So far for the writing we've got me, (possibly) Havacoman, Fleshnblood, JJJ, and Miccy.
So I will begin. We'll go in order of posting. This means I'll go first, Havaco next, and so on and so forth.
Here we go:
Amanda was a very ordinary person, living a very ordinary life. She lived in an apartment with her roomate, Shanna, had a fish named Skippy, and worked as a salesperson at a clothing store.
Yes, indeed Amanda was very, very ordinary. Yet she dreamed of greater things, of adventure, excitement, and perhaps a bit of romance.
It was her turn to do the grocery shopping this week, so she drove over to the grocery store with the shopping list. The list read:
One gallon of milk
One carton of eggs
One bag of flour
Two bags of chocolate chips
Six jars of gherkins
Amanda reflected upon how very lucky she was to have a roomate who was so fond of baking, even though Shanna had an unusual fondness for gherkins.
Amanda entered the store and grabbed a basket. Just as she got to where the milk was stored, she let out a gasp.
Why did Amanda gasp?
A. She saw someone she recognized
B. The store was out of milk
C. She just remembered something important
Okay, so I'm new at this! Give me a break.
All right, to the voting! I won't vote unless I need to break a tie, since it's my segment. Havacoman (if he wants to) is next up to write.
