Today's #flashfiction Good Invention, Wrong Place

 “Clothes make the man.”

Have you ever wondered if a “w” gets really drunk and falls over do the other letters mistake for an “m”? Anyway onto the flash fiction!

Good Invention, Wrong Place

         “Come my brothers, my sisters, and all members of the tribe!” The smart nomad Rufflefeather called over everyone. “I have created an invention that will blow your mind!”
The other tribe members gathered and saw that he stood next to a large campfire.
         “It is quite dazzling and bright. Hot too.” The Chief nodded his head as he looked at it.
Rufflefeather danced. “Oh yes, it is! We can dance like this around it and sing! It can be a center of celebration and warmth.”
        The other members of the tribe started laughing and Chief then responded, “I'm sorry but I really don't think it'll work out. Look down.”

         Rufflefeather saw that the part of the ice floe he stood on and built the campfire on melted on the edges and broke off the main piece. He already started to float away. Rufflefeather's invention wouldn't be very practical where he would melt the ice so easily. Rufflefeather jumped into the water and swam back to his tribe kicking his webbed feet, for he was a penguin. It was sad that the brilliant penguin's brilliance would go unappreciated, but what use would a penguin tribe have for a campfire?
