Time for some creativity!

Okay my lovely bloggy friends, it is time for you to explore your creative side.  I know you can do it!

I regret to say that Andrew's recent observation that William looked as though he had a black eye was correct. :(  Yes indeed, something did happen to cause that sore puffy eye............ something happened.  Am I going to tell you what that something was?  Well, yes.  But not yet.  (And those who know - 'sshhhhhhh!!!').

First, I want YOU to come up with an interesting / far-fetched / hilarious / serious or not-so-serious description of what may have happened.  I will then choose my favourite, post it onto my blog, mention your name (of course) and share with my readers my most favourite thing about YOU.  :0)  To make you feel good, for making the effort and all.  :)

SO - get creative!!!!

How did my sweet little William get his black eye?????  

Contest closes midnight Thursday 4th June.  :)

Will wanted a turn at his Daddy's boomerang (ha ha ha ha ha).....Sorry, too good an opportunity to pass up. Love you heaps.

Not creative, but common place would be he climbed out of his cot/high chair and face planted on some object.
Nathan was lying on the lounge with a radar gun toy and was kicking me in the face last night, so I flicked his feet away and the toy bumped his head giving him a nasty egg. Which I didn't realise because he went and hid sobbing terribly and I thought it was because he was cross at me for flicking his legs. But I don't think your sweet William could get up to such mischief and you are much more gentle and understanding than I was! Looking forward to hearing the real answer.

OK, I'm not very creative, but I'll try. He walked into something while watching Elijah do one of his singing shows!!

I like the boomerang comment - LOL

I'd say he bonked it in the corner of the coffee table????

One day there was a little rascally rabbit named Will-i-can, who loved to play with his water-i-can,
he watered (of coursa!),
he bounded,
he bopped - his way right into the water-i-can!
that was the end of poor Will-i-can's play time!

Grand dad, Papa Stuart, Elijah and William decided to go on a long sea voyage. This was meant to be a home schooling excursion to visit the ancient historical sites of Troy, the plains of Marathon, Thermopylae, Rhodes, Crete and others. The voyage was also a male bonding trip so Saraya stayed behind to look after Saminda.

The Four Fern boys loved sailing Grand dad's boat "JAG" up the coast; past the Great Barrier Reef where they watched the whales and dolphins frolicing in the water; through the Torres Strait admiring the large sea turtles as they surfaced to breathe; then westward they sailed into the vast, lonely expanse of the Indian Ocean. As the happy crew sailed into the Gulf of Aden, they knew their outward journey was nearing its end. They only had to sail up the Red Sea, past the place where Moses led the Israelites safely across to the promised land and they would be in the Mediterranean Sea where there were wonderful things to see and do.

The serenity of sailing speedily across a glistening sea was shattered by the roar of a powerful engine as an unknown boat pulled alongside. Somali pirates were swooping onboard. Grand Dad drew his naval officers sword and handed his midshipman's dirk to Elijah. Elijah and Grand Dad thrust and parried and gradually pushed the pirates back to their own boat. The leader of the pirates did not want to see his henchmen defeated, so, armed with a long curved knife, a pistol in his belt and a machine gun in his hand he leapt onto the deck of "JAG" and declared "I AM THE PIRATE KING!"

Stuart had been oblivious to the sound of battle as he was playing internet war games with his distant friends, but the pirate king's declaration made him think he was back at Savoyards Theatre so he emerged gracefully from the cabin singing "HURRAH FOR THE PIRATE KING, HURRAH FOR THE PIRATE KING, IT IS IT IS A GLORIOUS THING TO BE A PIRATE KING." An icy, withering glare from the pirate king was sufficient to send Stuart slithering back through the hatch where he scurried off to a far corner quivering in fear. Afterall, it is well known that Stuart is a cowardly lion.

William, seeing Grand Dad and Elijah were no match for the heavily armed pirate king, threw himself bravely into the fray. History records many brave charges such as Marshall Ney's cavalry charge against the Duke of Wellington's troops at Waterloo, Colonel George Armstrong Custer's charge at the Little Big Horn and charge of the Light Brigade against the Russian guns during the Crimean War. None of these compare with the selfless bravery of William against the pirate king.

At full pace William charged and reaching up at high as he could, headbutted the pirate king's knee. William may have suffered a black eye but the pirate king suffered a humiliating defeat. In attempting to avoid further onslaught from William, he leapt backwards and fell into the water. Weighed down by all his weapons, he would have drowned but for his pirate crew grabbing him by the collar and pulling him onto their boat. They fled into the distance not wanting to incur any further wrath of the Fern boys.

Stuart the cowardly lion slinked from the cabin full of praise for William's bravery. "Only if I had such courage, I could be King of the Jungle", said Stuart. William's wounded eye was like a noble badge of courage, earned for great bravery in protecting others. All the other Fern boys then sang "HURRAH FOR WILLIAM, IT IS IT IS A GLORIOUS THING TO BEAT THE PIRATE KING".

Then off they sailed to enjoy their home school excursion hoping not to meet any more pirates on the way home.
