Raven, from "Views from Raven's Nest" has offered up a challenge that she calls "wordzzles". She gives us between 8 and 10 words/phrases and we are asked to create a small but coherent paragraph using each and every word. This is my second attempt at this. It's fun!
The words for this week's 10-word challenge are:
Green green grass of home
Mr. Crow was getting really angry now. (yes crows get angry). He flew down and swooped the spaghetti off of the plate of the two young lovers at the outdoor cafe, flew with it all the way home, only to get it all tangled up in the larkspur blooming under his tree! Damn, where was his Prilosec when he needed it?
Mrs. Crow was adamant about having spaghetti tonight. So much so she scarred every bird from the tree by screeching like a roaring lion: "Hey Crowdaddy...I see you've gotten our dinner all tangled up in that thar larkspur again"! Her filibuster on the subject made Mr. Crow reach for his Prilosec again!
"Oh", Mr. Crow lamented, "What I wouldn't give to see the green, green grass of home once more". "Wait a minute", he thought, "wouldn't I'd rather see the green, green leaves of the trees?" Such a paradox! This got him thinking back to his youth, watching the humans trout fishing along the shore and waiting to pounce on their catch. He sighed in contentment.
He was suddenly snapped out of his daydream by a face-creamed Mrs. Crow demanding her spaghetti dinner!!!!
