The Story Game

It's time to play The Story Game again. Here's how it works. I'll start a story. You continue it in comments. Each commenter picks up where the last left off. In a few days I'll give it an ending and post our story with the links to everyone who participated under the heading, "Contributing Authors".

You can play as many times as you want. If someone derails the story will one of you put it back on track? Thanks for playing along and have a great day.

Here's the beginning of our new story: The weather is warming up and the birds and the bees are doing their thing.  Seymour the pet rock is at it again. This time he...

  14. janitor turned for he was startled from the noise of a rock falling to the floor. Thinking, "Who threw that?" The janitor picked Seymour up and placed him on his cart. "Chain Gangs are getting pretty careless these days, coming in off the rock quarries and just leaving stuff everywhere. I guess I'll take this one back out to the fields when I leave," the janitor said aloud. Seymour was quite happy with this information and waited on the janitor's cart until he finished his duties. The janitor left The Stoney Lonesome and made his way to the quarry. Once there, the janitor took Seymour and...

After the investigation Seymour was taken as evidence and booked into the evidence locker. Meanwhile an escape report was being made at The Stoney Lonesome and an all points bulletin for the recapture of Seymour The Pet Rock was put out. Seymour peeked out of the evidence bag and began to plan his...

  21. escape by means of identity theft. There was another evidence bag on a table across the room. The evidence bag was from a liquor store robbery where some drunk walked past a liquor store, and found a large rock beside a telephone pole. Not being able to resist the temptation of all that booze, the drunk wailed the rock through the plate glass window to get at the booze. When the Cops arrived, they took the rock as evidence of the robbery. Seymour thought that if I switched places with that rock, I would be able to escape easily, for no one would identify the rock from the liquor store theft as being Seymour-The Wanted Rock. Seymour easily switched places with the other rock -- for Robbie Stone was still unconscious from being hurled through the liquor store window. Seymour was really pleased and quite positive that he could make a clean break at the first moment of opportunity. At last the moment came, and Seynmour.....

  22. was picked up by the Evidence Clerk and handed to the Robbery Detail Detective and taken to Judge Jeremy Sandstone's Court. The Defendant, Rocky Tornado, was asked by Judge Sandstone if he was ready to plead guilty or if he was going to have to be convicted. Rocky Tornado plead guilty and was sentenced to hard time on the rock pile chain gang. Judge Sandstone then asked to see the evidence brought by the Detective and saw Seymour. Seymour tried to be anonymous, he tried to be someone else, but he recognized Judge Jeremy Sandstone as Julia Sandstone's father! Suddenly Judge Sandstone's Court was changed to Family Law and...
