    Default Week 3 - If I only had... *Challenge*

    Before we continue on our journey.... check the below thread to see is you will be moving on to week 3.
    I Survived Week 2 *POSTED*

    With the magical ruby slippers comfortably in place, you and Dorothy begin your journey. Following the yellow brick road, you quickly make your way through the Land of Munchkins. Suddenly you come to a fork in the road, with no idea of which way to go, you begin to worry!
    A strange voice comes from the nearby field, it is a kind voice, he is offering us help, telling us which direction to take. Dorothy realizes the voice is coming from a Scarecrow!! After a quick introduction, he tells you how hard his life is because he has no brain. Oh his life would be so much better, "If he only had a brain."

    "I could while away the hours, conferrin' with the flowers
    Consultin' with the rain.
    And my head I'd be scratchin' while my thoughts were busy hatchin'
    If I only had a brain," the Scarecrow tells us.

    "Well, we are on our way to see the wonderful Wizard of Oz, maybe he can give you a brain! Why don't you come with us!" Dorothy offers.
    And we're off to see The Wizard!!
    Some time passes, and you stumble upon a man made out of tin! After a quick dose of oil, he is all loosened up, and begins to tell you his story.

    "When a man's an empty kettle he should be on his mettle,
    And yet I'm torn apart.
    Just because I'm presumin' that I could be kind-a-human,
    If I only had heart.
    I'd be tender - I'd be gentle and awful sentimental
    Regarding Love and Art.
    I'd be friends with the sparrows ... and the boys who shoots the arrows
    If I only had a heart."

    We decide he simply must go to the Wizard of Oz with us, maybe he can give the Tin Woodman a heart!

    Soon nightfall is upon us, and we begin to feel uneasy, suddenly a great roar comes from the woods!! We all scatter in fright!! A Lion jumps out and challenges each one of us to a fight! He even chases poor Toto! Well Dorothy just will not have any of that! She swats the big Lion right on the paw, and gives him a scolding. The Lion breaks down in tears, and tells us that he has no courage, he is a cowardly Lion.

    "Yeh, it's sad, believe me, Missy, When you're born to be a sissy
    Without the vim and verve.
    But I could show my prowess, be a lion not a mou-ess
    If I only had the nerve," the Lion explains.

    Well of course, he must come with us on our journey, we all insist it!

    We continue our journey- the Scarecrow after a brain, a heart for the Tin Woodman, some courage for the Lion, and a way home for Dorthy and you.
