The War Of The Fur

Melody Rock
There was a cloud in the sky and it looked like a balloon with teeth that were jagged and raw like it just ate a poorly constructed falafel. Gene stared up with big wide gaping eyes and as he did the clouds changed and became new objects. The balloon with teeth turned into an elephant with a whip, a shark with a smile, and a pile of broken bricks and then finally a lizard. Gene snapped out of his cloud gazing when he discovered an army of ants crawling casually over his thick dense fur. He jump

A Series of Unexpected Events

Daniel
Hello, my name is Jeffrey and I have a crazy story about how I ended up here. Where is here? We must start at the beginning to answer that question.

Melody Rock
There was a monster living in his closet. He started shoveling all of his clothes in his dresser drawers to avoid using the closet. They wouldn’t fit very well but he made it work.  He was able to avoid the monster and get on with his life. His mother came in one morning while he was at school and saw all of his nice clothes stuffed into the few drawers he had. This did not please her. She worked very hard to buy him those clothes and he was treating them like discarded toys. She pulled the
