Say Something Saturday

Ami wondered if anyone else would appreciate writing assignments. I was one that thought it would be a cool idea. Well, for one I haven't had much to talk about that I feel to share with others and most of you are probably tired of me writing about my mom. 2nd, I like writing assignments and I thought I would give my oldest this challenge on Mondays to help with his easy writing.
Here is Ami's assignment....You can use humor, be serious, be angst-y, grumpy or optimistic... whatever works for you.
You have a little more than 24 hours to complete this writing task:
In fewer than 500 words, write a story or a poem incorporating the following words in no particular order.
Bubble, box, egg, astounding, heart and match.

*******************************************
As I was walking down the street, this man walked up to me with an astounding look. He had a heart shaped box in his hands. In the sweetest voice he said,please don't be alarmed, but I have been watching you for weeks. A little nervous, I stood there and listened to this tall dark and handsome. Before I knew it hours had past. It was like I had meet my match made in Heaven. As we stood there and talked he told me to open the box. Inside the box was the most beautiful egg you have ever seen. The next thing I know, my fat and balding husband woke me. I asked him in an angry tone, Why did you have to wake me and bust my bubble!

So funny. Great use of the words. I love the idea of giving it to my kids to write during the week. Ami must home school ;-), coming up with the idea of assignments.
