Three Word Story
« on: May 31, 2009, 11:12:07 PM »
For those of you who haven't done this before - This is a communal story that we can all contribute to.  Make it up as we go.  Each reply to the thread should have three words, no more, no less.  Three shall be the number of words thou shalt write, and the number of the writing shall be three.  Four words shalt thou not write, neither write thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three.  Five is right out!

Anyway, each set of words carries on the story from where it left off, though you are completely free to take the storyline wherever you want (within the bounds of common civility).  You are not permitted to follow up your own entry (that would be 6 words! - see above for further clarity).

I will get things going (Yes, I know there are more than three words in this message  :P).

In the beginning...
"That really is truly amazing. That is so amazingly amazing I think I'd like to steal it." - Zaphod Beeblebrox
