Hey, I forgot about this game! This is so cool! You know, it could also be fun to start it on a Monday, with just one sentence or phrase. Then somebody could add to it with the next day's word throughout the week. And if there's more than one story line, who cares? It's our game and we can make the rules!

Did somebody say use the five weekly words in one ______ ?

How about a limerick? [ducking-for-cover-e]

Maybe just a one-day/word limerick ?

There is a sparty's game thread and a limerick thread already. Yes, fermented duck eggs for you, Wofa! Why not let this be clean as it came, a weekly phrase. No rools, no glittering prizes.

I admire Blither's clean compact phrases. Just enjoy!

There is, indeed, a Sparteye's Game thread, and I was the last to post on it, about a month ago. I am still patiently waiting for someone to take up my last challenge. No hurry - it'll come in time, no doubt.

It'sure žs a crazy laugh story and the words do fit (bow Candy). On second thought it's a weird story. How did he get it? Did he have the key, if so how can you have the key of a safe you've never looked inside and not want to open it.

Did he sell it cheap because the key was missing. Was it a stolen safe? High time to set a PI on the case.

I had all those same questions too...Bran and no answers yet.

I hope more people have a go at penning a sentence this week...the words are looking interesting.

Despite the obstructive paraphenalia inherent in committees, our village Women's Institute and the Mother's Union, after years of mutual antipathy that reached down to their very viscera, declared a truce by promising not to use their respective insignia as graffiti on each other's meeting halls!
