The Last Shall be First
« on: February 22, 2009, 08:56:08 AM »
How about a new game?

We write a sentence. The next person writes a sentence beginning with the last word of the previous sentence.

Like this:

Here is a sentence.

Next person:

Sentence structure must follow certain rules.

Next person:

Rules are just society's way to curb our fun.

on and on and on.


First sentence:

Let's play a game.

Applause is like strong liquor to the aging actors or showmen.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Showmen who enjoy their liquor are the best showmen in the business!
