“WAG #8: Rose Colored Glasses” Go out and choose an unfamiliar object (in other words, one you have no history with) that strikes you as ugly, repulsive, annoying, etc… some ideas might be: a wad of squashed gum on the pavement, a dead squirrel on the side of the road, an ugly sign, a loud construction site, a tacky sculpture in a charity shop… and write about it in such as way as to make it appealing to your reader. Really sell it! Use whatever words you want and cheat as much as you want, but do your best!
Wow, hard one- I am more repulsed by bad behavior then by the way anything is created. Of course, some things like squished gum are results of bad behavior...
Hmmm. Here goes-
Ladies and gentlemen, let me present to you the most beautiful lamp of all time. It is shapely. It is seductive. It will fit into any decor. From the gorgeous cream colored vinyl to the black fishnet surrounding it, your friends will be amazed. They will not be able to quit looking at it. The women will want to have a pair of dark pumps just like the one at the base while the men will be drawn to the seductive leggy shape. The light is bright but softened by the sounded shade with matching black tassel. Everyone will be talking about this lamp. Everyone will want one. Friends will rush out to have one in their home as well. Even better if you can find a matching pair. This shapely lamp will forever be associated with the best time of year- Christmas. Even your grandchildren will fight over who gets this stunning heirloom when you die. You'll be the talk of the town.
Okay- if I did this right, you'll know what lamp I'm describing. Hint: it's from an old movie.
