My daughter got off the school bus and hopped into my car. "Mom, guess what?"
"What?" I asked.
"We had a pitch contest in school, today."
"A pitch contest?" I imagined the class writing query letters to agents, trying to convince them to represent their manuscripts. That wasn't it.
"Yeah. We're learning about sound waves in school, so we had a contest to see who could produce the biggest sound waves. We had to scream as loud as we could. Like this." My daughter let out an ear-piercing scream.
"Oh my gosh!" I said, quickly covering my ears. "Did you have to do that in the car?"
My son thought that was hilarious. So guess what he did? He screamed.
Then they both screamed at the same time.
"ENOUGH!!!" I bellowed.
It got quiet.
"Wow, Mom," my daughter said. "I think you just won the pitch contest!"
Hee hee. I love it!ReplyDelete
I guess I was a bit loud! :)Delete

Good one, Sherry. Isn't it amazing how we writers have a one-track mind when it comes to words like pitch, query, and agent? :)ReplyDelete
Yeah - you can tell where my mind is!Delete
You must have a good set of lungs there, Sherry.ReplyDelete
I surprised myself!Delete

Hahaha! I bet it's a page out of a lot of mommy diaries!Delete
He! He! This made me laugh :) I think I should read your posts more often now since I'm going to work with lots of children in the future :) :)ReplyDelete
Definitely! This will give you a good heads up on what life with kids is like!Delete
Hah! Too funny! I can't help but think you all would risk going deaf if you did even more pitch contests... XDReplyDelete
