For those who like to tell stories. The idea is to take a given sentence and use it as the opening to a story that you write - but your story must be fifty words or less (not including the original sentence).

The man with the foxtail boa was following me again.

I had been trying to lose him for hours. He's a drag queen and he wants my velvet purple mini skirt. My legs look great in that skirt!! I'll never give it up, no matter how long i have to hide.

It was past midnight and she still wasn't home.

The man in the foxtail boa sat on the chair, waiting for the door to open. He had already looked in the closet for the skirt, but he couldn't find it. He sat and waited for her to come home; his loaded gun by his side.

********************

The door slowly opened.

Weather Forecast

The door slowly opened.
It was windy.
The door closed.
Again, the door slowly opened. Then shut as if playing a game with the wind.
Open. Shut. Open. Shut.
The wind died down. The door shut for good.

Oh, it's continous. Ignore my ranting.

It's not continuous, actually, except at the current author's choice. If you don't want to continue, you don't have to (it wasn't meant to be, anyway!).

Bruce hated Desperate Housewives.

For one thing, they were so... desperate. And in their desperation, willing to do anything. Anything.

The word 'anything' rattled around in Bruce's brain for a while, then a huge smile began to form.

Bruce LOVED desperate housewives! But he still hated the television show.

I couldn't remember when I had seen her last.

I couldn't remember when i had seen her last.

But i remember the smell of her perfume. Sometimes when i'm down by the docks looking for a hooker, i can smell her perfume. Is she back in town? I wonder...

There was a shadow behind the door.

There was a shadow behind the door.

A dark emptiness. From my seat on my couch I could see the mans chest, up and down, up and down. I reached for my revolver that was tucked away under my shoulder. I took it out, and made my way over to the door.

It looked like death.

NO! I AM DEATH.

Oh crap, it was death.

THAT IS A PROPER NOUN. IT SHOULD BE A CAPITAL 'D'.

The Principal laughed. He hoped this English Teacher might be able to last a lot longer will class 7B than the last one.

''MUUUMMMMM!!! Sam ate the cakeeeee!!!!!''

I sighed, went into the dining-room and regarded the small figure pointing at my bemused son.

“I am not your mother and you can’t eat cake”, I said firmly. “Now either hoover the carpet, or sit still in the corner”.

With any luck the robot repair guy would arrive soon.
