The Surprising Meal – a Round Robin Writing Snippet

On April 4th, 2018 the Ink Slingers Guild (ISG) had some round-robin writing fun! We each wrote a sentence or two and then passed the paper to the next person who added to it and passed it along to the next person and on down the line. Here is one of several mini-stories created this way.  We hope you are as entertained as we!


“The Surprising Meal”

I couldn’t stand the thought of eating one more hotdog but the way that kid looked at me, I reached for another. My eyes narrowed at the kid in response, showing him I was up to the challenge. The first bite went well enough, it was the second where problems began. Everything in my stomach rolled and heaved, threatening to come up again, but I forced it down again, determined to see it through. And then I felt it, the warp worm; I should have tasted it over the mustard and now I was done for.
