…or your room!
My young writers’ group gets a kick out of this prompt*:
They must start the first sentence of their story with the word Fortunately……. and the second sentence with Unfortunately….
Here are a few examples:
Fortunately, a large box was waiting for me on my porch when I got home from school.
Unfortunately, it contained a dozen wild spider monkeys who would now be living with me!
Fortunately, I made it to class on time.
Unfortunately, I was still wearing my pajama pants!
Fortunately, I won a $100,000 !
Unfortunatley, I am only allowed to spend it on diapers and beef jerky!
What silly or crazy stories can you come up with using Fortunately, Unfortunately? I may give a prize for the goofiest comment!
