WRITING CONTEST #27: Use the word “moonstruck” in a sentence

DEADLINE:    February 11th (coming up on Valentine’s Day!)

SENTENCE WRITING CONTEST: Every Monday a new, interesting vocabulary word will be posted here, as well as a sentence using that word.

Your job is to create and post a new, better sentence in the comment box, using the same word. Yes, you may change the form of the word. Yes, I’ll be the judge. Yes, I am a subjective judge  ( I like clever or funny, I hate bigotry).

The winning sentence will be announced here the following Monday.


Need a simple definition reminder? Moonstruck: Unable to think or act normally, esp. because of being in love.

SENTENCE TO BEAT:    “What’s wrong with ya’, girl?” the old woman yelled above the noise of the giant compactor, raising her eyebrows and waggling her bony hips with a snaggle-toothed grin, implying I was moonstruck, coocoo for the beautiful cocoa puff watching over our sector of the factory; little did she know, I’d eaten the bowl, had my fill as it were, only to find him lacking, oh so lacking, in flavor and any meaningful substance.
