Book Arts Improv: Call #3

Book Arts Improv logo

Welcome to week 3 of the Book Arts Improv!

Ugh. Last week.

I guess it was going to happen sooner or later.

In the spirit of a clean slate, here are the new suggestions:

  1. A sign that you’re a grownup.
  2. Something that should never be a float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.
  3. A scary place.

To participate in the Improv, just comment on this post with a response for each of the three categories listed above. I’d like to keep this suitable for all audiences, so please, nothing offensive.

I will accept suggestions until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, January 17, 2012. On that day, one entry will be selected at random and not only will that person’s suggestions be used for that week’s book, but the winner will also receive a copy of the book.

Good luck!

Jill –

Well I guess I’m not a grownup then because I always laugh at “fart”.

It’s funny, today I was thinking ‘what if farts were a color?’ Clearly not a very grownup thought.

Marcia –

It would be awesome if farts were a color. Then no one would be able to lie about letting one rip. Society needs to accept that farts happen and they’re here to stay.
