For me, writing is exploration; and most of the time, I’m surprised where the journey takes me.
I’ve always loved Mad Libs so when I found this site, it reminded me of how much fun words can be.
The Funny Terror Of The Snow
It snowed a foot overnight. When they woke up, Sam and Mary went out to play. First, they made snow angels. Then they had a snowball fight and Sam hit Mary in her leg with a big scary iceball. It hurt a lot, but Sam kissed it happily and then it was all better.
Then they decided to make a snow man.
“We’ll make a really damp snow man!” Sam said.
“Why don’t we make a snow woman instead?” Mary said. “That would be more gray and politically correct.”
“I know,” Sam said. “We can make a snow dog. That way, we don’t have to worry about gender politics.”
So they rolled the snow up crazily and made an iridescent snow dog. Sam put on a boat for the elbow. The dog was almost as big as Mary.
“It looks old,” Sam said merrily. “But it seems like it’s missing something.”
“Here,” Mary said and held up an obtuse car. “I found this on a rock.” She put the car onto the dog’s head.
It was perfect. For about a minute. Then the dog, even though it was just made of snow, started to move and growl like a banana that has lost its appeal.
Mary screamed dangerously and ran but the snow dog chased her until she tripped over a tree root. Then the snow dog kicked her huskily.
“Nobody does that to my little Cold Book,” Sam screamed. He grabbed an icicle and stabbed the snow dog through the arm. It fell down and Sam kicked it apart until it was just a bunch of snow again.
“You saved me!” Mary said and they shared an embrace in the snow before going in for hot chocolate.
The car lay in the yard until a skinny child picked it up and took it home.
Today have fun with words.Now get back to work.
