No Doughnuts But I Did Eat Goulash
The following story uses words that contain the vowel teams ou, ou, our,and ough.
The
boulevard
 was quiet. Not a
soul
 wasto be seen. As an
afterthought
 , I
bought
 the
journal’s
 morning edition. There was no
glamour
 on the front page, just the usual
overwrought journalism
.
Youthful
 crimeis up; the
caribou
 herd in the far north isnot
flourishing
 because of
drought
; theairline is seeking new
routes
 and a new
concourse
. All the news was
routine
. Iwent down the
thoroughfare
 to the
souvenir
 shop to use my
coupon
 to buy a
cantaloupe
 ,
soup
 , and
doughnuts
 for
nourishment
. The
journey
 was
rough
. Theowner was late again; his door was locked. That man is the
scourge
 of the
borough
; heis out of his
gourd
. He is never
courteous
 , and when he
pours
 coffee, he sometimesspills it on my
pompadour
. I will not
mourn
 if this
ghoul
 were to get eaten by a
cougar
. I decided to
adjourn
 to the
shoulder
 of the road near the
boulder
. Outwalked a
troubadour
 
group
 with
acoustic
guitars singing
Down at the
Bayou
.
Encouraged
 , I decided to eat
goulash
somewhere else and skip the extra calories.
