This week Esther Newton’s challenge is to write a ten word story which includes the following five words!:
I couldn’t resist it, and have written a dialogue, a story and a poem (of sorts).
“Why so pensive, Obama?”
“The ventroquist stole my maraca. Flabbergasted!”
Obama ducked, flabbergasted. The ventriloquist, pensive, retrieved the maraca.
Pensive, Obama the ventriloquist plays maraca.
Flabbergasted, his subjects stare.
