Just tell a story. It could be from life, or just something you made up. Whatever. Just tell a story.

I'l start. I woke up, but i wasnt in my bed. i was on the floor next to my bed, so I got up, got back into bed, and went to sleep.


That was lame, I know. but We aren't judging (at least, I'm not).

I didn't know that my wife had jammed her feet into my back and shoved me off. I found that out from her the next morning, as I handed her coffee and a cinnamon roll. "You're outta the bed, permanent, next time," she said.

@edgarblythe,
I went to the gym at 5am this morning and worked out for 45 minutes. It wasn’t until I finished that I realized I had my shorts on backwards.

@hamilton,
A little boy catches a frog to enter into the local frog jumping contest at the summer fair. After a week of serious anticipation he's all proud of his frog and hoping he will win, but the contest turns out to be a farce, the frogs jump everywhere, nobody pays attention, people wander by aimlessly and somebody carelessly steps on his frog and kills it.

I was going to technical school one summer, and it started at 8:00 a.m. I had to get up at 5:00 a.m. in order to get ready and catch my three buses to be there on time. I'd come home, exhausted, eat dinner, go to bed and do it all over again.

One night, I came home and fell asleep on the couch. After a bit, I woke up. Disoriented, I looked at my watch. 6:15!!! OMG, I was going to be late (a real no-no at the school). I ran to the kitchen to confirm the time - yep, 6:18! Oh ****! I ran out the door to the bus stop, sweating all the way. WHen I finally to the school, everything was locked up tight even though it should have been open. I paced up and down in front of the door, waiting for someone to arrive. Nobody ever did. Was it a Statutory holiday? I couldn't remember what day it was. After pacing for about half an hour, I went to a local grocery store. I went up to the owner and asked what time it was - his time confirmed mine. I wandered outside, dazed and confused. I felt like I was in a Twilight Zone movie. I went back to the school - still locked. Finally, I decided to go home.

WHen I eventually got there, it was dark, making me feel more and more like I was in a Twilight Zone movie. Weird. I walked into the living room and turned on the tv and was vaguely listening to the news when after a while they mentioned the date - I was - WHAT? It was the same bloody day.

That was over 30 yrs ago and I have since done that at least once more.

@Mame,
Great!
just something I forgot to mention, you CAN tell stories from books, or what not, so long as you give credit.

I woke up, at 5:30. Because my alarm was going off. I got up, got dressed, and went to swim practice. there, I talked to friends, and swam 10000 yards, then went and did running, pushups, and weightlifting. It was very challenging, and every day I went home sore. But I kept going because I wanted to improve myself, and make people proud!


I'm out of it with story telling, right now, sorry. I'l do better later.

@hamilton,
One of my daughter's schoolmates believed that he was the inspiration for Harry Pottter, after JK Rowling spotted him on a train. I did a bit of research, he wasn't spotted by JK Rowling at all, it was Jim Henson.

@izzythepush,
I knew a Jim Henson... he lived on my street in pittsburgh. I think he was a physical therapist. He was very nice.

Okay then, Hamilton...

Once upon a time there was a princess who slept on a bunch of mattresses under which there was a pea. The pea gave the princess the most wicked backache. There was no nurse, doctor or naturopath in town so she just had to suck it up. The end.
