Creative Copy Challenge #73
BET YOU CAN’T take the 10 random words below and, in the comments, create a cohesive, creative short story tying all the words together! And remember: after (if) you finish, highlight your words and click the bold button to make them stand out and help you determine if you forgot any words. (If you’ve missed some challenges, we BET YOU CAN’T do those, either.)
Here we go, in order again. Now I am caught up to where I stopped contributing last week.
There was a thud, and then a pop, as the pendulum fell off the top of the piano on to the linoleum.
Mom had always been very fond of the old pendulum and piano, which gave the small cheap apartment an air of elegance.
Before she could become hysterical, I stifled a smidgen of a giggle and made an intonation, that in retrospect I should have not tried.
My lack of singing ability only made Mom mourn the loss of her reminder of her musical talents that much more.
Sometimes it is better to leave things as they are, for you can almost always make things worse somehow.
