The Gauntlet; Downward She Is Thrown

I propose a challenge to anyone who may be reading, which is to say both the people whom I'm almost certain are reading and any others I may not know about.

Ahem. Here's the deal. Make a post in your blog explaining this challenge that I am about to explain to you, and request the contribution of two sentances, one begginning sentance and one ending sentance. You pick the pair of lines amongst the number that have been given you that you like the best, and write a 100-word something begginning with the first sentance and ending with the other.

If you decide to join in on the fun please:
(1) comment here to declare yourself in and lay down any trash talk you see fit, and
(2) link back to this page so that anyone who wishes to get involved may both be aware of everyone else involved and make everyone else involved aware of their involvment.

If you don't feel like it or don't have the time, well, you know, whatever...

Anyone who wants to give me a prompt feel free. Hopefully you're doing this, too but I won't be picky

Clarification: The wordcount refers to words that you yourself write


  1. I accept your challenge, feeble mortal!

    Here is my suggestion for you:


    It always starts with a murmur, and ends with a sting.


    "That'll be 200 bucks honey," she said in a barely comprehendible slur.

  2. I'll take up your challenge

    Your first setence shall be:

    "I woke up rather quickly when I realized Engelbert Humperdinck was sharing the bed with me, and both of us were taher naked."

    And your last sentence shall end as such:

    "... and that's how I became Pope."

  3. I accept your challenge. Eat my boogers, punks! Mwahahahaha!

    And I submit the following to you my dear Esoteric Wombat:

    The look of shock on Marla's face as I turned and ran from the alter was torturously burned into my memory.

    I clutched the teddy bear like a small child and promptly fell asleep.

  4. I will accept your challenge..

    Start: "I am not wearing any pants."

    Finish" "I am still not wearing any pants"
