Creative Composition

A lot of running around to be done today... so it's again time for a game. Yes, that one.

To entertain ourselves when we used to travel a lot, a friend and I used to come up with very strange stories following the formula found in Berenstains' B Book. We didn't stick to it totally, but tried to keep all nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and verbs starting with the same letter. Some of the letters work better than others, but I'm going to save my favorite for another time.

I'll kick it off, and feel free to follow in the comments. You don't need to use whole sentences... if you only can think of a word that fits, throw it in. No need to keep it clean. Repeat words are not a problem. And in cases like today's letter, a word that starts with a similar sound counts... Ready? Using the letter C:

"Codswallop!" cried Cathy the cross-eyed cheerleader. "Chihuahuas can't crack coconuts!"

Again, it's not a novel... characters may disappear and reappear at will. Just have fun with it!

Central Chad, Cathy's colorful childhood center, contained coconuts, cesspools, and centipedes.

Cathy's countenance crazy, Carlos the Caribbean cockroach cowered in concealment.

"Cathy, cut the craziness", cooed Central Chad....cunningly creeping closer to Carlos the Caribbean Cockroach... Chad cried, "CAAAABOOOM" as his well-heeled cabana crawlers crunched confidently upon Carlos' shiny Caribbean carapace...

... Cathy cuddled Chad warmly.. "Central Chad, my cute, cute cockroach cruncher"... Cathy chirped above the cacophony.... "my Hero"...

"Crap," chuckled Chad as he chucked his choke collar.

"Choose! Choose!" cried Cherry. "Choose charismatic Cherry or the chubby Cathy. Choose cauliflower or caviar."

"Choosing Coors", chuckled Chad, chugging countless consecutive cans.
