Readers Writing the Post

I need a blog break, so time for you to get busy.  We'll write a story one comment at a time.  I asked Pigtails to kick it off, here she goes:
once apon a time there was a fearce dragon. he did not like people. and he had a kingdom ,with people he liked.when ever he saw someone that was not from there, he breathed ice on them. when they where meltid they found there self in his stomek.      
-pigtails and not beard

One day a small little gnome leaning on a cane was walking along the highway when he met a peddler who warned the gnome about the Fierce Dragon who lived in the kingdom over the hill. The gnome was a very wise old gnome and came up with a plan to tame the dragon. His idea was stand outside the kingdom and tell the beginning of a fantastical tale to all the people who entered the kingdom. He told each of them that he would only tell the end of the story if the fierce dragon invited him into the kingdom and promised not to breathe ice on the gnome.

So all the people who wanted to hear the end of the story approached the dragon to ask the dragon to invite the gnome into the kingdom. But before they had a chance to ask, the dragon breathed ice on them and ate them.  So the gnome had to come up with another plan. He set off to find a wizard powerful enough to make him a coat of fire that would melt the dragon's ice before it could freeze. The dragon could only eat frozen people, and if the gnome didn't freeze, the dragon couldn't eat him.  But the gnome didn't know where to find such a wizard.

He began as any gnome would - on foot, through the woods, at a brisk pace. Before too long, he grew tired. And hungry. He needed a meal. Most of all he wanted a grilled cheese sandwich with two oreo cookies on the side. What to do?

The hungry old gnome strummed his lute to summon Nancy, the Shetland pony. The trusty steed trotted up, her saddle packs laden with warm grilled cheese sandwiches, Oreo cookies and a quart of milk. And on Nancy's back was a wizard powerful enough to craft a coat of fire!

He was no ordinary wizard. In a brown leather satchel, he carried marbles, a fistful of daisies, and a 2-day supply of fortified pony food for Nancy. He also sneezed a lot, always in three's. The old gnome was intrigued. Who WAS this wizard and could he really craft that coat of fire?

The end.

    Just follow my( soon to be ex )husbands philosophy, simply say, "the end" at that point. If your listener(s) are young enough they wont even know the difference! :P
