Storytime... help build our story!!

How to play: We'll begin the story. The next player will add five words. If a sentence ends use punctuation and continue until you have entered five words. That's it! At the end we will post the entire "story" for an often silly, jumbled result!

Example:
We post: One dark and stormy night...
Player 1 adds: the lights went out. I
Player 2 adds: went for ice cream. No
Player 3 adds: sense in letting it melt.

Please read complete rules below before posting. The deadline for this event is extended until Saturday, September 10th @ 8:00 a.m. Eastern.

After giving birth to their multiple children, two sisters-in-law were ready to feel like themselves again and put back on their normal size, button-up pants. But alas, those last few pounds around the middle were not quite letting this happen. Not to be defeated, they followed in the footsteps of generations of women before them and began using the handed-down tradition of looping rubber bands through the button holes of their pants. As actress Amy Adams calls it “the famous rubber band trick.” This works fine, but it has some major glitches: rubber bands break; have limited flexibility and can be uncomfortable; and, coming in various shades of brownish-yellow and pale red, elastics are just not attractive. The two sisters questioned: Why can’t we invent something that works and looks better? And so began the birth of LOOPSIE.

Loopsies are patented waistband extenders that allow you to wear your pants that are a bit too tight to button-up. Each package contains 4 Loopsies in 4 different sizes to meet the needs of various button types and various stages of weight loss or gain. Experiment and see which one works best for your jeans, khakis, or skirt buttons. Loopsies work like nothing else and are the most affordable extender available! Ten (10) winners will be selected - each to receive one (1) package of "oopsie Loopsies" of their own!
