FALL WRITING FRENZY 2022 !!!!!!

Updated: Oct 2, 2022



Welcome to my first ever blog. It only (ha) took me three days to figure out how to even make a blog post (have I figured out how to do this? The jury is still out...). It's been a worthwhie endeavour -- now I can post my entry to the Fall Writing Frenzy contest (sorry I don't know how to make a link)! I'm thankful to Lydia Lukidis (nope don't know how to link her name), Katilyn Sanchez (hers either) and Alyssa Reynoso-Morris (you guessed it, no link).


I decided to go silly with this one......I hope you find it humorous!

(I'd put a funny halloween-y emoji here, but you already know...I don't know how to do that.)

They’re gonna do it to me AGAIN!


I know the clues.


The days get short.


The air gets crisp.


Pumpkins perch on porches.


Bags of candy appear, get sorted, get eaten.


This year will be different.


I’m gonna hide.


They’ll never find me.


Maybe in the closet way up high, to the left of the luggage and the


right of the raincoats.


Maybe in a drawer, beneath the purple pajamas and behind the stinky socks.


Shhhh…


Fiddlesticks! I hear footsteps! They’ve found me!


The indignity!


The humiliation!

The NERVE!


I’m a courtly CAPE, not a commonplace COSTUME!


What will I be tied around this time?


A skeleton?


A witch?


A pumpkin?


NOOOOOO!


It’s a DOG! ! A FRENCH BULLDOG kind of dog!


They’re putting ME on a FRENCHIE!


I’ll smell!


I’ll get crumpled!


I’ll get dirty!


I’ll show them…


I won’t let them iron my wrinkles.


I won’t let them tie my bow.


I won’t let them….


Slurp


Slobber


Slop


Hey Frenchie! Your licking me is tickling me!


Your fur is silky and you surprisingly smell stupendous!


Scamper


Scurry


Smile


Riding on you is fun!


Let’s go scare some children!


(Just don't drool on me!)


BOO!!!!
