Similarities to certain formerly popular show are… not quite coincidental.:-)
TALON PIKIT- It was just a normal day for townspeople. Suddenly, a sharp deafening cry was heard in a distance. The surrounding became eerie. The breeze of air turned deathly cold. The bright morning had swiftly changed into dark and bloody sunrise. Everything stopped for a moment. The rowdy crowd of Talon Pikit has just witnessed the most horrific and eeriest moment of their lives. A known body was found in a pile of trash. The newly elected mayor of Talon Pikit was brutally and mercilessly murdered! According to the authorities, multiple stabs were the cause of death. Until now, the killer has not yet been found and known to the public. Could it be a political-related matter or it’s just a personal issue? Is the killer one of the people of Talon Pikit, a political rival, or just merely an animal?

MY TRIPLE THREAT DILEMMA
So my school choir, orchestra, and the theater group decided to join forces for a performance. I’m in all three! Help!
During my elementary school years, I was active in the performing arts. When I auditioned for the school play, I was informed that they would use pre-recorded background music. However, someone thought it would be better to have the orchestra play live music during the performance, and the choir instead of the performers of the play sing that some of the songs.
Now what was I supposed to do? I was a soprano in the choir; I was the violist (I played the viola, the violin’s cousin) in the orchestra; and I was an elephant in the school’s play “Jungle Book.” Drama dilemma!
