Dinnertime Storytelling Prompts #161-164

I was out walking my dog today, and of course I had to pick up after her. (She's a slightly overweight black lab mix.) While I was bent over with the repugnant smell shoving itself in my nose, I thought to myself, "In what world would I NOT have to do this?!" And just like that, I had ideas for some rather disgusting prompts.

For more instructions, refer to the Getting Started post.

#161 - In Dogtopia, being a dog wasn't all it was cracked up to be. It was required that all dogs take care of at least one human. This meant walking them, feeding them, and worst of all, picking up after their nasty messes. Rover didn't want to do it anymore! He had read in Ruff Weekly about how dogs were treated differently on Earth, so he bought himself a one-way ticket and packed a week's supply of bones in his dogcase. How is Rover’s life different on Earth? Is he happy or disappointed with his decision to leave Dogtopia? Does he find a human to care for or one who will care for him?

#162 - Damien refused to eat his boogers. He was the only one in his class who thought it was disgusting to shove your finger in your nose, root around for a thick, juicy booger, and then flick it onto your tongue to enjoy its salty deliciousness. So, he came up with an idea to get everyone to stop. What is Damien's idea? Does he convince them to start a new disgusting habit? Does he create a video showing his classmates what boogers are made of? Does he trick them into thinking the more boogers you eat, the more...?

#163 - Wanda had a weird habit, some would say disgusting. She never intended for anyone to find out. It was an accident really. If Hayley Storm hadn't stolen the ball from her and scored the winning goal, her secret would still be safe. But now, her life would never be the same. She'd always be known as the girl who sucked on her toes at the end of the soccer game. What is the next day at school like for Wanda? Does someone try to make her feel better? Does Hayley make fun of her, or does she reveal a disgusting habit of her own?

#164 - "That's not a sandbox!" Ethan's mom shouted when she caught him digging in Hank's litter box. Of course, Ethan knew it wasn't a sandbox. He was six and smart for his age, or at least that's what he heard all the adults say. And he believed them too, because he had already made close to $100 by digging up cat poop, sculpting it into animal figurines, and then selling them in his sister's Etsy store. What is special about Ethan's figurines that make people want to buy them? Does he only dig in Hank’s litter box? What happens when his mom finds out about his secret business?
