I decided to take another class from the teacher….Jenny Matlock. She hosts Alphabet Thursday and this summer it has been Rainbow Summer School. This one is called Saturday Centus. To be honest, I don’t know what Centus actually means. It isn’t in my online dictionary and I consider myself pretty word savvy too…ha.
But anyway, I am jumping in the fray to challenge myself and practice writing. Here are her instructions….but I chose to write about last summer.
WEEK 16 ASSIGNMENT
Do you remember how during the first week back at school the teacher would make you write an essay about what you did over yoursummer vacation? Well, school has been in session almost two weeks here so I thought we’d try this for something different.
Your story must be written in first person AND must be exactly 100 words long. It can be fact or fiction.
Exactly 100 words, first person, fact or fiction…What I did over my Summer Vacation. AND What I did over my Summer Vacation is the title of your essay not to be included in the 100 words!
WHAT I DID OVER MY SUMMER VACATION
We met outside the airport sporting red, white and blue. My anticipation was palpable and I was on the verge of tears or hysterical laughing.
We made our way to the front of the line. I think we numbered 25. We held signs and flags and smiles and love and respect and awe and gratitude. Mostly gratitude. The kind that a mom feels when her child escapes a tragedy. Gratitude when a hero is in the room.
And the doors slowly opened. Camoflauge poured through them. Thank you for your service.
Then I saw him, my son, home from Iraq.
So, if you want to see more 100 word stories or participate yourself, here is the link:
