Cause and Effect

Write a cause and effect paragraph (or two or three...long enough to develop your idea). Start with an improbable statement of cause and effect, and use your paragraph to connect the dots. This should be humorous.

Did you know that beautiful springtime flowers can relate to an embarrassing water spewing episode? It happens because of cause and effect. Let me explain...

Flowers in the spring that just bloomed can spread a lot of pollen. Some people have allergies to pollen, making their eyes itchy and their noses stuffy. It happens with kids too. Let's say one girl has allergies and she wants to take pills instead of syrup because she is ten years old. She buys some pills at the drug store and takes them home. That night, before bedtime, she tries to swallow her first pill with some water. She gets too much water in her mouth, then drops the pill into her mouth. She tries to swallow but she spews water on the kitchen floor instead.

And that is how a flower can cause a mess on your floor.
