So... But...




We've run into a few problems before playing games; i.e., getting off track. It still turned out to be fun, though, so we're going to play another game today and, hopefully, have some fun with it. We're going to play "So, But..." The way it works is: The story gets started with one line; for example,

So, Anna bought a new car yesterday.

The next commenter in line will pick it up with a "but" and end with a "so." For example,

So, Anna bought a new car yesterday, but...
But the battery died before she got home with it, so...

The next commenter to come along will take the "so" and run with it to continue the story, ending in a "but" for the next person to pick up; for example,

So, Anna bought a new car yesterday, but
The battery died before she got home with it, so
She pulled over and waited for a Good Samaritan to come along. But...
The man who stopped was wearing a scary mask, so...

See how it goes? Good! Let's get started.

Here's our opening line:

So, Leo put on a new suit and went to the restaurant to meet his blind date, but...


TWISTED LINGUISTICS sent a posse out after these Words Gone Wild today.

Alot - The opposite of alack, perhaps, or possibly something altogether else.

degrating - Punishing someone by shoving them through the grate.

To the contray - Choosing from various platters of convention food.

intesity - Degree of intestinal fortitude.

precident - Leader of the precinct.

posstings - Very intense forum messages.

management personell - Nell, the Human Resources lady.





What Your Pizza Reveals


Your appetite is pretty average. You don't go overboard - but you don't deprive yourself either.

You consider pizza to be bread... very good bread. You fit in best in the Midwest part of the US.

You like food that's traditional and well crafted. You aren't impressed with "gourmet" foods.

You are generous, outgoing, and considerate with your choices.

You are cultured and intellectual. You should consider traveling to Vienna.

The stereotype that best fits you is geek. You're the type most likely to order pizza to avoid leaving your computer.

But his date was actually blind and did not see him so

Kanrei said...

"The stereotype that best fits you is redneck. Your friends secretly agree. "

I may be a Floridiot and southern, but I am not a redneck! I am in Miami and therefore more northern than most =P

Camille Alexa said...

So he loosened his girdle with a sigh of relief, but...

Roxan said...

he popped the zipper on his pants, but they stayed up because of the beer belly so...

snowelf said...

he decided he should order another beer just in case, but...

Serena Joy said...

But when the barmaid brought it, she spilled it all over him, so...


You guys are doing a great job with this!

Kanrei said...

So he was suddenly thankful for his date's lack of vision, but

Seeley deBorn said...

"Your taste is rather complex and sophisticated. You consider yourself a gourmet - and a bit of a snob.

You are definitely unique and artistically inclined. You should consider traveling to Prague."

It tells me I'm a snob and I should leave the country....hmph, I don't think I like this particular quiz.


****



But his date's heightened sense of smell was strongly offended by his malt and hop aroma, so....

Kanrei said...

Seeley,
It called me a "redneck" so I am right with you on this quiz. I don't need to come here to be insulted; I have tons of people waiting to insult me already -D

Charles said...

he ordered the chicken curry for his date, to get the nasal passages running and hide the smell. So...

Charles said...

oops, that's But...

Serena Joy said...

Oh, geez, Kan & Seeley, I don't know what put such a burr up that quizz's butt. What on earth did you guys put on your pizza? LOL.

Oh, dear, Charles -- chicken curry and spilled beer. I'm afraid poor Leo's going to hurl before his evening is over.:-)

Kanrei said...

But she was allergic to curry and began sneezing and coughing and wheezing. She did not smell the ale, but perhaps this was a tad worse so

ThatGreenyFlower said...

So he got out his epinephrine injection kit, which he carried with him everywhere in case of emergency. But

leelee said...

but, the needle broke off when he tried to pierce his thigh through his wet pants, so

leelee said...

my pizza:

People may tell you that you have a small appetite... but you aren't under eating. You just aren't a pig.

You are a very picky pizza eater. Not any pizza will do. You fit in best in the Northeast part of the US. (I'm from NJ originally!!!!)

You like food that's traditional and well crafted. You aren't impressed with "gourmet" foods.

You are dependable, loyal, and conservative with your choices.

You are definitely unique and artistically inclined. You should consider traveling to Prague.

The stereotype that best fits you is geek. You're the type most likely to order pizza to avoid leaving your computer.

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Leelee. PizzaBoy says you're a geek like me. It pegged your personality traits pretty well, though.:)

G-Man said...

...so he ended snorting his dosage, and just like that he was good as new, But...

ThatGreenyFlower said...

his date, unfortunately, continued to cough and hack, and she had turned an unfortunate shade of blue. So...

ThatGreenyFlower said...

My pizza says this about me:

Eat less, fatass. Do you know how many calories are in that hand-tossed crust? Jesus, I wish it weren't all about "feeding your hunger" all the time.

And you have some spinach between your teeth, you loser. No one will ever love you now.

Gourmet? *SNORT* In your dreams! Just because YOU think mushrooms from a can are fancy doesn't mean they are.

You should travel to hell in a handbag, lady. Right now. Right this minute.

Serena Joy said...

Oh, my word, Greeny! I think we should picket the quiz writers. That's awful!

Sling said...

So he dialled "411"..you know..to get information on what to do when your date goes into anaphalactic shock,and you have a broken needle in your thigh,but..

ThatGreenyFlower said...

...he got a recording stating that his call was very important to the emergency call center, so would he please wait on the line for the next available representative. So...

Corn Dog said...

he waiting until his date died, but

The Grunt said...

then Jesus came by and did some pretty amazing shit with miracles, so...

MONA said...

so his date was resurrected and lo behold she had vision this time & saw this hedious guy with a pot belly and pants half down to his knees and a needle stuck in his thigh.. she screamed as she thought that the drug addict in front of her was about to rape her, but...

Seeley deBorn said...

when she turned to run she ran smack into the broad muscluar chest of the tall blonde bartender, so...

MONA said...

but the bartender's bare chest was tattoed with an evil ghoul and a dragon. She was so scared that she fainted in his arms. The police officer who had heard her scream earlier chose to come in at that moment and saw the bartender with the unconscious girl in his arms, he whiped out his gun & pointed it at him and told him to put his hands up. But...

MONA said...

correction: first line>> ...so the bartender held her close and his bare dhest was tatooed with...

Scary Monster said...

The cop had recently replaced his gun with a vibrator from he wife's special draw. He tried to cover up the embarrassing mistake, but

Serena Joy said...

This story is moving along terrifically. Thanks, you guys. Does someone want to finish it up with whatever happened when the cop made his embarrassing faux pas?:-)

ThatGreenyFlower said...

...the bartender smiled, "Is that a dildo in your hand, or are you just happy to see me?"

The cop and the bartender ran away together and kept all their toys in a special drawer for ever and ever after.

The end.

Serena Joy said...

Bravo, Greeny, for a rollicking good denouement! {{APPLAUSE}}

Hale McKay said...

Prolog: So, another of Serena's stories come to an end. But...

don't despair, for there will another.

There was harm done to needles or sex toys.

Hale McKay said...

Er ... epilog.

Serena Joy said...

Oh, yeah, Mike, the heck with the needles but God save the sex toys.:-)

Top cat said...

I loves me some pizza.
What Your Pizza Reveals

People may tell you that you have a small appetite... but you aren't under eating. You just aren't a pig.

You aren't particularly picky about pizza. It's so good... how could you be? You fit in best in the Western part of the US.

You like food that's traditional and well crafted. You aren't impressed with "gourmet" foods.

You are dependable, loyal, and conservative with your choices.

You have many conflicting and complementary layers to your personality. You should consider traveling to Australia.

The stereotype that best fits you is hippie. You knew it was coming.

Serena Joy said...

LOL, TC. Welcome to the Old Hippies Club.:)
