Story Game

StoryGameIt’s time to play The Story Game again. Here’s how it works. I’ll start a story. You continue it in comments. Each commenter picks up where the last leaves off. In a few days I’ll give it an ending and post our story with the links to everyone who participated under the heading, “Contributing Authors”.

You can play as many times as you want. If someone derails the story will one of you put it back on track? Thanks for playing along and have a great day.

Here’s the beginning of our new story: Fall is here and everyone is enjoying the cooler weather. Well everyone except for Barb who is annoyed with just about everything. First there was…

Paul & Mary Lou

StoryGameThis is the completed Story Game of “Paul and Mary Lou” that you all did an outstanding job in authoring. Summer will be over in a flash and Paul still hasn’t done all the things he wanted to do. He was going to ask Mary Lou out, but he thought he should get in shape first so she wouldn’t be able to resist him.

He decided he would start jogging but his first day out didn’t turn out well for him. After jogging for some time, he noticed one of his shoe laces was loose and as he bent down to re-tie the shoe lace, his jogging pants ribbed wide open at the crotch seam.

Paul thought what the heck am I gonna do now I still haven’t finished the spaghetti sauce so he quickly went back home where the spaghetti was sitting on the stove. He was lucky it hadn’t caught on fire. He turned the burner off so he could go upstairs to take a shower and change his clothes and just as he was naked and stepping into the shower he heard someone at the door. He immediately turned off the shower, and ran downstairs NAKED!

Then Paul heard a sound from the bedroom saying, Paul, I’m ready for you? He thought, oh boy, I’m ready and he stepped into the bedroom but oh my goodness there were six dogs and six cats in bed with her. Now what do I do? Before he could decide, he heard a strange “baa” coming from the closet and when he opened the door a sheep came out. He was stunned. He took a deep breath and then he lassoed that sheep and led him to the door to send the sheep outside, but as he opened the door too late he noticed that there was someone standing on the front porch who had just seen him naked!

Quickly he said, “It’s not what it looks like. I did not have sex with that sheep!” But he looked on the floor and there was a copy of Bill Clinton’s autobiography and it was open to the page where Bill said those exact words. “Paul” Mary Lou said, “If this is a bad time I can come back later.” Just then a Muslim came by and gave Paul a big thumbs up! Don’t worry. I’m from the middle east, where men are men, women are cattle, and sheep and goats are fun.

Let’s take a walk and talk about it. So Paul and Mary Lou took a long walk and talked about why they can’t seem to get together anymore, and then Mary Lou knew why. It’s because Paul is so forgetful that he left the house with a half done pot of spaghetti on the stove, six dogs, six cats and another women still in his bed. Why, he couldn’t even remember where he was supposed to pick up the special dessert he had ordered.

Paul then said, “How about we complete the cooking of spaghetti and have it? Afterwards get rid of the cats, dogs and cattle and the other woman in bed immediately. Forget all that and we get into the bed and Mary Lou gasped! “I wouldn’t go within a ten foot pole of that bed full of animals and who the heck is ‘the other woman’ in your bed?

Being of sound mind and body, Paul quickly responded, Mary Lou soon we will be going on our cruise to the Caribbean on the carnival Breeze. Are you ready? Mary Lou screamed to him, ” Not when you’re naked!” “Really, Paul, I’ve heard of Cruise Casual, but this is ridiculous! Now be a love and turn down the bed and order us some room service. I’m craving some cheesecake and coffee.”

And then Mary Lou surprised Paul by crawling into bed Naked! “Ooh, Mary Lou,” Paul gushed. “You aren’t wearing any clothes. I told you we needed to eat dinner first. I’m starving.” Mary Lou frowned. She was just trying to spice things up, but it seemed all Paul wanted to do was eat. Who cared about room service?

At which point the sharknado smashed through the door and went EF-5ingly for the veggie tray that had just been delivered because Mary Lou forgot that Paul called for room service just so he could sneak a Viagra patch before Mary Lou could guess that he was ‘roid toyed, which sent Mary Lou into an absolute fit because Mary Lou realized that he didn’t need the Viagra patch because he was a viral Italian. Paul turned to Mary Lou and realized that she was sound asleep. Oh well.
