Ripped Into the Headline
Write about something that happened over the weekend as though it’s the top story on your local paper.
An unknown man walked into a local church in Somewhere, PA during a homeschool co-op meeting yesterday. Headquartered at Such a Church, the group meets bimonthly and offers classes in a variety of subjects including art, science, writing, and photography. There were about 35 students present, along with teachers and some parents.
The man simply walked into the building and began handing out take-out menus from a local pizzeria while the students were eating lunch. The teachers were so startled at first that they simply accepted the menus. However, one mother noticed that the man then turned and went down a hallway toward the offices. Uneasy with his behavior, she followed at a safe distance, holding her cell phone ready to call for help if necessary.
It seems that the man was there only to hand out the menus, drumming up business for the pizzeria. The incident ended with no further cause for alarm.
However, new safety measures have been established to prevent anyone from having easy access during these co-op meetings.
