I mentioned in my last blog post that I was working on a spring, 150-word writing contest entry. The goal was to pick a kid-friendly, spring GIF and write a story based on the GIF. After looking through GIF after GIF after GIF (Did I mention that I looked through a million and one GIFs?), I finally found one that made me laugh (I like to think that I’m a kid at heart so kids will like it too, right?).
I should have been sleeping, but I decided to spend some time writing instead. In the end, I’d written a 146-word story.
Hope it brings you some comic relief for these crazy times!
May I present to you:
BIG BROTHER’S BIG CAR WASH PRANK!
Donnie asked for a party. I wanted one, too.
Dad said we must earn it. That made us feel blue.
Donnie had plans. Donnie had dreams.
A pizza party with friends was simple, it seemed.
He’d raise all the money. He’d do all the work.
He’d invite his whole class, even ‘ole Dirk.
He planned a big car wash; a big drive-thru line.
He begged me to help. So, I replied, “Fine!”
We made a huge list. Bought every supply.
We scheduled a test run, to give it a try.
Dad drove his car up, so we’d run it right through.
We’d make it all shiny; even better than new.
I was on hose duty. Donnie on suds.
This was our chance to work out the duds.
I grabbed the nozzle – ‘twas ready to go.
Donnie turned on the water and…
I starred in his show!
