Hump Day Improvisation:

Okay, I decided that I needed something frivolous on my blog. I’ve been thinking about this for awhile. What should it be? What should I call it? Should I just invent silly stories and post them? But to my way of thinking that just isn’t enough fun. I want to involve all of you too. So here goes.

The rules: I will give three choices for the beginning of a story, joke, one-liner, or sentence or word. You pick what you want to do. Write in any genre. Write one sentence or two or three. Share a single word. Whatever strikes you when you read the three choices.

Rules continued. You need to refer to the sentence number that you selected so people reading can understand what you are saying. If you’re in a writing mood you can rewrite the whole thing or, if you’re like me, cut and paste it into the comments.

Rules continued: Keep it clean. This is not an x-rated blog and very young eyes may stumble upon this blog and be influenced by what you, or I write.

Rules continued: You don’t have to be a writer. You just need to be brave enough to share your idea.

Someday, when I figure out a good reward for participating I’ll let you know.

Here goes:

1. Once upon a time in a land not far away.

2. Alligators have been seen.

3. An alien visitor stopped by to say.

Hump Day Improvisation continues every Wednesday. Have fun.

Okay everybody: It's after midnight here, this must be Pacific Time. It is Wednesday despite what it say's above my blog. LOL

3. An alien visitor stopped by to say. "Greetings can I borrow a pan, one can of tomatoes and that slaw chopper gadget?" "No, it was not me that left those dusty foot prints, this is my first visit."

This struck me because I equate housework and the reason for it, to aliens :D

Thank you Jules, that was funny. I hate housework too.

Alligators have been seen strolling around in my garden. I asked them to leave but they just grinned and said, sorry, they were here first.

N. R. Williams said...

I love that Simon.

An alien visitor stopped by to say: "This here's a story about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue Two young lovers with nothin better to do."

It was then I realized that they learned our language like the Autobots in the modern-day Tranformers movie.

I asked them if they were here to take the money and run or if they drank coffee.

N. R. Williams said...

Alien coffee drinking smugglers. Oh, I guess there wasn't anything about smuggling. Nice job Alex.

Helen Ginger said...

Once upon a time in a land not far away,
A dragon landed with a thud and decided to stay.
He stuck his head in the river and took a huge slurp,
Munched on the townfolk, then settle back with a thunderous burp.


Peggy Frezon said...

Alligators have been seen...but it's much worse when they are felt.

N. R. Williams said...

Made me laugh Helen.

Peggy, you're right, I'd rather see the alligators than fill their bite.

KK Brees said...

To complete Peggy's thought: Alligators, like children, should be seen but not heard, felt, or definitely smelt (that would make them bait).

N. R. Williams said...

Oh, what a scary thought...though having had children I can affirm that they often smell.
