100 Words - Green Army Men

toy soldiers

Billy tried to extol the virtues of his intellect to his collection of green army men. They were obedient but not enthused about his strategy for assaulting the new litter of puppies that were getting all his parents’ attention.

Billy explained to his men that they may be small, but they outnumbered the puppies ten to one. He silenced the few skeptics with threats of diaper duty. The plan was to wait till mama dog, Bootsy was her name, was out for her walk.

As the front door shut Billy threw the men into the cardboard box. The puppies won.
