Here’s a fun little story written in a round robin group blog in my creative writing class. The first line was provided and then we all started a story which was then added to by all the members of our group and finished by the person who started it. This was mine. The first and last paragraph are mine. I thought it was a fun little exercise.
It’s hard to know what a computer will do when you plug it in during a thunderstorm, but I never expected …
it to get up and walk away. Apparently the extra voltage was all it needed to attain a level of animation that had never been seen before in a computer to my knowledge.
I followed it out the door into the rain. The clack clack of the speakers turned feet was disconcerting to say the least. I needed to know where a computer might go. What business it might have. We made our way the Best Buy down, around the corner from my house.
As we neared the store, I heard the sound of music getting louder and louder. My computer sauntered through the door.
“Hey, Mac, you’re late!” a voice called from the back of the room. I peered in the window trying to see.
“Gimme a break, HP. You know the storm always hits your side of town first.”
“Whatever. DJ got the joint jumpin toNIGHT!” said HP.
I caught a glimpse of another computer boogieing his way toward my mac. What was this? Did they have dance parties every time there was a thunderstorm?
