A Sample Story

As I was giving out candy to children in Halloween costumes this evening, I started “painting” a short story with names of paint samples (highlighted in the text) and my imaginary faces:

Mrs. Pine Nut was considered a bit odd as a middle school teacher.  She liked to wear a small vial of Toasted Pine Nuts around her neck.  They were a reminder of her family tree.

She enjoyed teaching children how to cook and her favorite subject was Spun Sugar:

Mrs. Pine Nut would often keep a little Baggie of the crystallized candy in her desk drawer to nibble throughout her day which tended to make her look strung out…

One day while teaching her class about how to prepare Persimmon pudding –

image

Mrs. Pine Nut got a little Egg White on her face:

image

The children in her class all snickered and Mrs. Pine Nut thought she was being as cool as a Cucumber in her green pants suit:

image

Later when she stepped out of her classroom for some Open Air

image

She discovered to her dismay that she had egg on her face!

She immediately turned a Fabulous shade of Red!

image

Mrs. Pine Nut went home that evening and relaxed with a Berry Red glass of wine –

While watching the Goldfinches in her yard:

image

She suddenly burst out in laughter at her Humorous Green appearance!
