We have a few of threads like
these >

'A Story 4 Words Only'

and 'Finish the Sentence'

but I was thinking at the beginning of a year,
'twould be fun to start a new one where
EVERYONE [interested or on for a laugh] would join in and make it fun..

and Offbeaters are already known for
their wit and imagination;

this time a bit more outrageous,
waay out fantasy ie..

'Hey folks, did you all hear
Vee is finally meeting D Farina at a huge
Hollywood gathering'

then someone catches on to
that and continues to list who'll be present, etc

or....

similar variations on that
theme, total exaggeration.. and pure fantasy..

Only two rules apply here>

1.

NO nastiness, personal digs or causes for libel !

2.

To keep some sort of sequence,
eventho' the story can twist and turn all
over the place [like all our lives]

Come on, let's have a go..

life is short.

[Thanks]

Once upon a time,
in the far away land of Offbeat, their lived
a race of people who were smart, clever, witty
and adept at fending for themselves,
one day very late in the year 2012 the world as
we had known it .. ended, but strangely, all those who
wrote on OFFBEAT were, somehow saved...

this new thread, and somehow no one responded...

could see it(: and for that reason ....

Hello Grace
The first place I ever posted was a local thread in a city with 1500 residents just last year. Hardly anyone is even registered to post and many do play the games of trolls.

I then posted in our local politics. I did have the opportunity to meet with one of the registered profiled members. I wasn't registered so this meeting was arranged for all in that thread to witness, though few actually believed it happened.

We met at a local restaurant in my area of this state and it was a wonderful get together. We visited for nearly four hours and I was thrilled to have dared to have done that.

He and I laughed and cut it up and we didn't talk politics.
:)))

This is a nice idea for a discussion. Thanks for letting me share.

One more thing Ms Grace,
While you and did have ourselves a misunderstanding of sorts, I really appreciated you offered me another chance to give you another impression.

It's so easy to type at 98wpm and given the temperment out here on occasions, some are liable to write things that may not actually reflect how they feel and be understood.

A sense of humor is always good, but even a good joke can go horribly wrong in certain rooms. A dry sense of humor really isn't adviced in a room full of strangers.

Peace
:)))

And so we find ourselves in the midst of a new year and first month of that year. Does anyone feel it is going better then last year, the same, or want to report a horrible beginning? I have not had enough time to see what kind of year it is, but I think the first few weeks could be a lot better in real life.

Hello Stocking - nice to see you. Hope you are doing well. I've enjoyed you over at that Last Post Wins and I have brought my new profile in there and I look forward to seeing you there some more.
Hope you have a great evening and weekend too.

Hello Vee, I'm struggling in real world. A very deceitful person used a key I had given to her one week prior to walk into my home at one in the morning when she believed I wasn't there because my car was not in drive for three days. I made a noise disturbance over the matter and my landlord doesn't believe me and is trying to evict me over the noise disturbance. I don't know how to fight this as I don't have money for a lawyer. Not a good start to this new year. I'm quite devastated over it.

Haha - you're funny. As I said it's so difficult to write.
Fold in half - put the round edges into each other. Pull out edges to flatten a bit and then fold that over. Go the the flat end and fold that once and then fold one last time and then tri-fold it. Got it?

I swear I was born to be a housewife. I know how to take care of the household duties and I'm very efficient at it.
