Ricky ignored his dad’s order to stay away from the leaf pile, and merrily dove in. Fire be damned!

KBilly, you are on fire. Figuratively, and not just because of the leaf pile incident. ;)

The lights glared, the room spun, and a sickening heat engulfed him. Damn this is a huge microwave!

Sure, the key board was great. Ergonomic. It was cutting edge technology at its best. But what in the world did it unlock?

The house was cold. Arthur pulled on another sweater. It had been too many years since coal had appeared in his stocking.

The Alien peered from the sewer grating. New York would fall first... Below it, Giant alligators silently approached.

Reminds me of an Escher print titled "Three Worlds". but no A or G please, unless these are proper nouns.

Here's one that crossed my mind. Enjoy!

The thing is, I need you to be… discrete, she said slyly, before reducing all the molecules in my body to simple elements.

Good concept!

But poor grammar. Quote the speech. Also slight semantics problem as "molecules" and "elements" overlap (Many elements occur in molecular form) and elements are not necessarily discreet.

Perhaps:

"The thing is, I need you to be… discrete," Jill said slyly, before reducing all the molecules in my body to single atoms.

Real, open sleigh rides are VASTLY overrated.

This one is based on a quote from Stephen King...

Despite his grim reputation, Steve had the heart of a small child.
He kept it in a jar on his desk.

The ice cream just didn’t seem right; it was bland and sticky. Wait, who put lard in the freezer?!

Add 2 egg yolks to 3 cups flour, and a dash of salt. Whisk until smooth, then fold in 1 lost soul.

While Santa napped, Rudolph vanished down the T-rex's maw. That's why an apex predator's guiding the sleigh this year.

You bastard! You sniped an idea I had in my reserve pile...

She had a lovely temperament and a pure heart.
Which she kept in a jar.
That's why I loved her dearly, but safely from afar.


Admit it, you've been snooping around my crawl space. :shock: :)
