Ahhhh, alliteration - loved it and wonder if you had as much fun writing it as I did reading it! GRIN
This has to be bu a teacher..as I know you are! What fun, but what happened to Megan's m's? I expected her to reappear at a later date, or was this for the children/ adults to find the odd one out? Could be.
I seem to spend too little time digging around, because I completely missed yours, Jan! It's very witty and funny and I can imagine you had a good time writing this one. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Lesley-Anne
Oh Jan, this was priceless. I almost choked on my coffee when I read "Megan stared at the stain. Horrified." I love this mini-challenge. The entries are of such a fun variety.
Hi Jan, What a fun piece to share with all of us out here in writersblock world who are wrestling with witty words wondering when we will win again! I always love to hear from you. Betty OVerstreet
I don't usually like buffets, because I eat too much, but this was just right. Wowza!
Jan... You reQuested a critiQue, I Question why? This is Quite uniQue and has left me in a critiQue Quandry of sorts. So I will Quietly Queep my critiQus comments Quite Quietly to my self for fear of Qreating an offensive Quest...I guess I'm not the only one who gets stir crazy when there is no weekly challenge...Qreat artiQuile...
Quentin quaffed a quart of quinces... loved this line - and I have no idea what a quinces is... overall a tongue twisting treat!
Definitely the next alphabet book best seller. This is full of wonderful alliteration, ripe images, and, in the midst of it all, the stain to which there will probably be ongoing allusions here on FW for a long time to come.
A classic Jan! One of those 'wonderful delights.' I'll bet you had fun. ;)
Will Megan still be staring at stains in the next challenge? Tune in tomorrow, same time, same channel. Loved the entire piece. I gorged myself at the Alphabet Buffet.
I see you've written a sequel to Megan's stain! This is so hilarious AND I LOVE IT! I was wondering where the name "Aloysius" came from. :)...and then enjoying eating emu eggs :)... to AN UNDERCOOKED UDDER! Ha ha! Now for my disappointment... I was sorry you used "Bartholomew" instead of "Beth BaBuff" :)
How delightfully deliciously yummy! This line made me laugh: Esmeralda expected everyone to enjoy eating emu eggs. Then, when I read Megan's line I laughed again! It would make a great poster for Megan's door... ;)
Alas, poor Megan, but you just HAD to put her in here. (an allusion!) For some reason, "Nobody needed nuts." really cracked me up. Maybe it was the juxtaposition to all the other food issues.
Great fun reading it.Good job.
Oh what fun! I also loved Megan (wish I hadn't read your comments so I could have snorted or something too) - and the images are SUPER. I could see this illustrated for upper-elementary-aged boys. :D
Megan stared at the stain, horrified. When I saw that, I laughed out loud. Too clever! You are so creative. This was great. Poor Megan. She will forever be staring at stains.
Ditto on the LOL for Megan...I think I spit on my computer screen! Loved it! Sincerely~Not Karen
I didn't spit at reading 'Meagan...", but I did snot snot bubbles. (Ewww.) and undercooked udder? Umm.... Too funny. :)
