Fill-In-Friday

June 6, 2008

So this is the deal. We’re all gonna write a story together. Only we each write a small bit at a time. One after the other. I will start the story out with an incomplete sentence and you follow to add to the story…and so on and so on. Darla and I decided to reinstate the 6 word maximum rule – it’ll make it much easier, trust us! Got it? Great!!! OH – don’t forget to REFRESH the page before you submit…just in case someone else has already added to the statement you were working with. Clear? Sure it is! Alright…HAVE FUN!!!!

Here we go…

Sitting in the laundromat, waiting for the spin cycle to end, he contemplated…

    the fate of the missing sock.

  2. June 6, 2008 3:56 am

    The sock was bright pink, and was his….

  3. June 6, 2008 4:47 am

    and mixed in with his print laced briefs. But Brent

  4. June 6, 2008 5:06 am

    forgot that he’d eaten it the day before.

  5. June 6, 2008 5:06 am

    [7 words, i know. whaddya gonna do? take over my blog?!]

  6. June 6, 2008 5:10 am

    Rather than fret over it, he

  7. June 6, 2008 5:14 am

    Eating these socks became quite

    quite an addiction…..almost like blogging

  10. June 6, 2008 5:45 am

    and Twitter. Both of which

    to see if you’re

  13. June 6, 2008 6:20 am

    pregnant. it’s all the rage.

  14. June 6, 2008 6:27 am

    But, alas,

  15. June 6, 2008 6:27 am

    that wasn’t the worst thing

  16. June 6, 2008 6:32 am

    to his surprise he discovered

  17. June 6, 2008 6:34 am

    there was an online test to see

  18. mandyconforth permalink
    June 6, 2008 6:35 am

    one’s reaction if they were told

  19. June 6, 2008 6:37 am

    “Pink sock will stop you up.”

  20. June 6, 2008 6:37 am

    [hahahahaha]

  21. June 6, 2008 6:38 am

    It will give the impression of

  22. June 6, 2008 6:43 am

    A load stuck in spin cycle.

  23. June 6, 2008 7:10 am

    Just then, the cycle stopped and

    June 6, 2008 7:51 am

    which was actually quite small considering

  28. June 6, 2008 7:52 am

    The green men where wearing

  29. June 6, 2008 7:53 am

    odd pink socks

  30. June 6, 2008 8:04 am

    And ten gallon cowboy hats. They asked

  31. June 6, 2008 8:06 am

    Do you twitter? We need to…

    [placenta man… that’s just not right. Nope, not right at ALL.]

  36. June 6, 2008 8:22 am

    The little green men ran

  37. June 6, 2008 8:22 am

    tripping over one another as they

  38. June 6, 2008 8:28 am

    took off their pink socks and

  39. June 6, 2008 8:39 am

    headed for the washers

  40. June 6, 2008 8:39 am

    started dancing in the street

  41. June 6, 2008 8:39 am

    to fix their mopeds

  42. June 6, 2008 8:44 am

    They spoke in British accents

  46. June 6, 2008 9:22 am

    Dancing with the Stars.

  47. June 6, 2008 9:32 am

    Which would have been great, if

  48. June 6, 2008 9:38 am

    They had two feet.

  49. June 6, 2008 9:40 am

    What would they do now?

  50. June 6, 2008 9:47 am

    They would update twitter of course. However

  51. June 6, 2008 9:51 am

    Twitter is always down, so

  52. June 6, 2008 9:59 am

    they set off to find

    inflict pain on mandy

  60. June 6, 2008 10:39 am

    as a punishment for that time

  61. June 6, 2008 10:40 am

    she went to band camp

  68. June 6, 2008 10:51 am

    😆 😆 😆

  69. June 6, 2008 10:52 am

    walked into as she pondered…

  70. June 6, 2008 10:53 am

    how many licks does it take to get the center of Tootsie Roll pop

  71. June 6, 2008 10:55 am

    and how she would get herself

  72. June 6, 2008 11:04 am

    unnoticed at band practice wearing that…

  73. June 6, 2008 11:11 am

    kilt and TAM o’shanter

    grew right out of the kilt! Frantically looking for clothes that would fit she….

  82. June 6, 2008 11:58 am

    grabbed a pair of pink socks

  83. June 6, 2008 12:08 pm

    that have now been beat like a dead horse in her adventure

  84. June 6, 2008 12:16 pm

    suddenly, POOF! the pink socks forever disappeared!

  85. June 6, 2008 12:27 pm

    into the Land of the Lost

  86. June 6, 2008 12:28 pm

    with the stack monsters and dinosaurs

  87. June 6, 2008 12:32 pm

    (the Sleestak – I was terrified of them and afraid they’d be in my closet)

  88. June 6, 2008 12:32 pm

    So if you ever find your self in a laundromat..

  89. June 6, 2008 12:34 pm

    don’t tumble dry low

  90. June 6, 2008 12:35 pm

    with one pink sock…

  91. June 6, 2008 12:42 pm

    because first you will look ridiculous,

  92. June 6, 2008 12:51 pm

    secondly, you will look ridiculous and

  93. June 6, 2008 12:52 pm

    pathetic without a life haning around

  94. June 6, 2008 12:53 pm

    the laundromat/convenience store/pizza parlor/arcade/dunkin donuts.

  96. June 6, 2008 12:54 pm

    little green men can entertain

  97. June 6, 2008 12:56 pm

    ideas about the way

  98. June 6, 2008 12:58 pm

    of the lyrics and the noun and the verb

  99. June 6, 2008 1:04 pm

    and the comma and exclamation point

    {I guess there are no Beastie Boy fans involved with the story}

  102. June 6, 2008 1:12 pm

    why gnomes eat little green men

  103. June 6, 2008 1:26 pm

    wearing pink socks

  104. June 6, 2008 1:27 pm

    it may be for digestive reasons

  105. June 6, 2008 1:30 pm

    since I saw him drinking Pepto

  106. June 6, 2008 1:31 pm

    while eating activate with flaxseed

  107. June 6, 2008 1:32 pm

    because its supposed to be good for you

  109. June 6, 2008 1:41 pm

    mandy’s underwear

  110. June 6, 2008 2:35 pm

    hanging from a flag-pole,

  111. June 6, 2008 2:37 pm

    in the middle of Boston common

  112. June 6, 2008 2:39 pm

    As the crowds gathered

  113. June 6, 2008 2:41 pm

    mandy came a’runnin

  114. June 6, 2008 2:43 pm

    but she tripped on her dangling

  115. June 6, 2008 2:45 pm

    participle

  116. June 6, 2008 2:46 pm

    which is completely understandable

  117. June 6, 2008 2:48 pm

    Seeing’s how it hangs soooo low

  118. June 6, 2008 2:50 pm

    [which mandy are we talking about?????? there are TWO on here, ya know?]

  119. June 6, 2008 2:56 pm

    [look who’s doing the referencing and i’m sure you’ll figure it out…]

  120. June 6, 2008 2:56 pm

    “Stupid participle,” Mandy moaned.

  121. June 6, 2008 2:57 pm

    as she brushed off her

  122. June 6, 2008 2:58 pm

    bruised ego

  123. June 6, 2008 2:58 pm

    AND armpit. she forgot to shave. again.

  124. June 6, 2008 2:58 pm

    and hurried on her way to

  125. June 6, 2008 2:59 pm

    😳

  126. June 6, 2008 2:59 pm

    the groomers

  127. June 6, 2008 3:01 pm

    to pick up FiFi

  128. June 6, 2008 3:01 pm

    [ok all. i only got 3 1/2 hrs of sleep last night and my throat is on fire. i nap twice a year. im using one up now. play nice 😉 ]

  129. June 6, 2008 3:02 pm

    (I heart mandy!!)

  130. June 6, 2008 3:03 pm

    The groomer looked at Mandy

  131. June 6, 2008 3:04 pm

    [why so short sleep, Tam??? enjoy that nap.]

  132. June 6, 2008 3:09 pm

    “mama you fine!’

  133. June 6, 2008 3:10 pm

    was his first thought

  134. June 6, 2008 3:12 pm

    and his second thought was,

  135. June 6, 2008 3:15 pm

    what is dangling!?!

  136. June 6, 2008 3:15 pm

    “man, I rea-he-he-hiiilly need to pee.”

  137. June 6, 2008 3:15 pm

    😆

  138. June 6, 2008 3:18 pm

    Mandy is very 😎 and says,

  139. June 6, 2008 3:27 pm

    “waddaya think of my participle?”

  140. June 6, 2008 3:27 pm

    Man! control your self as if

  141. June 6, 2008 3:29 pm

    ( alece you are killing me.. 😆 )

  142. June 6, 2008 3:38 pm

    [sorry!]

  143. June 6, 2008 3:39 pm

    (alece – in the best of good ways!)

  144. June 6, 2008 3:48 pm

    you are not a laundry mat

  145. June 6, 2008 4:00 pm

    or a doormat

  146. June 6, 2008 4:06 pm

    but the first in a long line

  147. June 6, 2008 4:11 pm

    gnome tippers with dangling participles

  148. Deborah permalink
    June 6, 2008 4:16 pm

    with wings

  149. June 6, 2008 4:20 pm

    and a voice like

  150. June 6, 2008 4:26 pm

    an angel

  151. June 6, 2008 5:04 pm

    singing “you gotta fight for your right”

  152. June 6, 2008 5:07 pm

    to POTTY!!

  153. TheNorEaster permalink
    June 6, 2008 5:27 pm

    But he was out of toilet paper so

  154. June 6, 2008 5:30 pm

    that dangling participle came in awfully handy after all! When he was done, he decided to

  155. June 6, 2008 5:33 pm

    wash hands thoroughly and then make a snack

  156. Sean permalink
    June 6, 2008 5:43 pm

    just a little snack of mackeral

  157. June 6, 2008 5:43 pm

    Meanwhile, the little green pink sock-, ten gallon hat-wearing men were

  158. June 6, 2008 5:45 pm

    Seans!!! neighbors, who wanted to borrow

  159. June 6, 2008 5:48 pm

    a cup of whole wheat flour – no oat bran

  160. June 6, 2008 5:52 pm

    oat bran helps clean arteries so…

  161. June 6, 2008 7:00 pm

    he tossed them in the potty

  162. June 6, 2008 7:48 pm

    because in anger management he learned

  163. June 6, 2008 8:03 pm

    that what you don’t like, you flush!

  164. June 6, 2008 8:41 pm

    and if you really like it you eat it then you flush it

  165. June 6, 2008 9:01 pm

    Just then Mandy burped

  166. June 6, 2008 9:32 pm

    in the key of C#

  167. June 6, 2008 9:59 pm

    with operatic vibrato

  168. June 6, 2008 10:03 pm

    while standing on a balance beam

  169. June 6, 2008 10:04 pm

    (yes, she can multi-task.)

  170. June 6, 2008 10:04 pm

    with a green bean on her nose

  171. June 6, 2008 10:09 pm

    and refried beans IN her nose.

  172. June 6, 2008 10:10 pm

    ya!

  173. June 6, 2008 10:12 pm

    Sneezing beans and boogers

  174. June 6, 2008 10:20 pm

    just like granny taught her

  175. June 7, 2008 5:40 am

    when she spent summers at her granny’s river cabin.

  176. June 7, 2008 5:45 am

    [alece – unbelievable!!!! :shock:]

  177. June 7, 2008 9:20 am

    [what can i say… i couldn’t get you off my mind yesterday…]

  178. June 7, 2008 11:22 am

    [i know! me too!!!]

  179. June 7, 2008 11:26 am

    [aw. group hug]

  180. June 7, 2008 11:26 am

    [Mandy couldn’t get herself off her own mind?]

  181. June 7, 2008 12:02 pm

    [brent, that’s exactly what my thought was too!]
