The Masking Tape Story

I was trying to come up with some new post ideas when I came across a story I am very proud of. There are so many movies to review, but I felt the need to share this story. To fully understand the story, I will need to explain the assignment. This was for a Creative Writing class and the Professor instructed us to write a story and end it with the sentence, "It feel off the table again but this time not even masking tape would help". Professor Go, singled out my paper as the paper that did it the best and then I got to read it in front of the class. I felt great that day. So now for the first time outside of the class here is "The Masking Tape Story".

It was almost eleven O'clock at night on Christmas Eve. I had left out milk and cookies for old St. Nick on my broken coffee table. The cookies and milk were held tight by masking tape. Santa would have to put some effort into getting those cookies off the table but I think he will understand. I mean in my letter to him I pretty much tell him about the coffee table situation and how desperately I need a new one. I don't believe in beating around the bush. Very small list this year. The list consisted of a new coffee table and a DVD of Surf Nazis Must Die. I had finished wrapping my family's gifts and was all set for bed. All I needed to do was slip into my Pokemon Pajamas.

The reindeer came crashing into my window and broke my coffee table. I said "Hey old St. Nick, What's the Deal?" He simply laughed and pointed to his sleigh and there it was my brand new coffee table: He remembered. Being good this year paid off. The reindeer licked up the milk and ate the cookies, so there was no mess. Then I turned to Prancer , and saw in his mouth my copy of Surf Nazis Must Die. Santa placed the cookie plate on the old end table. It fell off the table again but this time not even masking tape would help.
