Eric's Entry

Going to be kinda busy this fine and overcast day, so it's again time for that game. You know which one.

To entertain ourselves when we used to travel a lot, a friend and I used to come up with very strange stories following the formula found in Berenstains' B Book. We didn't stick to it totally, but tried to keep all nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and verbs starting with the same letter. Some of the letters work better than others, but I'm going to save my favorite for another time.

I'll kick it off, and feel free to follow in the comments. You don't need to use whole sentences... if you only can think of a word that fits, throw it in. No need to keep it clean. Repeat words are not a problem. Ready? Using the letter E:

"Egad!" exclaimed Ed, the extroverted engineer. "Elsie's eyeshadow looks like an explosion!"

Again, it's not a novel... characters may disappear and reappear at will. Just have fun with it!

"Evidently, everyone is evading Elsie, and easing elsewhere, an exodus... emigrating even, ere Elsie erupts over the epithets elicited from 'er eyeshadow," expressed Ernie. "'Elsie of the Evening' isn't exactly an epithet to be enjoyed."

"E's ain't the easiest are they?" entreatied Ed.

"Ease is extenuating... Elsie's extermination of emus, emissaries (Eric), and emirs is to be excogitated ere ease. Ease is the equivalent of excrement when examined in contrast to Elsie's executions," emphasized Enis.

"Eeeeee!" exclaims Erin, "End this extreme excrement of excursus."
