Write a series of questions about any three of the following key words: frogs, painting, old age, blue jeans, and Megan Thee Stallion. At least three of your questions should be linked to exactly one of the following topics: depression, mothers, and war.
Here’s an example of a working question, using the similar topics “drawing” and “fathers.”
Do you wonder sometimes, while your father is drunk and railing at the news, what he might have drawn while bored in an English class in, say, the seventh grade, or do you imagine that he could never have drawn anything, that the entire idea of your father drawing is less natural than a stalk of broccoli with human eyes, or do you imagine that he is, in fact, the sort of person who would have drawn a human-eyed broccoli?

Use specific, precise language to create vivid impressions on readers.
Demonstrate a good understanding of comma usage.
Use commas to build lengthy, purposeful, and stylistic questions.
