November 29, 2011 HOLIDAY MAD LIBS!! Have you ever done Mad Libs before? It’s when there’s a story with a bunch of blanks in it, and you have to fill in the blanks with whatever to create your own story. No matter what, it always ends up being totally ridiculous. That’s what makes it so fun! My mom gave me a whole book of Mad Libs once during a super long road trip to keep me and Brianna occupied. And by super long, I mean 45 minutes…but with Brianna singing “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” AND whining “Are we there yet??” over and over again, every minute in the back seat feels like ETERNITY!! Just one more reason why I TOTALLY need an iPhone—I could Google Map the route and be all like, “Does it LOOK like we’re there yet?!? Anywho, I was kind of bored in study the other day, so I decided to make my own Mad Libs to share with all of you. You’ll probably want to print this out or copy and paste into a Word doc or whatever so you can write in it. Enjoy!!! First you need to make up the following words: Verb with –ing: A noun that’s a place: A holiday song: Adjective: Adjective: Your friend: Verb with –ed: Verb with –ed: Amount of time: Verb: Plural noun: The place you chose up top: A relative: A number: A food item: A relative: Verb with –ed: Noun: A singer: Adjective: A person: A messy food: A body part: Amount of time: A holiday food: Now you put them in this order in the blanks in this story: I was ________ (verbing) at the ________ (noun that’s a place) the other day when I heard ________ (holiday song) come on the radio. I was feeling really ________ (adjective) and I’m pretty sure I looked super ________ because ________ (your friend) walked in and almost ________ (verbed). Seriously, she ________ (verbed) for close to ________ (amount of time)! This time every year I ________ (verb) all the time because I get really exciting thinking about holiday ________ (plural noun)! That’s why I was sitting at the ________ (the place from up top): I was really hoping ________ (a relative) would come by and give me at least ________ (a number) pieces of holiday ________ (food item)! That didn’t happen, but suddenly ________ (a relative) ________ (verbed) by in a huge________ (noun) on wheels dressed up as ________ (a singer). I know ________ (adjective) things happen around the holidays, but this didn’t make any sense! I picked up the phone to call ________ (a person), but the phone turned into a big pile of ________ (a messy food) and dripped all the way down to my ________ (a body part)! Then my alarm clock went off for about ________ (amount of time). It was all a dream! I had a ton of ________ (a holiday food) before I went to sleep. Maybe that’s what gave me the crazy dream! Here’s mine!!! I was squatting at the mall the other day when I heard Jingle Bells come on the radio. I was feeling really dumb and I’m pretty sure I looked super itchy because Chloe walked in and almost screamed. Seriously, she limboed for close to an hour! This time every year I hurl all the time because I get really excited thinking about holiday penguins! That’s why I was sitting at the mall: I was really hoping Dad would come by and give me at least 50 pieces of holiday pizza! That didn’t happen, but suddenly grandma floated by in a huge donut on wheels dressed up as Lady Gaga. I know lame things happen around the holidays, but this didn’t make any sense! I picked up the phone to call Brandon, but the phone turned into a big pile of baked beans and dripped all the way down to my left toe! Then my alarm clock went off for about 33 minutes and 15 seconds. It was all a dream! I had a ton of egg nog before I went to sleep. Maybe that’s what gave me the crazy holiday dream!
