Story Script - Fly in my Soup


(Gist: A couple goes out to eat. They each order something. Each finds something gross in their food.)

Super Simple

Lance and Harlee are at a restuarant. Lance wants potato soup and Harlee wants eggs, bacon and toast.

Lance eats a little bit. He eats more. There is a tooth in the soup!

Harlee eats a little bit of eggs. She eats more. There is a cockroach in her eggs!

I'm still spinning Summer Postcards in my Spanish 2 class. One of my students drew a picture of herself waitressing at the local restaurante. This story has been in my head for about a month now. Today was it's day. I had consulted with the girl quickly a day or so before to make sure she'd feel good being in a story. I don't always do this, but thought it important with this student. So she the waitress was a key figure in the story. This of course added a unique perspective and all kinds of other personalized elements and conflicts to the story.
