I thought it would be nice to have a separate thread to discuss the Chain Story in progress.

Writers and readers can use this thread to comment on what's happening so far.

Before this story can be completed, we must do the following:

1. find out what the writer did to offend the recipient of the letter.

2. explain how Jiminy (introduced by Michael K) fits into the story.

3. explain how duct tape and the lawnmower fit into the story.

4. translate what the grasshopper said, and presumably tie that somehow to the duct tape.

5. probably we'll need to find out who the recipient of the letter is.

Oh, this is so strange...

"translate what the grasshopper said, and presumably tie that somehow to the duct tape."

That was cruel of MK to make those tie togehter. Well here I go..

Okay, my scene is up. Since MK was mean enough to make me tie the grasshoppers shout with the ducttape (and I did that), I decided to be mean too. Someone else has to explain how a grasshopper taped to a bug display resulted in someone breaking his leg.

HAW!

You've also added a couple constraints to our story. One is, whatever the terrible thing is, it happened that morning.

The other is, it can no longer be a girlfriend (he's married) or wife (he refers to his wife in third person) that he offended. So the letter has to be to someone else.

"explain how a grasshopper taped to a bug display resulted in someone breaking his leg."

Heh...I thought of a way to do that, but someone else is going to have to take this scene! :)

"Since MK was mean "

Sorry...I couldn't resist. :D

Josiah's piece opens up a nice possibility for who the letter is directed to...

:-) Well, I had an idea for that too, but I couldn't figure out a way to write it into that particular piece. :-)

maybe... I've had a couple ideas brewing for the other one too. I just haven't had time to punch them all out. :-P
