How Younique - Challenge #2!

Part of what makes scientific research work is participation!!!  Five lovely people stepped up for Challenge #1.  Let's see if we can double it for Challenge #2!  (And maybe Challenge #2 will be more appealing to you :))

For any of you who might not have read the comments, the responses to Challenge #1 were as follows:

1.  I never expected that one day I'd open my closet and find...
     ... a raccoon eating my underwear.
     ... a kangaroo napping.
     ... an eyebrowless gnome in an angel sweater, her pendulous stomach being balanced on tiny knees.
     ... a doorway to another world.

2.  It was obviously going to be an unusual day when my mom came into the bedroom and said...
     ..."Get up, princess!  Your prince is arriving at the west gate."
     ... "Are you ready to make a mess?"
     ... "Grab a diaper for your sister and your pirate eye patch and come with me."
     ... we were moving to the North Pole.

3.  He was afraid, but he called upon all the courage he had as...
     ... gulped down a spoonful of fishhead soup.
     ... he climbed the tree to retrieve the frisbee.
     ... his mother pushed the brussels sprouts under his nose; if Sam couldn't choke down at least three of the slimy green orbs, his tongue might never again experience the frigid splendor of mint-chocolate ice cream.
     ... he knew that Cora, his little sister, wouldn't be able to escape the evil dragon without his help.

Aren't these creative, unique and fun?  For anyone who suddenly feels motivated to join in, please feel free to add to Challenge #1.

Now, on to Challenge #2!  Use these three words in a sentence: bike, eyedropper, moon.  I can't wait to see what you all come up with.  Maybe in the interest of encouraging participation we should offer a prize.  Perhaps followers can vote on which sentences they think are the best, and the winner will receive something fun I have yet to think up....  Please include your thoughts on this in the comments :)  (Whether we should do it and what would be a good prize!)

Once again, I will not post people's responses until tomorrow (or possibly the next day since everyone is busy and doesn't get around to the blog every day.)

Ready, set, GO!


  1. Life has it's defining moments; tonight mine began with a full moon, a tandem bike and a boy tilting backward as he used an eyedropper to drip medication in his eyes.

  2. Wow these challenges are awesome, I wish I had an i-phone then I wouldn't miss so much.

    Here's my attempt at challenge 2

    When I fell off my bike into a crater, I got moon dust in my eyes, but where is my eyedropper?

    So excited I won your books, thank you so much! :)

  3. I commented on this the other day with my entry for the second one, but the comment did not appear. Too bad I've forgotten my line now. When you do this again I'll have another go.

    Thank you so much for the books :)

  4. Catherine - I did get your sentence! I just didn't post it in hopes that others would have a go first. You're most welcome for the books. Thank you for bidding! I apologize that I haven't gotten them in the mail yet - too many school visits to get to the post office. I hope to mail then Tuesday - unless I can talk my husband into mailing them tomorrow :)


I love to hear from you and try to respond to every comment. Please share your thoughts!
