me.
Tourists break my alcoholic reverie, point and shout at the bear in the tree.
Hardly bearable, deaf old me.

Author Notes
Contest entry: Koala bears are always drunk or asleep. Exactly 50 words. Tourists always want to cuddle a Koala. They forget they are not a toy. This is fiction I have written, but Koala's are our native animals and now an endangered species.
