We had a fun assignment in English class yesterday. We were given a list of about 200 cliches (clee-shay – I don’t know how to make the accented e) and we were told to create a story using as many as possible. In 1 1/2 handwritten pages (about 3 paragraphs) we used 29. It was hilarious. We were in groups of 4 and our group had a blast. I wrote it while they shot cliches at me to use next. It was your classic boy meets girl, and it was a doozie. I would advise anyone to search a list of cliches online and give yourself a time limit to write a story using as many as possible. The results will amuse you.
