25 WORDS OR LESS

A teacher in an adult education creative writing class told her students to write "I love you" in 25 words or less, without using the words, "I love you." They had 15 minutes to complete this assignment.

A woman in the class spent about 10 minutes looking at the ceiling and wriggling in her seat. Then she began to write frantically. Later she read the results to the rest of the class. Three statements was all she needed. Here they are:

- "Why, I’ve seen lots worse hairdos than that honey."

- "These cookies are hardly burned at all."

- "Cuddle up, I’ll get your feet warm."

Need I say any more? She got the highest grade.

(From a sermon by Bruce Howell, "God’s Valentine" 2/9/2009)
