We had another edition Game Time poetry last week, where we asked you to describe a television show in haiku form. After a close vote, Meg wins with her ode to Tony Micelli. Unfortunately, her last line was "Who IS the boss?" which is only four syllables, as opposed to the required five. So, we have to strip her of her title, so soon after victory. To symbolized our mourning, there will be no winner this week. Tragic.
Speaking of tragedies, today is Halloween. BOO! Last Halloween, we had a pretty successful Game Time contest, where you had to write a scary story. We will reprise that game.
Write a Halloween story (50 words or less) that begins “They told me not to go down the alley…”
To give you an idea of what a story is, here is ours:
They told me not to go down the alley. But what did they know? It was late, but I was feeling brave. I crept down the alley. Then, my heart froze. I realized they were all right. It was a dead end! So, I turned and left the alley.
Ooh! Having to double back! Scaaary! Think you can do better? We hope so. Post your stories below.
