WRITE A SHORT STORY CONTEST #4

Monkeynips13 won contest #3. Therefore, he will give us the phrase for contest #4.

Here it is: "There he stood paintbrush in hand ready for battle."

As with the previous lines, entrants can feel free to place punctuation anywhere they like.

The rules will be the same as before. Write your story and PM it to Tuzilla. I will collect them for posting as a group. The stories can be any length up to a typewritten page. The only editing will be for censoring the occasional expletive. I used one in my story, so don't feel as though they are banned outright.

We'll gather entries for about a week or so.

Why did no one inform me before now that I was actually a boy? It might have spared me a lifetime of very akward moments. lol

Maybe it is because of the rather large ears and the very short hair. Hey, ya can't really tell.

Koota, you've partied at the Bluebird and swam at Lake Monroe ?

Ok. I'll admit that I have not partied at the Bluebird, but I *have* eaten (and drank) several times at the Irish Lion. (GREAT Blarney Puffballs! Don't miss 'em!)

Course, I could have partied at the Bluebird but just don't remember it ....

But yes, I have been submersed in Lake Monroe.

Is there still time to submit a story?

Sry ... I got sidetracked by work and forgot about it. My job takes up WAY to much of my Sploofus time.







Note to self ... find a way to Sploof at work.
