Lets try to create an entertaining read by one instruction. What you write should be brief but still interesting as each entry can only be written on one line. I am starting with:

I was late for an appointment. My mobile was ringing. It was a teacher from my son's school.

"We can't find your son," he said. "We searched everywhere. Please come down, now!"

My stomach clenched, and my mind churning up 'what could've happened..?' thoughts; I shoved through crowds of students and thundered into the principal's office.


("Rugelach," tx for starting this. I love it. Can we pls. have max. 2 lines? One line is rather tight.

Strangely, the entire parent body was squished into the principal's office. I prayed this was a belated Purim shtick.

I was re-playing in my mind if there was any sign in my son's behaviour prior to this morning that I didn't pick up on but nothing came to mind

We all started searching in every classroom, basement, yard, basically every nook & cranny

Chaos. People yelling son's name. Desks shoved aside. Chairs knocked over. Running. Doors banging. Something smashed. Only I couldn't move. It was like I'd become a statue. And then I spied...

Two green eyes sticking out from behind a potted plant in the principal's office.

But that wasn't the strangest thing. The thing that really made me gasp and blink furiously to clear my vision was the glistening purple antenna snaking through the window.

A screech from metal scratching across tiles, made me whirl around. A masked face was peering around the doorway. Two black fearsome eyes flashed through the eye holes. Before I could shriek...

Friends and family jumped out from different hiding spots, my son included. "Happy Birthday!" they cheered. The problem was that it wasn't my birthday.

The vice-principal walked over to me. She smiled. "Congratulations! Mrs. Rugelech. Every year the school chooses the parents of a student to head the color-war. This year we've chosen you & your husband.

I was shell-shocked. We're the kind of parents who stayed under the radar. Who would have nominated us? I wondered. And what happens now?

It's a fake out after all. This school apparantly only has color war break out but no real color war

Feeling awfully disappointed and self-conscious, I decided to be a respectable leader. I instituted the first real color war, with teams Cholent and Herring.

The next morning. The secretary's voice crackled through the intercom, "all students from grades 5 to 9, please gather in the assembly room after lunch recess. Thank you. "

What? end of story?
Wow! "Dankbar," I must commend you - you're to the point and get things done.

But doesn't any of the readers wanna know what went on from when the teams were announced until the winning team was announced?

Perhaps, it's me, I don't have enough excitement in my life. I wanna read about the boys preparing for color war. The excitement. The pressure. The momentum building up.... something that goes wrong during the preps. How it's resolved.
Emotions - there's sure to be jealousy to the one who got a large part, or the one who's coming up with amazing ideas. Tinge of anger. Admiration. Some fights. Cheering. Laughing.
Paint splatters. Building props = boys hammering nails into what they're building. The always shy boy timidly suggests an idea and everyone loves it - his until then hidden talent is revealed. He blossoms.
The team leaders trying to pull it all together with their groups of rowdy active boys.

I can go on and on, but I won't bore y'all.

Well, at least the story tied up neatly.

Now, what did y'all learn from this story? Wink

Next story. "Rugelech, Ahoy! are you on? Since you started this delightful thread we give you the honor of starting another story.
Can't wait.
Sorry, I'm a literary fan.
