I found a cool exercise

I was surfing around lj communities and found this writing group that posted the following challenge: use the following four words in 100 words: flamingo, torpedo, lasagna, cranium. It wasn't easy, but I managed to come up with something. I hope the rest of you give it a try! For me, the hardest part was hitting exactly 100 words. Here's what I came up with and it's untitled:

Screeeet. My nails lacerate his bronze-polished flamingo. He wouldn’t get a pink one; instead, he bought a metal one so tough it could torpedo a riot-proof building. My nails are bleeding.

Sploosh. Wet pasta lambastes the floor. I repainted the kitchen “spaghetti sauce red.” One more meal of his lasagna and I’ll need my stomach pumped for toxins.

Scruunch. The sound his cranium would make if I pestle it to dust as I’d like to. He earned worse treatment after running over my sister’s cat, but my arrest warrant for the last guy caught up with the local police station.

*Please feel free to make comments! I'd love some feedback, as I'm stretching my creative writing wings again.

It was fun to think about! Sound effects in conjuction with each word came to mind first and that's how I arrived at my 100 words. The four words selected seem like a random choice!
