Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.
At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.
I’m using: Movie ~ Train ~ Three ~ Dog ~ Macaroni

I decided to go on vacation. I'd been working hard and I felt that, damn it, it was time.
I've never traveled by train before, so I thought it would be fun to give it a shot now. Why not, right
Oh, I learned my lesson.....it wasn't fun.
IT WAS A BLAST!!!!
They showed a movie that I hadn't seen in forever, so I kicked back and watched it. I fell asleep halfway through it and, when I woke up, I discovered that I had a new friend. It was a beautiful black Lab that was sitting in the seat next to me. I reached over to pet it and realized it was eating a big bowl of macaroni. I found this odd, because, well...dogs shouldn't eat macaroni. But this dog was pigging out, like it hadn't eaten in days.
Afterward, the dog curled up and fell asleep. There was a man sitting behind us talking and was funny, because it almost sounded like the dog was doing the talking. But talks can't talk.
I closed my eyes for a couple of minutes and the next thing I know, I'm being tossed from the train with the dog! They said that we didn't give them our tickets, but I know they got mine. And this dog belonged to someone...just not me. So Doggie and I started walking toward the next station....THREE TOWNS OVER!! By the time we got there, I was exhausted. I sat down on the bench and closed my eyes.
They snapped open when I heard the train whistle. Confused, I looked around.
I was on the train!
I looked to the seat next to me and saw the lab.
I swear, he winked at me.
