A while back, I was doing all these short story challenges, which I found kind of fun. Stuff like, write a story with no prepositions. Or, write a story where no sentence has more than three words. This was one of the more challenging ones:
Write a very short story of one paragraph (50+ words) without using the letter E
Agonizingly difficult. Here's my attempt:
"Congratulations, happy birthday!" Mark said to his old dog Sparky, who was now 13. "Your manhood starts today."
Sparky's bar(k) mitzvah was that day and Mark said d'var Torah for Sparky. That night, Sparky drank his first alcoholic drink. Mark also bought him his first razor.
It was a good day.
