  • There was once a giant t-rex that liked to eat everyone and everything! His name was ILjaijfskldn... or just "Oh crap there he is!" for short. He was absolutely terrifying and stuf

  • fed full of really bad jokes.

  • I felt like a pinata stuffed with the comedy writers from America's Home Videos. But, this is how wedding planning goes he thought as he slid

  • the ring back into his pocket. He'd gotten as far as the "would you" before the chaos of it all overwhelmed him. And what if it failed? He couldn't go through it again, nor put his

  • Chaka Kahn record collection in jeopardy again. His fear of failure was debilitating to the point that he could no longer

  • face any decisions about his life. In the morning he stumbled out of bed without removing his eyeshades or earplugs, and groped blindly into whatever situation came up. Usually

  • he could make to the bathroom, but this time there was a large hole in the floor. He fell for ten feet. When he removed his sleep shields, he could see small red eyes in the dark.

  • Tiny, beady red eyes he could only imagine would be his doom. He tried to remember if he had read about this in the Worst Case Scenario Handbook. He shook his head and

  • just ran. Fortunately, this is exactly what it says to do in the Worst Case Scenario Handbook if an alligator approaches. They are quite lazy creatures and do not care to chase

  • fast moving prey on land - unfortunately the "Worst Case Scenario Handbook" had nothing to say about what to do when chased by a hungry tyrannosaurus - - - GULP!

    LOLed when I read the first line of this story. Glad I didn't go with the Lion idea...

    how in the world could you have known about the beginning? sometimes it's just crazy when the story just happens to come full circle.

    This was fortuity fruity. I was looking for something that wouldn't be in the "Worst Case Scenario Handbook" and would end suddenly. By the way: great idea with the Handbook Camilla.

    I've been reading through some older stories and found another where Slim completed the "circle of life." http://foldingstory.com/wxryl/

    Good research - I'd forgotten about that one. Good story too. It's one of the pleasures of FS when the story comes full circle. I think the subconcious group memory may be playing a role. Anyone want to do a Ph.D. on FA?
