  1. Think of a "lesson" you learned when you were younger though a an experience that was funny/or dramatic. Then make it into a "fiction" story. For instance I used to play mumbldy peg with a friend. That is a game played with a knife. My grandmother absolutely told me to STOP! I, of course, ignored that.... It wasn't long before when we were playing, my friend put his hand down on the ground to keep me from carving off more territory... I threw the knife through his hand. I spent a LOT of time sitting in my grandmother's " time-out chair".
