    Okay, I will have to lay the ground rules out in the OP. So I can't immediately obey them at the outset.

    I want y-o-u to only post sentences with one syllable words.(Plurals are allowed.) Don't just list short, one-syllable words --put them in sentences. The sentences should be grammatically correct. I know it will be frustrating because you will not be able to use a longer form of a more ideal word. But that's how the game is played.

    Don't use contractions or words with hyphens.

    Make at least two paragraphs.

    This is my first time participating in a games thread. And what do I do? I start a thread of my own! Some of you may be thinking :" Is this really a game?" Well, make believe it is. ;-)

    I hope I don't have to add any more rules.

    And I don't have anything thought up or written down...yet -- to launch this thing. I might have three views in three days. I promise that I will contribute a post tomorrow to this thread. Does everybody understand? Okay then, ready, set, go!

    Rules are meant to be broke are they not? The folks here that break the rules day in and day out may have a hard time with this game.

    I found a set of spare car keys in my truck.

    Do you know who owns them?

    Rules are rules. You are on a game ban now. There is one way you can get back in. You have to wait for one of these folks to break the rules as you did. Okay?

    I think this will be a game where we are more tuned in to the posts of the rest and not of our own. It is too hard to check one's own work. It is far more of a cinch (and far more fun!) to catch the goofs of friends than our own.

    Do not be a mean Salt. This can be a fun game if you will play by the rules. Rules are good. When you start a thread do you play by your own rules? This may seem as if I am mean to you. I am not. I just want to see if I can do what I said in my first post. This can be hard, but it still can be done.

    Rules in a game may seem like they do not want those who play to have fun. But that is not true. It is a test to see if we can play with blocks in our way. There would be no fun if we had no blocks. It is like real life. Do you not think so? Hey, I like this. I have no thought as to what I will say next, I just keep up the march. No one has done what I have done in this post. Let us see if one can do it. Just try. You will like it.

    That is all for now. Play nice.

    It is up to you. I will not force you to play all day or not. Do you think I have that might? No, I am just your host. It is you who will choose to play. And it is you who will make the choice as for how long you will play. I want you to make a post that is the real deal. Go on now and do it.

    Is this some kind of game? Yes, it is is, and a nice one. Do you not think so? Please tell your friends of this. Rip has a fun game. All should play. To speak in short words makes us sound odd. Ah, but that is all part of the fun. It is not how we speak in real life. But can you try new things? I think you can, though it may feel strange. It is worth it to try.

    No more talk of rules. It is not hard to come up with short words.

    Just think like a man who does not know home land speech. You know? Like one from a far flung land. It is not hard to write like this. I could go on and on.

    I might quit soon, though. I have to go run some chores. Yet, I will say this--Did you know the sun is hot? Most peeps in city with deep snow, when they are cold, do not think of the sun as a hot ball of gas, though it shines a lot of bright light rays on them.

    Wow, it is true that one must take care not to type a word with more than one...what is the word? The word rhymes with "kill a bull". Never mind. Yes, I can see that it is a hard task to check your own work; not so hard to check a post not made by you.

    Well, I must run. Got tasks to do. Bye.

    You must have good use of your tongue when you type. That sounds weird. But so be it. I have to speak this way to get the thought to you. You were wrong in two spots.
