Here's my entry:
By Beth Carter
Lil' Acorn hates family reunions. He feels like a misfit. Relating to his half-cousins, Rocky, Rolling Stone, and Pebble, is next to impossible. All they want to do is sit around like, well, rocks. Meanwhile, Lil' Acorn is itching to do something. Anything.
"Watch this, Pebble!"
Lil' Acorn proudly displayed his shoot. "Look. I can make it change colors from yellow to red. Cool, right?"
Rocky and Pebble sat there stony faced as usual. Boring cousins. Lil' Acorn wished he could kick one of them.
He looked toward Rolling Stone. Again, no response. Lil' Acorn stared at the dirt wishing he knew the time. "Man, this is one boring family reunion."
Okay, that's my weird entry. Give it a try. Let's write!
