Notes: Nope, didn't happen this hour. No whoosh of reading progress...but oh well. I've got an hour of work then four more of reading :) I'm going to switch to a different book.

Story Mini-Challenge :

Write a story 100 words or less that contains ALL of the following words:

Shaman
Lime
Laser
Goat


A few years ago I went on a trip to Scotland and met a Shaman named Jim-Bob. Jim-Bob was my unofficial tour guide on the trip. He was cool, but Bob had a major problem.
He had a giant goat that followed him everywhere he went! This was no ordinary goat, mind you. This goat had a laser beam that would shoot out a lime flavored salt! This was horrible for his Shamanic tour guide business, but perfect for making margaritas! So instead of the tour, Jim-Bob invited me to his bar and we partied all night! Scotland (and Jim-Bob's laser goat) ROCKED!

  1. It's hard to read while you're at work; I have my Grandbebe Girl Makayla with me, so I've taken breaks to feed her, read to her, and encourage her to USE the potty chair! :)

  10. Hope you're enjoying the read-a-thon. I managed to finish Queen By Right and even wrote the review (because I had to...LOL). I can't ever get the wordle to work for me. =O( Someday I'll figure it out. Are you continuing tomorrow? I'm going to try!
