What's Yarn, you say?  It was an old MPlayer game where someone would start a story with a single sentence and everyone added to it.  It was done by a vote system and a timer.  Well, we have to dispense with the vote system and instead just ad-lib it.  We had a similar post before but it died, and I thought I'd start a new yarn.  Here's the rules:

1) I type one sentence to begin the yarn.
2) The next poster continues the yarn with exactly one sentence.  No more, no less.  Posts with multiple-sentences will get pruned (and any posts adding to them will have to be pruned for continuity's sake).
3) The sentence should connect to the previous sentence or story in some way if possible.  There should be some continuity, but you CAN change the direction abruptly.  In fact it's encouraged.
4)  Nothing vulgar, please.  You all know what is/is not offensive/permissible here so I shouldn't have to explain this one.
5)  Be reasonable.  A paragraph-long run-on sentence does not qualify, ok?
6)  You only get one post before it's someone else's turn.  Once someone else posts you are free to post again.  NO DOUBLE POSTING!

Ok that's it, so here goes!


It is pitch black.  You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

You should have stuck with name-brand batteries.

Undaunted, you walk over to the wall and flip on the light, and in the process remember that your name is "Steve".

Your memory is fuzzy and your chest still hurts where it was pierced, but now, with the light turned up, it's all coming back.

"Steve?" a voice asked behind you. "Can you get me a bloody mary with raisins please, I'm a leprechaun!"

The Leprechaun was jumping around Steve, trying to steal his battery.

"It's flat", you protest, but the leprechaun continues undaunted.

Tired of this incessant taunting, you pump two rounds of buckshot into the leprechaun and shout, "Whose Lucky Charms are they NOW, bitch!"

However, the Leprechaun did not stop: He kept swirling and swirling until he managed to steal the battery from Steve.

Realizing the battery was a C battery instead of a D battery, the leprechaun handed Steve the battery back and promptly died from a massive chest wound.

Remembering how good dead leprechaun tastes you find a nearby kitchen to bake the annoying bastard.

Remember also your nationality and, accordingly, your utter lack of talent for appreciable cuisine, you consider finding a 'volunteer' food taster..

You go out to find Mikey, but all roads are closed because of an barbarian and skelleton invasion.

Dream or no dream, watching barbarians and skeletons fighting is worthy of microwave popcorn so you go to your pantry to get some.

However, all you can find is a bag of salty tortillas and you don't even have any dips.

the tortillas are slightly old and soggy, and no dip on earth would be enough to salvage them
