Not every week do we have homework from the Wednesday night Writing Group. This, however, was our latest challenge.
Write as you will using the following words:
flabbergasted - Ookpic - clout - bar - dinosaur - everything was orange - Abbott and Costello
Abbott and Costello were flabbergasted. They couldn’t believe their eyes. Everything was orange in this quaint little pub and to top it off, a dinosaur just strolled through the door. It was heading to what appeared to be his regular spot at the bar.
The dinosaur obviously had clout because nothing and no one had made an attempt to fill that vacancy, until now.
Abbott started to back towards the door as he took in the whole scene. Costello on the other hand was unaware of what was going on behind him. That was until a hush fell over the room and he looked up into the mirror behind the bar; and there was a dinosaur staring him down.
The trance finally snapped.
“Abbott. Hey AAABBBOOOTTTT” Costello hollered as he picked up his Ookpic, floundered off the bar stool, and headed toward the door at an accelerated speed.
“There’s a dinosaur in here!”
“Wait for me.”
“Abbott, Hey AAAABBBOOOTTTT”. Was the last that was heard as the bar door swung shut.
