In the wake of the ever-popular "Keep a Word, Drop a Word" thread, let's write a story, adding one sentence at a time. Anybody up for this? Maybe we will create a wonderful work of literature and all become famous. : ) I'll start things off...

I looked to my left.

Excellent idea!!

I looked to my left.

I immediately and fervently wished that I'd looked to my right.

I looked to my left. I immediately and fervently wished that I'd looked to my right. There was a large green tree. Its branches looked contorted from the wind, but there wasn't even a breeze. A single, luscious pear hung from the highest branch.

A single, luscious pear hung from the highest branch. Unfortunately for my starving stomach, the trunk of the tree was crawling with enormous spiders.

Undaunted, I reached for the pear, and upon grazing it with my fingertips, it turned black, shriveled on the vine, and released a pungent cloud of milky smoke.

"What the ...?!" - I thought and woke up.

To my dismay, I discovered that the pungent cloud of milky smoke existed even in the waking world--at least, I reflected while pulling on my pants, the enormous spiders were gone.

An old man puffing a hefty cigar stared over me and muttered coarsely, "it's time."

I knew this was the moment I would have to pass the test and complete my training or else I would become a failure.

I donned my imaginary superhero outfit, musty and faded, and headed to the front door.

When I stepped outside, the wind was so strong it almost knocked me off my feet.

While Quickly buttoning my pants, I found something missing on the street that I see daily.
