Drabble: Commercial Enterprise

Written for the housemate, who stumbled over certain fannish terminology in the introductory note to my Faith/Giles drabble, to amusing effect. It's possible you had to be there. Regardless, the silliest thing I've ever written.

Commercial Enterprise - Buffy, Willy
It took Willy to explain it to her. “It’s like you got a chihuahua, you know?”

“Only, not a dog,” she said, eyeing the card again. Definitely not a dog.

“Grub, actually.”

Eyebrow.

“What, night creatures can’t have pets?”

“So you have a grub...”

“And you want to fancy it up a bit. A coiffure, if you will.”

“With human hair. From corpses.”

“I always say, there’s no accounting for taste.”

“Right.” She turned and slid her stake loose. “Time for a little business negotiation.” She walked out on his splutter, dropping the card as she went.

Pet hairings, indeed.

Tears of joy! Eep!

Does that mean I should post it to still_grrr? I can't decide.

Hee. Okay. I thought maybe it was, yanno, disrespectful to the prompt. But then, I suppose this is fandom, so...

Thanks for affirming my experiment. *g*

Pet...hairings. Yeesh. TOok me a moment to get it. *groans* Dr. Horrible approves of your spoonerism, because, well...you know.

Because it's evil? (Or is he a fan of spoonerisms? I've only watched that one once.)

Anyway, pleased to make you groan. :)

Hey, it's all the housemate's fault. I just followed the idea to its logical conclusion. *g*
