Independence

 

Sammy hesitated on the edge of the wall. Though he’d always wanted to attend the big Independence celebration he was suddenly terrified. ~ 136

Word of the Week: expedient

 

Hungry as Sammy was he waited for the loud man to turn his back. Waiting wasn’t the most expedient route to food but it was the safest. ~ 136

Having missed the height requirements for all the rides Sammy hoped at least one of those funny t shirts came in his size. ~ 122

    All three are very good, I hope he gets to see the fireworks! :)

    Aw, you’ve actually managed to make the darn thing sound cute! Nice microfiction–I enjoyed them!

    These are both SO clever! Kudos to you for the use of expedient. Jerry and I both laughed at the t-shirt one. Great job!

    Ha! Loved them. I am just picturing suitable T-shirts now!

    You were definitely three for three this week (my favorite is #3…)

    Must be so depressing to realize that even when you are fully grown, you’ll never meet the height requirement. On the other hand, I sure hope Sammy never gets that big!
