Is it because you hate Dr. Seuss?

Remember way back in the dark ages of my blog, when to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Green Eggs and Ham, I wrote this post: Green Eggs and Ham, Brushing my teeth, and “boogies.”?

Well, in this post I decided I was going to write a post Dr. Seuss style, using only fifty words- just like he did with Green Eggs and Ham.

It was YOUR JOB, people, to give me the word suggestions. I did not get fifty words from you, so this is your not so gentle reminder of how you’ve failed me.

I’m throwing the gauntlet down again.

My list is incomplete. Here is what I have so far:

the  aardvark  guitar  floating  shovel  and  us  fairy  sings  jump  purple pancake  grateful a  I  do

So here are the rules: I’ll write a story using only fifty words of 5TH GRADE LEVEL AND BELOW. Leave a comment below with your word suggestion.

No words like “pulchritudinous”, yeah you know who you are.

Let’s get on this…

I’m starting to think you guys hate Dr. Seuss.


PS- I wrote today over at The Truth About Motherhood. Deb is celebrating her 2nd blogiversary so go visit her.

My post is called: It hurts like a mother. Go read it now.
