Assignment 8

Write a short story that is from the perspective of someone experiencing something completely unknown to them.  The idea is make the central character show the reader an event/situation/experience that incorporates the senses to the fullest.  This is also a "show, don't tell" exercise for the writer.  Example:  John got punched in the stomach and started to feel sick. - vs - John felt the bully's meaty hand slam into his gut.  Falling to his knees, John could see little lights dance before his eyes and acrid bile sting at the back of his throat.
