CREATE A SENTENCE - ROUND 4! (JANUARY 14, 2010)

As long as my peers keep playing this game, I'll continue to keep on posting!

Okay...same-o, same-o! Using the last word of the prior player's sentence, create a new sentence of your own. The next player will use the last word of your sentence as the beginning word of his/her sentence.

(For our newcomers)
Example:
What are those cats up to "now"?
The next player uses the word "now" and starts a new sentence.
"Now" I lay me down to sleep.
Next sentence would begin with the word sleep.

Okay, I'll start!
