Everyone sent high writer Zack Poitras the first half of a sentence, and it was his job to finish it. Here they are:

I can remember … this time I was trapped in a cardboard box on my driveway for six hours when I was 10. It was the summer. 90 degrees out. I could enter the box one way, close myself inside, and flip around the driveway by heaving myself into the sides of the box to flip myself forward. It was fun and one of my favorite hobbies.
One day I flipped the box’s exit side into a dip in the driveway. I could not flip out. The only way I could exit the box was by breaking the cardboard. But I didn’t want to damage this beautiful TV box. So I waited for my mom to come home. It got so hot I had to take my clothes off layer by layer, until I was naked. All I had was a glow-in-the-dark analog watch, sent as a gift from Time Magazine. I pretended I was in a submarine defusing a bomb.
Six hours later my mom comes home. She gets out of her car. I say “Mom?” She stops, walks toward the box (I can hear her heels), and says, “Zack?” I say, “Yeah. Can you help me get out of the box?” She says, “How long have you been in the box?” I say, “Six hours.”
She yells, “What!” and reaches for the box. I say, “Wait!” She says, “Why?” I say, “I’m naked.”

I’m like an owl in that I am… guilty of killing mice. I once had to put one out of its misery - it’s legs had been caught in a trap. I put it in a plastic bag, then put a napkin over the bag. I went out to my roof. I said, “I’m sorry, mouse,” and slammed a giant dictionary on top of it as hard as I could so it wouldn’t feel anything.
