Joe – Story Game

This is the completed Story Game of “Joe” that you all did an outstanding job in authoring. It’s almost spring and the blossoms are appearing here and there throughout the area. Joe has decided that this year he’s going to do what he’s wanted to do for years. He’s going to join in on the adventure of a lifetime. He pulled out his bag to begin to pack starting with his adventure hat and some goodies to eat.

He also decided to take his trusty cat Bottoms. Together they quickly got on a cruise ship to begin their Adventure of a Lifetime. Bottoms fell asleep so Joe started to unpack. Once everything was unpacked and put away, Joe realized that he had forgotten to bring along the most important things for an adventure like this. He had forgotten his magic rope, torchlight, navigator, and smartphone. Thank goodness he didn’t forget the catnip. What’s a trip without a little catnip?

Bottoms immediately ripped opened the catnip and then ran around the ship and got got eaten by a shark when he fell over board. Joe said, “Bottoms up” and the shark released the cat. Oi you have just tried to eat my Bottoms you nasty piece of work now go get me a towel to dry my poor scared Bottoms. Joe called for the captain of the ship and told him he was not happy about the whole shark situation and demanded to know what was going to be done about it.

The captain told him that he should learn to control his cat better! Joe was not very pleased with the Captain’s comments. He marched off and later he went dinner at the captain’s table and sat next to a very beautiful blonde woman. Discussing a few things, she asked him if he would like to come to her cabin for a night cap. He said I’m looking for adventure, but am happily married, but could you take my cat off my hands, my wife is allergic and I need to change the cat box and vacuum before she comes home tomorrow night with pizza and beer.

The beautiful blonde agreed to take Bottoms and Joe went home and waited for his wife to arrive with the pizza and beer. They had a wonderful evening and she never mentioned the absence of Bottoms. She didn’t call him a jerk for going on a cruise either. She was just happy he came back home. Joe came to the realization that he’s never going to have an Adventure of a Lifetime, but that’s okay because he’s a happy man.

Story Game

It’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: It’s almost spring and the blossoms are appearing here and there throughout the area. Joe has decided that this year he’s going to do what he’s wanted to do for years. He’s going to…

Barb – Story Game

This is the completed Story Game of “Barb” that you all did an outstanding job in authoring. 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 a letter she just received yesterday from her great aunt Paula, announcing she was coming for a visit. Barb hadn’t seen Great Aunt Paula in over 40 years because of that dreadful fiasco at the family reunion.

Paula made an absolute spectacle of herself that day when she accidentally pushed Uncle Jim into the pool and his pants fell off. Luckily he did retrieve his wallet, only to drop it and helplessly watch it sink to the bottom of the pool. Then he just stared blankly, wondering how he got himself into this mess.

Uncle Jim didn’t blame Barb, but Aunt Paula did, and made her use the pool tools to try to retrieve the wallet, which she did attempt, but those tools are so long handled she gave up trying and decided to drain the pool instead. But all that water ended up flooding the surrounding area taking Jim’s wallet with it the situation got too overwhelming for Aunt Paula and she passed out while the water and Uncle Jim’s wallet went down the street and into the storm drain. Alas, there was no way to remove the grate from the drain inlet and retrieve the wallet.

There were only two options left. Either call a city crew out to retrieve the wallet or attempt getting her slightly fluffy hips between the grate and the opening below the concrete curb. She could use a fishing pole to try and retrieve it, but that meant she had to go borrow one from her grumpy neighbor Ted who did not like her because Aunt Paula was a bit of nosy neighbor. So she was not well liked but Ted loaned her the fishing pole anyway.

So off to try to fish the wallet out but that was going to take forever so they decided to call out the City crew. The crew arrived pretty quickly and were able to get the wallet out with a long handled net. Unfortunately when they fished it out several things fell out of the wallet that Uncle Jim had been hiding.

One of the the things was a condom, which had been there since the 60’s. Aunt Paula suddenly screamed because she remembered giving Uncle Jim that condom. They were supposed to meet that night for their usual tryst, but after the pool thing it just never happened. That had ended their love/lust affair, all because she accidentally pushed him in the pool. Uncle Jim’s wife couldn’t understand why he would have a condom in his wallet, but that was Uncle Jim’s problem. How Uncle Jim’s wife never found out about their affair was a mystery. Or does she know? Does Barb know? Perhaps this is the reason that nobody seems to like Aunt Paula very much.
