HOW TO WRITE IT:
Old (for things, not people)
Bathroom or Backyard
Script 1: Jennifer Aniston is having a similar problem as Robert, except her problem is that the sun is broken down due to being OLD and in disrepair. She prods it impatiently with her Stick, and the sun sputters into motion, and for a brief second begins to work. When it breaks a 2nd time, Jennifer tries another prod with the Stick. This time, because the Stick is also too OLD, it too breaks. Jennifer throws it to the ground in a huff.
Script 2: Janet Jackson has totally lost her mind, trying to control the power of the sun by using her magical Stick. She sticks the Stick into the ground to the left of the sun and starts doing a special magical dance to try to get the power from the sun, but the result of this is that all of the previous brand new objects nearby, the house (apartment), cars, etc. instantly turn OLD. Be sure to imagine the change that these objects are making, taking care to add enough detail to how OLD they have become.
Please feel free to relate 汉字 to each other when you think it will help. This could work if characters share similar pronunciations, places or New Props.
Remember positioning! From your point of view, the Stick should be on the left and the sun on the right.
Show the age of the sun by making it grey or sputtering as it tries to function
Don’t forget to add humor when you can!

IT’S A WORD!
旧 (jiù) carries the meaning “old (of objects),” but it is also a word that can be used independently.
Here are some example sentences of this word in action:
Usage 1 – “old (of objects)“:
zhège chē fēicháng jiù
This car is really old.
非常- fēicháng- really, very (literally “non-” (非) “ordinarily” (常) )
tā tài jiù le, wǒ bù xǐhuan
Its too old, I don’t like it.
jiù de dōngxi yǒuyòng ma
Are old things useful?
东西 – dōngxi- thing, stuff
These sentences are only meant to give you some context; you don’t need to think about them too much for now. Just know that you can’t truly learn a word until you start to see it in the context of a sentence.
