Let's try build a coherent story. However, each commenter is only allowed 3 words or to end the sentence.

So the rules are simple, you have to try build as coherent (and hopefully fun/interesting) a story as possible.

However, in each comment you are only allow to either add up to a max of three words or declare the end of the sentence.

You may only add to the story again if there is at least one comment after your last addition. (In other words, no commenting on your own comment. )

Edit Thought I'd leave some starting ideas.

Clarifying rules Per comment, you have two abilities to choose from

Either,

You add UP TO THREE words (any punctuation other than full stop is welcome)

OR

You can DECLARE THE SENTENCE ENDED, after which the next comment must begin the next sentence.
(Could also be useful to add the story up to that point in that post as well to help people know what's happening in the story.)

Sorry, if it wasn't clear, hope it make more sense now :)
