Wednesday Writing Assignment
It's a MadLib. Have fun.

This (time of day) I am very (adjective). I wonder whether I can stay (adjective) for the rest of the (unit of time). It's important that I remain (adjective) today, because I'm at (place), where I must (transitive verb) (plural noun). I'd rather be at the (different place), where at least I could (verb). Instead, I'll be here, writing a MadLib.

This high noon I am very restless. I wonder whether I can stay blase for the rest of the fortnight. It's important that I remain squat today, because I'm at the sidewalk cafe, where I must read tinctures. I'd rather be at the docks, where at least I could fish. Instead, I'll be here, writing a MadLib.

This afternoon I am very bored. I wonder whether I can stay interested for the rest of the next ten minutes. It's important that I remain productive today, because I'm at work, where I must write standard operating procedures, which is every bit as interesting as it sounds. I'd rather be at school, where at least I could make pastry. Instead, I'll be here, writing a MadLib.

Yeah, I know, mine was more of a real-life lib.

Em-MA. C'mon. That's practically what I wrote before I deleted words to make the MadLib.

This hour I am very blue. I wonder whether I can stay intellectual for the rest of the next seventeen minutes. It's important that I remain snappy today, because I'm at Stonehenge, where I must snatch purses. I'd rather be at the farm, where at least I could soak. Instead, I'll be here, writing a MadLib.

You know, I've never liked MadLibs. They don't make any sense. I prefer to have control over my words. Thus, an edit:

This time I am very drunk. I wonder whether I can stay coherent for the rest of the afternoon. It's important that I remain alert, because I'm at Stonehenge, where I must seduce tourists. I'd rather be at the movies, where at least I could take a nap. Instead, I'll be here, trying to be charming without throwing up on their shoes.

Could be better, but a drunk person who has a job seducing (whatever that means) tourists at Stonehenge makes a more intriguing story than...whatever that first version is.

In other words, editing MadLibs is a great writing exercise.

Ann, that's brlliant! Let me edit mine...

This high noon I am very restless. I wonder whether I can stay cool until sundown. It's important that I remain calm today, because I'm at the saloon, where I must watch for the Bandit. I'd rather be at the sherriff's office, where at least I could do my paperwork. Instead, I'll be here, writing a MadLib.

(I see I went about this a bit wrong, and offered only my list. Herewith, the entire kaboodle: )

This afternoon I am very purple. I wonder whether I can stay open for the rest of the month. It's important that I remain hardbound today, because I'm at the bus depot, where I must swallow eggplants. I'd rather be at the school cafeteria, where I at least could swat flies. Instead, I'll be here, writing a Mad Lib.

(Comments: I chose "hardbound" only because this morning when I did this I was mired in a decision over whether a particular book should be in cloth or paper. The idea of swallowing eggplants in a bus depot, like for spare change, as a talent, amuses me. So does the idea of staying open all month.)

I also like the idea of swallowing eggplants at a bus depot. I can picture it happening at the bus depot in Middletown.

This evening I am very tall. I wonder whether I can stay moist for the rest of the millisecond. It's important that I remain belligerent (sp?) today, because I'm at church, where I must change buses. I'd rather be at the laundromat, where at least i could spin-dry. Instead, I'll be here, writing a MadLib.

There: happy now?

Deliriously happy. :)

I like the ambiguity of whether I'm spin-drying (i.e., spinning in a circle until some presumably wet part of me dries off) or spin-drying something that is not me (e.g., clothes).

7:02 PM  
Blogger kStyle said...

Yeah, that's really cool. I also like how spin drying has this dizzy circularity to it, you know? I could use a spin dry today.
