    Cool New Word

    Here is how this game is played. The previous poster gives a word that needs to be incorporated into the next poster's sentence. The new sentence must relate to the previous sentence, sort of the unfolding of a story.

    window
    He sat by the window and saw her walking by.

    leaf
    She turned towards the bench and bent down to pick up a beautifully colored leaf from the walkway and stuck it into the book she was carrying.

    Then, returning the book to her weathered backpack, she continued along her way.

    He watched her following the path, and then she vanished from his sight only to appear again after she had passed a hedge.

    And as he watched, beginning to day-dream, an ominous-looking panel van, painted a menacing red, sped up beside her.

    Two masked guys jumped out of the open sliding door, snatched her and dragged her into the van.

    He immediately ran out to help her but, by the time he got outside, the only evidence that she had been there was the fading smell of her musky perfume and the van speeding towards the nearby woodland.

    Inside the van, though, the kidnappers were in for a surprise, as a luminous line began growing down the middle of her forehead.

    The line got large and larger, now spanning from her head to her waist. The kidnappers' eyes where fixated on hers, as if under a hypnotic trance. Like a snake's, her skin was shedding. Suddenly, there was an explosion, and the van was no more. All that was left was the woman; the one alive kidnapper, sobbing out of both loss of his friend and shock; and a jar of Kenco Instant Coffee which was embedded firmly in the cold dead hands of the less-fortunate kidnapper, who had been making coffee before a sharp implement from inside the van was sent hurtling towards him in the explosion.

    She had shed the snake skin, no disguise necessary now any longer -- they were on to her -- she moved her head to light up her surrounding, picked up the book with the pretty leaf inside and whacked the remaining kidnapper over the head with the book.

    Running down darkened corridors on the flight of escape, she turned a corner and noticed dark shadowy figures engrossed in a conversation while the smoke of their cigarettes clouded the distant light, she carried on slinking though the darkness..

    Only stopping when a beam of artificial light from above could finally elucidate her from the swirling fog below.

    Her bare shoulder had not shed the snake skin yet, so she rubbed it and pulled it off.

    As she dropped the last of her loose skin, her teeth shone like fire under the light of the hovering chopper, while Ethel and Lucy ran away through the smokey fog, holding their chicken and screaming.

    "Oh boy" said Lucy to Ethel "do you think we can get away from this slinking skin shedding and teeth glowing monster? Have you ever seen such a thing?" The chicken flopped its wings. The chopper moved ever closer.

    The glow of her forehead grew ever brighter. The turbulence of the situation was about to become fatal.

    Just then, in a stroke of total chance, Lucy and Ethel tripped upon something which would prove valuable that night.

    But Rudy, with alligator agression, continued pounding everyone with bad jokes...

    Because it was only for tourists.
