Saturday Wordzzle # 29



The idea is, every week Raven (View From A Raven's Nest) gives you between 8 and 10 words/phrases and you have to create a small but coherent paragraph using every one of them and the same with the mini challenge. You can do either, both or a megawordzzle using all the words, or even all three, it's up to you, you can post them on your blog or email them to Raven. If you join in go to Raven's and put your name on the Mr. Linky so other participants can come visit you.



Here are my efforts - complete with my doodles.


This Week's Ten Word Challenge is: invincible, falling leaves, two-year-old, fusion, grizzly bear, Jamaica, delivery, popsicle stick, caviar, lap-top




Jane’s two year old, Amy, was like a grizzly bear today. Jane had tried bribing her and it worked for a while, but now Amy was crying again holding the empty popsicle stick aloft. Jane had just taken delivery of her new lap-top and was trying to book a holiday online in Jamaica, as a surprise for her husband, Marvin The Invincible, a DJ who played fusion music in the nightclub ‘Falling Leaves’. Nibbling on a biscuit piled high with caviar, Jane decided to abandon the search for a holiday and take Amy to the park to shut her up.



And for the Mini Challenge: toad stool, liquid lunch, counting sheep, manacles, Jurassic Park




Bronto Sauras sat on the giant toad stool in Jurrasic Park. He was counting sheep and trying not to think about not being able to eat them because he was in manacles and couldn't reach them. He was making do with a liquid lunch of frog spawn today.



Megawordzzle



Jamaica Fusion, the famous palaeontologist, was enjoying a liquid lunch when the call came. This was the invitation he’d been waiting for, a chance to excavate the prehistoric remains that had been discovered in British Columbia, home of the Grizzly Bear.



Sitting on the plane he booted up his lap-top, he didn't want to watch the movie that was showing, Jurassic Park was just a load of crap as far as he was concerned. He perused the information he’d been sent online, the find looked fascinating, he couldn’t wait to get started. There was just him and a woman in a seat across the aisle in business class, but thankfully she was counting sheep so he was able to work quietly. The woman stirred as delivery of the in-flight meal was imminent and he placed his lap top on the next seat.



The lunch was a gourmet meal, as he was travelling business class, caviar, filet mignon, wild mushrooms, seasonal vegetables, followed by tiramisu, cheese and biscuits and of course champagne. During the meal the woman introduced herself as Wynona Cartwright, the mother of a two-year old, travelling to visit her mother who was ill. Jamaica dismissed most of the meal, just managing to eat the cheese and biscuits whilst trying to ignore the woman’s mutterings which were beginning to grate. As the cabin crew cleared away the remnants of the meal he turned to see Wynona trying to pick her teeth with a popsicle stick, minutes later she was out of her seat ripping up her magazine and scattering the pieces about the cabin like falling leaves. He looked on in amazement as she stood on her seat and began to beat her breast calling to him “Me Jane, you Tarzan”. She’s mad, he thought, and promptly pressed the button to summon one of the cabin crew. A stewardess arrived and asked Wynona if she needed anything.


“Of course I don’t need anything” said Wynona “I’m invincible!”


Rushing to the galley the stewardess returned with two other members of the cabin crew and by this time Wynona was heading towards the curtain that separated business class from first class. Grabbing Wynona’s arms the crew steered her back to her seat but she was fighting them like a lioness defending her cubs. They wrestled her to the floor and locked the manacles onto her wrists behind her back, by this time Wynona was foaming at the mouth. Thankfully there was a doctor on board who, after examining Wynona, was able to administer a sedative.



All thoughts of work had disappeared from Jamaica’s mind and he was relieved that it was only a matter of about 30 minutes before they were due to land. The doctor stayed by Wynona’s side, to make sure she didn’t take a turn for the worse, until he handed her over to the paramedics who were waiting on the tarmac.



On his return journey a month later, Jamaica was amazed to see Wynona on the same flight. She looked perfectly normal so he asked


“Hello, do you remember me from the flight out here?”


“Of course, how are you?” she asked


“More to the point, how are you?” said Jamaica “you weren’t very well last time I saw you!”


“Oh, I’m fine now” she told him “turns out the mushrooms on that gourmet meal were in fact magic toad stools!”

Krimo said...

Great ten-word-challenge!
When I saw the words, I had a completely different story in mind. It's like giving 10 ingredients to a few chefs. They'll all end up with totally different dishes.

Akelamalu said...

Aw thanks Acey x

Hi Krimo nice to see you back! What a good analogy and you're totally right! :)

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Excellent! As usual.

BTW, how long does it take you to produce a Wordzzle post?

Akelamalu said...

Cheers Nick. It can take anything from 1 - 2 hours depending on how the old grey matter is working.

Akelamalu said...

PS Nick that's for all three, then I have to do the doodles!

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

An hour or two for all three? Hmmmm... I may give it a try one day. That's less time than I usually put into a blog post, even the photo posts.

Akelamalu said...

Nick once you've done your first it gets easier and it really is good fun. I hope you join in. Go over to Raven's blog for the words for next week.

Melli said...

TopChamp said...

You are amazing at this!! I enjoyed reading all three stories.

Chatty said...

Oh, wow! I loved them all! That last one was a hoot - although, toadstools notwithstanding, the description of the business class menu has me salivating...
Thank you for your kind words about my first efforts - I already had a sneaking suspicion these things was be addicting before you confirmed it.
And, how did you get your cursor to be a butterfly? I love that.

Travis said...

Loved the middle one, but of course they are all excellent as usual.

Deb said...

I kept wondering how you were going to pull off the ending - and you did it perfectly! I am impressed that you complete these in 1-2 hours. Well-done! Liquid frog spawn - creative! I also love your doodles. You are talented on the computer - I am envious :)

Carletta said...

Wow - that ten word is so concise -someday I may get there. :)
Your mega ending was superb. I must admit I was thinking as I read what's she going to do this time as if you were just going to keep on writing for me to read - nicely done.

Robin said...
