Instruction: This is a simple game: everyone write some sentences (or 1 paragraph) based on the previous sentences so that the whole story makes sense.
Once upon a time, I was in a cafeteria drinking coffee and thinking about life, the universe and everything … After a few minutes, I got bored and started looking around. I noticed a nice lady sitting in a table next to me. She was reading a book and sometimes smiling on her own.
I came to her table and asked her which book she was reading.
-Is it a joke book? I asked,
-‘Yes’, she said, ‘it is a joke book about scientists’, she continued. I told her that I was working with some mathematicians and there were a lot of funny stories about them. After that I sat down at her table and we began to talk.
-‘Oh, so you must be smart!’, her eyes were blinking. ‘I am very bad in calculus …!’
I felt flattered …
Suddenly, another guy showed up at the table. He was about 6 feet tall. He was the biggest man that I had ever seen. He went slowly to the table and sat down. I thougth, “he must be her boyfriend”, and my chance would have disappeared. He exclaimed: “Thuy Trang!”. It must be her name, a beautiful name. She paused, her eyesbrow frown, looked perplexed and was wondering how this man knew her name.
-‘We went to the same highschool, don’t you remember me?’ – he said.
-‘Ah, now I remember’ – she exclaimed, sounded like a mum who just recognized her long lost son :-) . ‘What are you doing now ?’
-‘I am studying for a law degree here.’
I felt relieved and redundant…
-‘I know many funny jokes about lawyers’, I said.
-‘Sorry, have we met before ? My name is Robert. Nice to meet you’, the tall man said.
