a twenty-one and seven…

This is a royal twist on an old meme. The Queen just wish she’d found these gems when she was actually twenty-one.  This is how it works: You must follow the directions to the letter.

1. Find the nearest bookshelf of your favorite reads, cookbooks, tech books, magazines. It doesn’t matter. This will work for all print media. If you don’t have seven books lined up on a shelf, grab the first seven you see around the house.
2. Book #1: Turn to page 21. Read the 21st sentence (you may have to turn the page).
Write it down.
3. Do the same with the first seven books or articles you see. The sentences will make a paragraph. You must write them down in the order you found them.
4. When you are finished, read over your “story” and title it.
5. Show us your bibliography at the end of this meme.

Roadkill:  A Love Story

OK, Cue!  IBM confirms it must be the same man.  For me and most other writers I know, writing is not rapturous.  The average yodel means “My Dick is Freezing!”.  A little gentle force, however, worked magic: we sandwiched the salted slices between paper towels and pressed down with enough force to extrude any remaining juices (and the seeds) but not enough to squish the slices flat.  Began drinking heavier, sleeping less, chain smoking, feeling in some way he’d been taken for a sucker. Go away. 

1. The Complete Monty Python’s Flying Circus: All The Words, Volume II

3. Bird by Bird – Anne Lamott

  1. Wow! That’s some story, but it all made sense when I saw your list of books. Good one.

    LMAO!!! yours i think was the best!!! “My Dick is Freezing!”. A little gentle force, however, worked magic: “.. hillarious!

  3. LOL… that’s some love story!

  4. Oh man! that was hilarious! how odd that #4 next to #5 was funnier than anything by monty python!

  5. LOL, that was funny. I can’t say I loved the image my mind created after reading ““My Dick is Freezing!”. A little gentle force, however, worked magic: we sandwiched the salted slices between paper towels and pressed down with enough force to extrude any remaining juices” but it made my chuckle quite loudly.

    Thanks! Good one.

  6. And now a modernized version of this concept…the seventh sentences of the seventh posts from seven random links in your blogroll:

    Blog Bologna by House of Lime, Nurse Ratched, Babz, snowelf, Mistress of The Dark, retrophaze and Xmichra

    What I was really hungry for was a giant bowl of Count Chocula mixed with Frankenberry sitting in the milk until it was a soggy mess. Going to hang with Tony and Lori as well…. Now, I don’t want to say this too loud but I do have some med experience and was already using this cream on him. Cartoon monkeys are cute. Listen to his music here. Update your links and enjoy the new digs! My tagee list is at the bottom of this post.

  7. That was hilarious. Talk about unintentional pornography. 🙂

  8. That was painful, erotic, and icky…. all at the same time.

    (Don’t tell anybody I said that.)
