The Best Homework Excuse Ever

Post by m_a_kelly » Mon Oct 26, 2009 12:04 pm

I was sitting under the tree in our backyard with a notepad and pen, writing my book report which was due in the morning.

The sky was beginning to darken. 


Suddenly, a very bright light stabbed through the branches overhead, shimmering oddly. 


A spaceship landed in front of me.

I jumped up, startled. A scream caught in my throat.

Then, the aliens emerged: five little green men. 
One ran up and snatched the notebook from my hands. Scurrying back to his brethren,  he began tearing paper out, handing the torn pages to each of them.

I guess they were hungry.

Here's the grammer check. No comma after "writing my book report"

I like it, but somehow I'm at a loss as to how to respond to it.

Glad you liked it. Thanks for the comma catch! I'm not great with the punctuation errors at times. I just edited it. 8)

Glad you like it, anyway. It is a bit different. :)
