Today I face another Raven's Challenge.
The words for this week's ten word challenge were: Chorus line, clam chowder, apples, jack-in-the-box, puddles, Iran, quarry, housekeeping, speed, letter For the mini challenge:motorcycle, grandiose, summer, flying off the handle, blue jays
The next few moments made William wish that he could bring in a chorus line to rejoice.The penguin encased in the clear plastic box sprung out of it like a jack- in box. The attitude of the penguin as he moved around the room just out of the reaches of the polar bear, was one of ah ah I fooled you. With the penguin released, the polar bear wanted nothing more to do with the panther, William and the penguin, so with great speed he departed the barn, and headed for the quarry.
William wondered what had transpired at the Toy Shop. He began his trip back, walking now, but with the panther and penguin. He was tired and didn't bother to walk around the puddles. He also became aware that he was very hungry and a bowl of clam chowder would taste great. Passing by an apple tree he reached for an apple on a lower branch, and pulled it off. As hungry as he was the bitter taste did not deter him from eating it.
Arriving at the Toy Store, he found a letter taped to the door, addressed to him. Sandy explained how they caught the multi-colored hooded sweatshirt man, and had taken him to the police station.
He went into the store noticing that it needed some housekeeping. He did not volunteer to do it, but went to the police station meeting Sandy and Stan. Sandy wanted to run over and throw her arms around her penguin, but she figured that would detract from her creditability since the officers could not see a penguin, or panther or llama. The only information that Sandy could give William about the man they caught was he was not Polish but from Iran.
It was summer,with twittering blue jays and finches, and Terry Fox could ride his bike and play for as long as he liked. As he drove to the playground he had a grandiose day dream that he was riding a motorcycle and was Evil Knievel, suddenly the balloon he had tied came flying off the handle startling him.He lost control of the bike and he fell to the ground causing a scrapped knee. He thought to himself as he inspected his bike at least I am not going to the hospital as Evil has done many times.
