Snapshot Into The Life Of A Snap Dragon

“Don’t snap !”, the snapdragon snapped at the snake, as he took another snapshot, of him eating even more ginger snaps. At lunch, every time that the snap dragon was about to take a munch, he heard a “SNAP !”, instead of a crunch. As the snap dragon spoke, “SNAP !”, something else broke – it was the leg falling off the bed, as he rolled over, when he awoke ! He really felt like a superstar, as “Lights ! Camera ! Action !”, another picture was taken of snapdragon, in his car. From the minute that Snapdragon got up in the morning, “SNAP !”, something else something else broke as soon as he started yawning ! This time it was his false teeth inside the glass at the side of the bed … when Snapdragon looked at the damage, he saw red ! Snapdragon’s floorbards broke, on the way to the bathroom … then “SNAP !”, there goes another …- the handle falling off the broom ! It seemed like Snapdragon’s whole life was falling apart at the seams – he even heard a “SNAP !” and awoke with a start, when Snapdragon stumbled out of his sleepy dreams !
