Fill in the Blank (Day of the Week)

A fellow blogger, Melissa @ Root and Sprout, posted about her child's Mad Libs. It got me to thinking. I LOVE Mad Libs. When I was in fifth through probably ninth grade, I ordered them from Scholastic. Hours of fun. Tons of giggles. Especially during those times when nouns like fart and verbs like ....well, I won't go there... were so popular. 

So, how about it? Wanna play? We'll call it Fill in the Blank though to avoid any copyrighting issues. :0)

Here's what we'll do-I'm going to write down the list that you need to fill in (IE: Noun, city, animal, verb) then I'll see how many comments I get (Where you answer the list) and I'll post them once I have ten comments or so-it's short because I couldn't spend much time with it. Perhaps next week?). :)
Have FUN and Happy Friday!!
