[Game] Creating sentences

Postby france-eesti » 2018-02-28, 12:12

Hi there!
Just delete this subject if you think this is a bad idea - I thought we could start this game in English too!
Create a sentence including a word the previous user put in bold.

I'll write the 1st sentence then :silly:

As unlikely as it seemed, Nicolas got the best grade in the whole school and could enter the University he had dreamt about.

So next person write a sentence including "school" and sets another word in bold, that the next person will have to use, and so on...

Most students walk or use bicycles or public transportation to go to school.

I had to brake in order to avoid all the bicycles that were crossing in front of me.

Hope smouldering to the point of extinction sprang to life and burned like a fire in a cane-brake.

Jaanipãev bonfire just went on and when it smoldered, suddenly everybody started to jump and then in the big mayhem it created, Priit's second daughter's hand got seriously burnt.

Mind you, all she was able to do afterwards was to sit on a chair and think about how things could have been.

Afterwards I did start noticing that you had been staying there, when I could only stare at the square view out of the hospital window.

A year has passed, and the resources we've collected are pretty abundant in terms of number.

It is clear that an abundant number of citizens is a dire necessity to have this survey completed and significant.

The dire wolf, which is now extinct, is supposedly the largest canine to have ever lived.

The largest part of the population who answered the survey just couldn't pick up the courage to denounce the unfairness of the situation.

Dealing with unfairness is stressful because human beings usually respond as if it were a threat.

They couldn't go on vacation because the airport was closed due to a bomb threat.

What is a vacation? Why do people need a vacation? Is it possible to live without vacations? For those rich who need not work for money any more, what does a vacation mean? And, why do some people get used to make themselves exhausted during their vacations? What is a vacation for?

After writing this, Sam closed his diary, undressed, and crawled into his bunk. He lay there with his eyes closed, wondering what a vacation is, and reminding himself to discuss it with his father the next morning. In a few minutes he fell into asleep.

I want to be rich and I want lots of money, I don't care about clever, I don't care about funny.
