This week Esther Newton challenges us to write a ten-word story which includes five words from the following list:
Here’s my take on it:
Flummoxed, the nincompoop queen licks flip flop, foot in popsicle.
Because I’m incapable of reining myself in, I’ve written an extra one:
“Nincompoop! Hitting the Queen with a hot flip-flop! Jail! Now!”
and then broken the rules by writing a fifteen word story using all of the ten words:
Hot day. Snotty nincompoop throws flip-flop seawards. Splash! Flummoxed queen
drops popsickle. Demands jail. Codswallop!
