Story Time, Special offer on The Treasures of Carmelidrium

On Tuesday I gave away this award. Cool, isn't it. The three recipients didn't come by and claim it so it's up for grabs to anyone who wants it. Jules at Trying to get Over the Rainbow gave it to me. The only rule is to link back to the awards creator, who is the lovely, Michelle Gregory at Beautiful Chaos. So grab it folks, you know you want to.

Don't forget my special discount on, The Treasures of Carmelidrium. Now through April 30, 2011 only .99. What a steal! What a deal! And I promise not to use any more cliches in this post.

On to Story Time:

Story Time is a round robin. I will give the first line that you all embellish on. Keep it PG. It will remain live from Thursday through Saturday on my blog. I hope you all come by often and add more to the story. So here goes.

Based on the award:
