Below, please find two of my entries.


“Hey. Hey, you!”
“Shhh, I’m trying to take a nap here.”
“You came here to take a nap?”
“I brought a class of unruly teenagers to roam around the zoo to get some peace and quiet.”
“Well, isn’t it convenient?”
“Yes, it’s a genius plan. You have to admit. Now, please, go. Go away.”
“I need your eyes.”
“You WHAT?”
“I need your EYES.”
“I heard you the first time, but what di… oh, umm…”
“I have no eyes of my own, so I thought I could have yours, since apparently you don’t use those…”
“KIIIIIIIIIIIDS? We’ve gotta go!”


“Brother Pang?”
“I’m too old for this.”
“Is that you, Pang?”
“What was I thinking having all these drinks last night?”
“Huh? Who? What? Where?”
“My poor brother. What have they done to you?”
“Teddy? Where are you? Is that you?”
“Stop freaking out.”
“Is my hangover THAT bad? Am I now seeing and hearing things?”
“Listen, brother, I know someone who owes me a favor. We can get you back to your normal form.”
“Normal form? That’d be great. My head is pounding.”
“The spell has you confused. I’ll get you help. Don’t worry.”
“Quiet, please.”


Which version do you like more? The first, or the second?
