Creative and entertaining story! I could picture it all as I read it! Annoying the family with a ceaseless fascination for something new seems right on target for an eleven year old! Clever use of the topic word, especially of Derek’s dividing it into new meaning! Enjoyed the read!
Good read! Words are fascinating and interesting. I share Amelia's fascination with learning a new word. Have you ever noticed when you learn a new word you start to hear it all the time?
Great job and spot on topic.

God bless~
This story brought back funny childhood memories. As a child, I loved finding new and big words in books, and then using them freely, sometimes with right meaning, sometimes quite off kilter. I remember my mom asking, "Just where did you learn that word, dear?" Thank you for bringing back fun and wonderful memories!
Congratulations on ranking 27 overall!
