Click over to whatever website you visit most frequently to get news. Find the third headline on the page. Make sure that headline is in your post.

It was not easy to find a third headline on a page of the websites I follow. I checked the reader and came up with a line I thought I can use it as a headline, this one is by ‘Jen’.

Miss Dotty was having a hard time teaching her class. For some reason these fourth grade students were extremely hyper that day. When nine year old boys and girls are in a playful mood there is nothing any teacher can do to calm them down.

Miss Dotty was not going to give up, she came up with a new topic of discussion in her mind, “Why don’t I ask them what would they like to be when they grow up?”

As soon as she finished speaking, thirty hands went up, some thought if they raise both their hands, the teacher would notice.

Miss Dotty looked around, there at the back of the class William was frantically waving both hands. Well she thought, it’s quite interesting to see William’s hands up. He never participates in any class discussions, she’s got to find out what’s on his little mind.

Well said Miss Dotty, “what do you want to be when you grow up William?”

William stood right up feeling proud of himself that his teacher picked him first.

Miss he said, “can I tell what I told my mother when she asked me what I want to be when I grow up?”

Sure said Miss Dotty, “go right ahead!”

“I said, he swallowed hard  I said: “Mommy! I want to make Whiskey!”

There was silence for a few moments, then little Harry got courageous, he asked: “Miss what is Whiskey?” 🙂

Write about anything you’d like, but make sure the post includes this sentence:

“I thought we’d never come back from that one.”

Harry was known for his evil ways, once he wanted to try how it feels to do something really outrageous, he did things to feel important and in his heart he was sure, he’d never get caught.

One day he visited his classmate Priscilla’s house. He made sure no one was at home, he found out Priscilla’s Mom always left the back door open. He went in through the back door, suddenly he felt extremely hungry,he quickly went to the kitchen to see if there was any food he could eat. He was lucky Mrs. Baker was having some company that day, she did part of her cooking in the morning, she baked a cake for dessert and left it on the table to cool. Harry’s mouth was watering at the sight of the delicious cake.

The fact he was not looking at his mom’s dessert but someone else’s completely slipped his mind, he took out a plate and helped himself to a large piece of the un-iced cake. He felt full but was thirsty so he poured a glass of water, after drinking it, he left it in the sink.

He took a short cut to go home, while walking along he started humming a tune in his off beat voice: “I ate a piece of cake so delicious and soft, I wish I carried another piece to my lovely loft!”

Priscilla happened to walk on the same path, she looked at him and said: “Please don’t sing with your hideous voice, its totally unbecoming!”

Harry ignored her and walked straight home.

Next day Harry invited his friend Jason to accompany him he  felt quite brave. He told Jason about the back door which was unlocked the last time he was there. This time it was locked , Harry told Jason to wait while he looks for a way to get in, luckily the kitchen window was open, he told Jason to wait outside the back door, which he’d open for his friend once he gets in through the window to the kitchen.

He entered the kitchen through the window it was not easy, but nothing is easy in life you have to strive to get what you want, he mumbled.He quickly went to the back door and opened it for Jason to come in.

The plan was to eat what they could and take some home,good plan isn’t it, they looked at each other with a broad smile 🙂

The kitchen table was full of varieties of food, they  were  unable to choose which one they  should try first  and then make up their  mind which smell was more inviting, is it on the left or on the  right. While they were thinking, they heard a click,followed by a bark and footsteps. Both Harry and Jason made a quick run for the back door, luckily no one was there and they were able to get out safely. Harry was breathing heavily, the thought that they were nearly caught made him more nervous.

Jason my dear he said : “I thought we’d never come back from that one!”
