Something Called "Galumphing"

One of my homework assignments from last week (yes I am a little behind) was to put to use a practice called "Galumphing". Basically making something from nothing in a wild creative way. So her way to get us to do this was to pick a 3 digit number. I chose 550. Then we looked at a chart to come up with our subject matter. I got a garbage can, a car salesman and a museum. Here is what I came up with...

A garbage can, a car salesman and a museum

Many say the Smithsonian Institute is the largest and most impressive museum in the world. It may be large and impressive, but today it is the most depressing place in the world. “Jake, you are nothing but a used car salesman! You have no means to support me or provide for the family I want to start…so no, I will not marry you.” The words were still stinging my ears. I suppose I should have picked a more romantic place to propose but I thought this might work since this is the place we first met. So here I am, on a beautiful Saturday in the Smithsonian, digging through a garbage can to find the ring she just threw in the trash along with my heart.

That's really creative. I would still be staring at a blank page.
