Last minute Wordzzle

My Aunt Kathie has this great writing game that she's been posting on her blog on a weekly basis called Wordzzles. She gives out 10 random words and you have to write them into a paragraph. It's "due" every Saturday, so I'm getting mine in just under the wire this week! Here are this week's words:

horse shoe, antique chest, marigold, lunatic, science fiction, Oregon, previously, 10 billion, google, tree hugger

And here is my paragraph which is NOT a true story, of course....

10 Billion people in the world and I can't seem to avoid that lunatic tree-hugger from Oregon for a single day. Don't get me wrong, I want to save the environment too, but all I can do is my best. Working at Google has it's benefits. Last week, my whole team got to take a 3 hour lunch break to play horseshoes. And you get to work with the smartest people the planet has to offer. Interesting and fascinating people. The type of people who know the difference between great science fiction and Star Trek Deep Space 9. People who can look through an antique chest full of newspapers and have enough knowledge AND UNDERSTANDING of history to know the significance of what is printed on them. But the problem with geniuses is that they tend to be a little crazy. Like my friend from Oregon. I thought I'd enjoy a little sunshine on the lawn today and was lectured for 10 minutes about the marigold I stepped on. I won't even go into the lectures I've received previously.

Ah, beloved genius niece. A masterful job. (And that's not just because I love you either. It's genuinely excellent.) Thanks for playing.

I Love You,
Aunt Kathie (aka Raven)

Hope all is well for you!
