It is disgusting... easily I can allow myself to be so distracted by the daily grind that I neglect this little space. I definitely need to dust away the cobwebs here, and to do that I'll need a little help. :)

Below is a list of items I've discovered and the location where I found each over the past four weeks.

* One leopard print sandal, size 8.5: found hidden in the shrub by the front door
* One skeleton - not in tact, but I definitely found the hip bones and at least 6 inches of the vertebral column: found scattered all over the back yard
* One small bat - think "billy club" - covered in blood stains: found in the very back of the cupboard above the refrigerator
* One china cup - white with gold trim: also found in a cupboard.
* Four spoons: two found under a tree by the back fence, one found in the dirt in the back yard, one found under a shrub in the front yard.

Based on that information, what do you think went on here with the previous tenants? Your job is to write a story (200 words max.) to unravel the mystery for me.

Post your story on your blog, and then leave the link in the comments section for this post. The scenario I like the best will be featured here on Monday, August 3rd.

One question--what kind of creature does the partial skeleton come from???

Good question! The answer: I wish I could tell you, but I just don't know my skeletons well enough, lol. Your guess is as good as mine. Could be animal...could be human... AAAAAAA!!!!!!

Okay, since my blog site is a Bible study it would not be appropriate to post my story there. So I have put it on my facebook page notes with only you listed as the one allowed to view. Let me know if you can't see it.

I posted, but it was almost 400 words.

I've got to figure out a way to let you all post here so that all can read these masterpieces - help! pjd or mimi?

Great stories! Keep submitting!

Mimi said...

wait til you're home, and then cut and paste 'em.

or ask us to put them in comments if you must.

Hey, I'm not ignoring you... I'm just attending to other things. I was hoping to write up something for this, but I have finally reached that point in my work year where I work 12 hour days and log in on weekends as well, and that's not likely to let up until late October.

Overworked and underpaid... how bourgeois.
