I just love to play....especially when I am stuck for ideas.
So yesterday, I decided stop work for awhile and play one of my theatre-games, which I use in my creative-thinking and teambonding workshops, - but this time via the Facebook platform.
The Rule was simple:
1) Anyone can take part and contributes with a short phrase (between 4-7 words) and ends the phrase with a "..."; and then post it on this wall.
2) the next person will continue the sentence (in a new post) and start with "... <followed by a short phrase> ...";.
3) You may also end a phrase with a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark, so the next person who continues will need to start a new phrase with a capital letter.
Person 1: One day, there was ...
Person 2: ... a little boy who likes ...
Person 3 ... to eat ice-cream.
Person 4: He buys the ice-cream ...
Person 5: ... at Giant Supermarket ...
4) This will continue until...well..we'll see how it goes.
I compiled the phrases, did a few adjustments and minor editing, and presto!
Once upon a time, while Ronnie was in the toilet, a big fat lizard appeared and smiled at him while making soft chattering noises.
Suddenly, the light went off.
Ronnie looked around and saw another lizard. he lizard say, “Hi!”, when suddenly, there was a knock on the toilet door.
"Are you done yet??" Said the voice.
"Nope, I'm in the dark..."replied Ronnie."Halt ! Who goes there....?"
Bam! Scratch! Preeetttttt!
Strangely there was a blue ant glowing and it brightened the dark toilet. Then, came another lizard which stuck out a neon green tongue at Ronnie.
And Ronnie went, “Yucks! I thought I saw a hand in the mouth of… jamban baik!”
“Wait! Hang on! It's a crab!”
‘Hong kan liao!’ thought Ronnie.
Ronnie started to shiver and his heart was beating through his chest and he said, "Aaaaaaahhh, finally it's out!"
Suprisingly, he still shivered, so he struck a pose and said, “Isn’t it amazing how poses can relief stress?”
He continued, “OMGeeee! Look at my Nose! I wanted it to be like Brad Pitt but the doc made it to be like Hazriq Idrus!”
"Hoi! You there inside! How long already?! People also need to pangsai leh," said the voice.
"A little bit more!” said Ronnie.
Just like Mr Softie from 7-11, it was a soft, liquidity mixture - the final blast!
And Ronnie then smiled with relieve.
Thanks to my FB friends, it turned out awesome! I always believe in collaborative efforts because every person has his/ her own strengths.
So who says that too many cooks spoil the soup?
A collaborative and creative effort. You guys rock! Thanks to the following contributors:
