This was supposed to be for last week's Illustration Friday prompt.....uh...yeah.....
When Emma and I walk to school in the morning, we each get into our imaginary pods, strap on layer upon layer of imaginary protective gear, and then engage in fierce candy war. We try to think of the stickiest, goopiest, most creative way to pummel each other with sugar.
"Candy apple mace!"
"Argh! Marshmallow absorption shield. Spun-sugar web!"
"Yes, Fredward. He's my giant jellybean who eats your sugar web."
"Ugh. Sour Patch Kids, attack Fredward!"
"Fredward womps them flat. Poprock cannon with lemonade sprayer!"
"Arrgghghghgh, ow ow ow! "
By the time we get to school, we are both a gloppy, battered mess. Luckily, we have the gummy bear brigade to lick us clean so the teacher will never suspect a thing.
Have a spectacular weekend!
