I met a man yesterday; he seemed quite debonair, and even thought I sensed something quite devious about him, I went to him with open arms. In my defense, Iíve been trying to be more defiant lately, since a technician drilled through my water pipes, and I was too afraid to report the dastard to his superiors. We went on a date, and I asked him to walk me home. Really, I told him, Iím starting to depend on people to walk with me, since Iím afraid of the darkness. He kissed me, saying I was just delicate, and during our walk, he told me that he was head of his department for the city water services; did I have anything to tell him?

(This is my absolute favourite so far, I can't help giggling whenever I read it over =P )

You're right - they're silly - but FUN silly! This would be a great vocabulary exercise for middle-school kids!

Thank you, Alice! I was afraid they'd be a little too goofy to post, but they're fun to write =P I'm thinking if I ever have kids to home-school, I might try getting them into it too
