The Alpaca

In the village of Gumberadika lived an alpaca named Gerard. Gerard was like any other alpaca, he enjoyed knitting and reupholstering furniture. One day, in the middle of reupholstering a love seat, he was watching TV when he saw a Geico commercial. He saw the Geico Gecko walking across Brooklyn Bridge, and immediately he wanted to hangout with the Geico Gecko. So Gerard set out to get to New York. He tried to get a plane ticket but alpacas aren't allowed to fly on planes. So Gerard had an idea, he would by balloons and use them to get to New York. So he goes to the store and buys a helium tank and 563 balloons. He reached that specific number through extensive research whilst watching Goodwill Hunting.  So Gerard came home and inflated all the balloons and with the help of his friends they tied them around him. And he was on his way! He floated over the states, and slowly but surely reached New York. But he didn't think this plan all the way through because he didn't have a way to get down. So he started calling out to pigeons and seagulls. And they come to his aid, one by one popping his balloons and he lands gently on Brooklyn Bridge. Causing a massive traffic jam and people freaking out cause an alpaca came out of the air surrounded by a swarm of pigeons and seagulls and landed on the bridge. Gerard set out to find the Geico headquarters. He walked around the city, stopping to try local hot dog stands and falafel carts. He finally made it to the Geico building and as luck would have it, the Geico Gecko was outside smoking a cigarette. Gerard ran up to him and they high fived. Gerard told him of his adventure and became the sidekick of the Geico Gecko in all future commercials and eventually became the go to alpaca in Hollywood.
