Calvin Seeks Adventure

Calvin the little dinosaur went looking for Adventure.

He saw Stully the old Stegasaurus. “Do you know where I can find Adventure?” asked Calvin.

“Pshaw!” said Stully. “I used to eat Adventure for breakfast every morning! But now there’s a drought.”

“Oh,” said Calvin. “Thank you.” He kept searching anyways.

Cataloguing Errors

Kevin clung desperately to the lip of the mile-high cliff, wondering which of today’s six poor choices had been most to blame for his predicament.

His sweat-slick palms gave way, and too late he noticed the ledge he could have dropped safely onto.

So, the seventh mistake, then.

A Time Away

“I need a vacation.”

“Oh? Where to?”

“Into my own brain, I think. An imagination vacation.”

“What are you going to do while you’re there?”

“Just relax.”

“Lucky you. My imagination doesn’t let me relax. Always an adventure going on.”

“That must be difficult.”

“Actually the hardest part is escaping!”

So Long, and Thanks For All the Rides

It was late. Mintred and Neldred were on their way home from Neldred’s retirement party from Municipal Dolphin Transport.

Suddenly, they heard a shout and a splash. Hardly thinking, Neldred dove and kicked, arriving just in time to save the man’s life.

Thus began a series of new aquatic adventures.

This story is based on a series of tweets in which I asked people to guess what form of transport I was riding.


Tale of Wonder

The ancient bard settled more comfortably into his furs and breathed in deeply. The air held the scent of pine needles, campfire smoke, and eager anticipation.

His audience held their breaths with rapt attention, awaiting the bard’s words of adventure, beauty, and wisdom.

The bard opened his mouth to begin…

@gameking218: “I forgot the Smores,” he said. Everyone up and left.

@VikkieTheMimm: …but alas, he’d lost his voice. Darn that Mage Flu.
