Ouch.

This is horrificly amusing. My first attempt:

Stories below a crowd gathered.
One volunteer soon stood by my side.
I gave in, stepped back and nudged them off the edge.

"I shot the deputy" I told the sheriff. Just then Bob Marley walked in and pointed a gun at the man. As I fled, I heard a shot.

I knew it would cost an arm and a leg to take lessons but juggling is my life, I think I was better before I paid for the class.

It looked like a hula hoop to me but he said it was a piece of cake and I'm adventurous so I tried it. 'Needs sugar' I mumbled.

I could never get the hula hoop to spin around me. Maybe if I knew all it needed was a little sugar I could have joined the masses of hula fans.

Another twabble:

I count the days until my disposal. Monthly, etched skin is peeled away. My one solace the kittens tattooed upon my face.

Finger lickin good

I love finger sandwiches. Particularly when de-boned and de-nailed. The extra effort makes them that much more tasty.

His hand hesitated on the switch.
She had answered incorrectly again.
Her scream died.

Romance is Dead

The engagement ring had rolled unnoticed under the sofa.
The finger, on which it once rested, lay oozing in the ash tray.

They arrived from the oceans and the far away ruins of ancient civilizations. Now they crowd our shores...Immigrants!

Note: A tongue and cheek jab at the polemic tone some people take about immigration. Also hoping the "ancient ones" feel came across.

She paused at the door.
'See you in six months, Mom.'
As the taxi sped east, the first snow cloud darkened the western sky.
*edited: see below - tried to make the trip more temporally and geographically appropriate.

As she faded away, walking south, the chill northern wind picked up.
