Writing Prompt: Your Dream House

OK, you know how fairy tales all have morals, like don't talk to strangers ("Little Red Riding Hood"), or don't make up dramatic stories to get attention ("The Boy Who Cried Wolf")? Well, I don't really get the moral of "The Three Little Pigs." The pig that built his house with bricks didn't get eaten by the wolf, but what are WE supposed to do? It's not like we can choose what our houses are made of . . . but . . . what if we could?! Who would choose bricks?

Today's Writing Prompt comes from goofball of fun girl on the Reading Buzz Board.

"If you could have your house made out of anything, what would it be or what various things would it be? Mine would be jello 'n Dr.Pepper."

Hmm, interesting question. Mine would be mint chocolate chip ice cream with a hard chocolate shell on top that never melts, and solar panels for energy efficiency. And the floor would be made of books that I want to read, so all I have to do when I need a new book is pick one up off the floor. I'd also have a jello trampoline in the back yard and a chocolate pond with cupcakes floating in it. And my cats would have beds made out of tuna fish.

How about you? What's your dream house? Have fun with it, and let me know what you come up in the Comments!

    I’d live in a house with a roof made out of cinnamon sticks, walls made out of ice cream, chocolate chips and pizza and a floor made out of books. I’d have a desk made out of sugar-quills (I’d have some real pencils in my desk drawer) and I’d have a swimming pool filled with guava juice and a hot tub filled with hot chocolate that gets filled every 30 minutes by a chocolate waterfall. I’d have a huge talking minty-teddy-bear in my backyard.

    My house would be made of glitter notebooks from the outside. From the inside(which is the back part of the notebook)it will have paper so I could write anything I want like writing notes. The ceiling would be made of things i could write with, such as markers,pencils, etc. So all I could do is jump up and grab one and write my notes down on the wall. The floor would be made of books because i love reading.( but not to copy you Sonja.)Last but not least the backyard would have a swimming pool made of dr.pepper and a diving board made of hard packed jello. Thats what my house would be made of.

    Mine would be enviromently friendly with 50 bedrooms, a game room, a runway, 10 closets, a pool,and a giant tv. Tons of butlers and maids are hired for a reasonably fair price.

    My house would be made out of water. It would glisten in the sun and inside the walls would be fish and sea-horses. the floor would be made out of sand and it would feel like your at the beach. If this was my real house I would never want to leave!

    My house would be made out of books. My mattress would be super soft, and my freezer would have a bountiful supply of Ben & Jerry’s Mint Chocolate Chunk ice cream and Hazen Dazz (however you spell that) Carmel Cone ice cream. I would have a huge library, and my kitchen would have all sorts of ingredients in it so I could cook all the time.
