How about a rhopalic story game?

Rhoplic = Having each successive word longer by a letter or syllable.

A few weeks ago, the word of the day was rhopalic and AWAD readers were challenged to compose a rhoplalic news headline.

This was mine: Clandestine rendezvous uncovered: senator’s furious jilted lover uses axe! Unfortunately I did not win the tee shirt…

Here are the Roolz:

Add one sentence to the story. Your rhopalic sentence may start short and get longer, start long and get shorter, or go both ways. Let’s put a minimum of four words per sentence. The story doesn’t have to make a lot of sense – the goofier the better!

Here we go!

Bo and Mary pedal easily through pleasant farmlands.
