One-syllable story
« on: July 31, 2009, 04:26 PM »
My cousin is visiting and she talked about a paper she had to write in Composition class - all one-syllable words.  Wanna try it?




Jen ran through the hall in a snit.  Her voice was gone!

And her speech on corn was due that day.

Jen stomped her foot. "Where could I have left my voice?" she said.

Life just is not fair. But then, who said it would be?

There was a loud knock at the door. "Who could that be?" thought Jen. "I have to write my speech and find my voice. I don't have time for this." Still, she ran to find out who it was.

It was her deaf friend, Dan.
Jen told him what was wrong.
"I know," he said, "You could give your speech in sign."

Jen frowned.
"Or," said Dan, "You could act it out like a mime."

"I know," said Jan.  "You're a doc.  Write me a sick note."
Dan frowned.
"Please?!"

"No way," said Dan. "No good can come from that. You have your job, I have mine."

But there was no time to work it out.  From out of the blue, Huns rode in on tall steeds.
"Stay off the grass!" said Jan.
At these words, the Huns came back with fire balls. 
The steeds stood on the grass and Jan said not a whit more to them.
"Dan?" Jan said.
Dan was gone.

Dan had split. Poof! Jan was stuck with Huns who hurled fire balls. Jan reached in her coat. She kept odd stuff there. She found a can of Huns Be Gone and sprayed it. Now the Huns had a rose scent. The spray killed most germs, too. The Huns blushed and ran. Who wants a Hun who is germ free and smells like a rose?

(Jan meant to spray Raid, but that would have been just fine with the Huns! So it was a good thing she picked the can she did.)

"Oh no!" Jen thought, as she heard the bell.  "The time of my corn speech has come! Now where is my voice?"

POOF! A small man sat on her toe. "Here I am," he said.

"But I came to see the Huns. Where did they go?" said the voice. "Corn is drop dead dull. A voice will not show up for a thing that lame. Huns are cool. Bring back the Huns!"

Jen gave her speech in class, with the help of her voice.  The Huns showed up in class, too.  It turns out the Huns love their corn.
