The List

Clayton had an assignment this week which was to write a paragraph incorporating all of the week's vocabulary words.

Here are the words he needed to use:

received
feisty
advertisement
mild-mannered
pesky
troublesome
energetic
harshly
murmured
crowding

Think about it for a minute. What would you write?

Here is what Clayton came up with. It is PERFECT! And the best thing is, he doesn't understand why I find it so hilarious:

Yesterday I received an advertisement in the mail. It said, "Please adopt a troublesome, feisty and energetic little dude from Tasmania." I murmured, "Who would adopt a troublesome guy from Tasmania? I want a mild-mannered guy who is never crowding you or being pesky or doing anything harshly."
