ANNOUNCEMENT: There will be an update in the 2nd Grade Thursday Sweet Treat project today. More info to come.
Welcome to Monday! Mondays are notoriously dreaded days as no one ever wants to return to work after the weekend. What we all need is a little fun, a little enjoyment, and a little reading to brighten our day.
Please read the following stories written by artists and writers who rose to the challenge and created an adventure story using only 20 words! Then, leave them a little love as this is just great work!(There may be additional entries later today so please check back :)
If it’s Tourist Season, Why Can’t I Shoot Them?
"The sign says, “Dangerous Hill – Bikes Caution”. I ignore it, brakeless, blissful. Suddenly , a tourist – damn, brakes applied."
A bit of background from Kelly: I live on a small island in northern Michigan, where cars are prohibited. We get around by foot, horse or bicycle. Our only industry is tourism, six months of the year we live in splendid isolation and the other six we are inundated with tourists from all over the world. It's a mixed blessing, without them we can't make a living and most are very pleasant folks but there are day's we could gladly do without them!
"Skydive. Climb Himalayas. Take a risk--any risk." Karen slammed her diary shut. Tomorrow, she'd stop dreaming and start doing.
"The balloon climbed bands of color, danced among clouds, and they watched people below disappear as a lifetime adventure began."
"Reading other peoples' stories familiar urges took hold. How long could a cubicle contain the blood coursing through her veins?"
