11th Annual Halloweensie Contest!!!


After being on a revision marathon all summer, Susanna Leonard Hill's 11th annual Halloweensie contest was just what I needed to spark some creativity and write something new. I hope you enjoy my entry, loosely inspired by my 4-year-olds bathroom antics.



THE HALLOWEEN POTTY

By Andrew Hacket

100 Words



Halloween night.

Goosebumps bristle

as monsters arrive, goodies in hand.

Time to party.


“Too little,” they say. I’m ushered away.


I stand in my lavatory, laboratory.

My cauldron, shiny white.

A trick up my sleeve.


Time to mix.

Time to make.

Conjure.

Create.


But footsteps on stairs means hurry,

move quick. Too rushed to measure, I toss it all in.


With a flush of excitement, I give it a whirl.

The cauldron strains,

gurgles, groans,

about to explode.


My family bursts in

as the toilet erupts.


They’re now dripping in slime

that glows-in-the-dark.
