This weeks phrase: “Fooling, fooling, too much fooling.” (Astrid Lindgren, Pippi Longstocking)

Brandon waited years to make his debut, watching his father and grandfather play to the audience. Now it was his turn.

He took the stage and performed, expecting applause for his act.

Instead they jeered him and chanted, “Fooling, fooling, too much fooling.”

Not the words he’d longed to hear.

Give it a try. You might be surprised at what you can compose.
