Three Word Thursday


Quilly is at it again! Handing out old words and challenging us to use them creatively! Well, everyone wanted Adam to be part of the problem, so here it is!

Adam sat at the lunch table and stared at the sandwich Mrs. Carmody had packed for him. As usual, the peanut butter was so spiscious that he knew it would dwarf the taste of the jelly. He decided to pitch it and go get something from the vending machine. Pulling money out of his pocket that he had liberated from the teacher’s purse, he realized that he could suffarcinate on carbs and sugar. He eagerly searched the choices behind the glass only to find that nothing looked the least bit appealing. Some do-gooders had gotten to this machine and required them to offer healthy stuff. Adam’s tristifical response to this final insult caused heads to turn as he flung himself down on the floor howling. When Adam felt adult hands pulling him to his feet, he snapped. He wrenched himself free, took off running down the hall, went out the front door, and disappeared through the back yards across from the school.

Thank you Anthony! My mom was one of those who led the campaign to get soda machines out of the school lunch rooms. My poor brother was still in school at the time.

Oh boy. Poor Adam! My heart's completely with him, thanks to this &$£%&! diet I'm on.

*sigh*

A great little story and so very real.The words were worked in so well.

SouthLakesMom said...

Susan, I don't think he snapped because of the lack of carbs and sugar...but I might be wrong! Ha ha

Dr. John - thank you! For some reason it jumped into a small story today. The dragons will be pleased.

Poor Adam -- I imagine he is very confused and hurt.

A wonderful small story and it was small. We are so happy.
It shows people the way people are.
Good use of the words.

I am jealous that you got to see West Side Story before it hit Broadway. I got to be the vocal director last spring when my high school did it. It was so much fun to work on.

Well done. I can't figure out Adam now. He steals hmmmm. He sounds like the boy that cried wolf
