Writing Prompt: Your Dream House

Posted by at 9:53 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink


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!

The carpet in that room is made to look like snow. But yet, is warm! My kitchen is a sunset beach and is always cool. Even in the winter. The kitchen has a shaggy carpet that is the color of sand and the shag materials are recycled too. The ovens are eco friendly and so is the washing machines fridge and so on. The ceiling fans look like clouds. The bathroom is painted to look like a sunny day, my hot tub that can fit 2 people, but the water is CLEAN recycled water. The faucet for the sink and bath look like huge raindrops. The shower is big and again, recycled water. The toilet is eco friendly too. The guest room is of a water fall -Niagara Falls. I have a sound affecter that makes it sound like it is rushing. And the bed is a water bed that is eco friendly. Also, my green house in side the house is filled with all round season plants that I grow and raise in my house. So every month or I change the plants in my house. THEN last but not least, my swimming pool room, he biggest room in the house. It has an ocean horizon walls. The pool when you look at it from a far looks like the ocean because, the picture makes it look like it goes on forever. I have a 50 tall water slide that looks like a water fall. The hot tub looks like a water hole. And also is recycled water. Oh yeah. And the roof has solar panels, all the rooms in the house except my room, my guest room and the kitchen are solar powered lights, the rest of the rooms are CFL light bulbs. The garden out side is filled with organic herbs and plants. AND fruits. THANKS FOR READING! I know its long but I think it’s cool. :)
