Mad (Lib) Giveaway Time

I'm having a giveaway and would love for you to spread the word about it. One recipient will receive a gift certificate good for one amigurumi plushie. You can decide which owl, bunny or cat you'd like. These are great for your keys or backpack. Keep it for yourself or use as a gift!

All you need to do is offer some words. You don't have to travel to another site. You don't have to choose your favorite.

This is a homage to all those wonderful Mad-Libs that we played with when we were young(er). And, for those who like to cheat, you can find the story we're filling in if you look hard enough (on the 2nd page of this blog) but that would be cheating wouldn't it?

Here's what I need:
Active Verb
Time of Day or Year
Plural Noun
Sorry, I was never good at diagraming sentences. But, let the fun begin!

Enter as often as you wish. All entries will be used to create stories for the Guild of Good Luck Owls. One entry will be chosen randomly as the winner of one amigurumi plushie. If you would like to have your business name mentioned in the description as the creator of the story, please link me to your store.

This is not affiliated in any way with Mad-Libs. It's a fun way to get your kids excited about words. If you don't have a book, please stop by your local bookstore and purchase one.  Thank you!
