THIS IS A YEAR OF THE DRAGON CONTEST ENTRY
This is a 100-word contest entry for October. How long is your list?
It’s not lickens, but “good” lickens.
What local kid never got good lickens with one rubbah slippah? Sometimes just hearing the threat of getting good lickens was enough, sometimes it wasn’t. That’s when parents would get creative.
You know you’ve met someone who got good lickens when they can add to the list.
Then you try to one up each other.
“Oh yeah? I got good lickens wit da family Bible---howz dat?!”
Now, it’s about time-outs and losing computer privileges.
“Junk, Moms, took away my data plan!”
Not da same.
