Fortunately - Unfortunately

Postby lo&m » Wed Apr 21, 2010 3:02 pm

Let's try a new game. It works like this.

* One person begins with a sentence (e.g., One day Little Johnny walked to the local shoe shop).
* The next person tells of something unfortunate that happens (e.g., Unfortunately, Little Johnny was hit by a refrigerator.).
* The following person contributes a fortunate event (e.g., Fortunately, the refrigerator was made entirely of marshmallows).
* The third person will contribute an unfortunate event (e.g., Unfortunately, these marshmallows had poisonous spikes on them), and the process is repeated.
* The fourth person will contribute a fortunate event (e.g., Fortunately, the spikes were made of Jello ), and so on, and so on.

Game has no end point. It ends when we get bored of it.

I'll start us off.

John goes out to a country music night.

Isn't anyone playing in? At the risk of getting accused of playing with myself.

Fortunately the self contained act had lost his backing tracks.

Unfortunately the amusement... I mean...fight had settled down into the icy glares and sarky comments low enough not to be directed at the other person but loud enough to be heard by them, so beloved of the english. So they had to come out from behind the bar.

Fortunately to be at the front of the queue and ahead of the crowded gathering of water drinkers who tried to push in while muttering about drunken country music fans with no manners or dancing skills, who hogged the bar.

Unfortunately the bar manager had to go for a lie down as a result of the ruckus leaving the bar staffed by a pair of harrassed students.
