Exquisite Corpse, Part 6, from Mark

My last line is:

"If the Ralph hosting the party was an imposter, what had Lord Cadaver done with the real Ralph – and what could Claire, a mere cat, do to save him?"

I swear I didn't peek before writing my scene, but now that I have, I see that I used the same name for a character as Christy did with her sentence! How weird is that? Maybe those Surrealists were really onto something....

Hi Mark,
See what happens when we let the deep oceans of our unconscious minds flood together ;-)

OR perhaps you are Claire-voyant...

This is hilarious! I can't wait to read the stories behind the sentences.

Mark said...

I'm with Edie -- now that I've been allowed to peek at the other sentences, I want to read the whole story!!

And Christy, knowing what they say about great minds, I'm not surprised we are in sync!! :) My niece's middle name is Claire, and she really likes cats, which is how I came up with "my" Claire. How about you?

Christy said...

I hope my meaning will be "claire" when I post my story.

What a wonderful coincidence!
