For our third mini-challenge, we're going Mad Libs! Check out the scenario included in the schedule, and write down a corresponding word for each prompt. You decide whether to make it funny, random or perfectly sensible! Here's my version:

One day, I was EATING with DANIEL. Out of the blue, a LION came out of nowhere! It was so BIG, BLUE, and SCARY. At first, we were afraid, we were petrified, but we SANG. We hopped on a SKATEBOARD to make our getaway.

As we escaped, we turned up the radio because KNEE DEEP IN MY HEART came on and made me DANCE. Everything was extremely smooth sailing until an ELEPHANT appeared in the middle of the road. We swerved to avoid it, but while DANIEL stayed on the SKATEBOARD, I got thrown onto my sides in the woods.

I couldn't get up, and felt HAPPY as I lay there staring up at the trees. What was I going to do? I heard a BANG among the leaves, and felt SAD. Surely, this was going to be my end. As my eyes fluttered shut, the last thing I saw was a head of BROWN  hair and BROWN eyes.

When I woke up again, I was on a BED. My body hurt a whole lot less, and I could sit up. THere was a BELL and BOOK in the room, along with PIZZA and MILKSHAKES. The door suddenly opened to reveal HECTOR, a concerned look on his face. I blushed and averted my gaze, but he KNELT and said, "Don't be shy. It's okay."

He came over to sit by me, and we started talking after I told him my name. We chatted about TRAVEL, MUSIC, and MAKING SCRAPBOOKS and realized we had a ton in common! I thought he was SWEET and couldn't help feeling a little swoony.

Just as he reached out for my hand, the door crashed open and in came CHAOL. "Don't let him charm you away, my love!" He yelled, running at HECTOR. They each had SPOONS in their hands and began to fight. "Stop!" I yelled, feeling so ASTONISHED. They didn't listen to me. Before I could intervene, HECTOR fell to the floor and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.

"What was that?" I asked, staring at the empty space. CHAOL dropped his weapon, and came over to me. "Magic, but you are safe now, LEXI." He hugged me close, and I suddenly knew that this was the real deal and not just a dream.

Just as KISS ME started playing in my head, I woke up. I cursed my BEAUTIFUL luck. Why had it only been just a dream?
