Pay attention class, teacher says,(that's ME! lol) rapping her ruler on her desk..... I'm going to tell you a little story and I want you all to rewrite it, but keeping to the context of the original. This is an exercise in imagination and pure fun. No details to fill in, no misconceptions to make. There are no wrong answers.......... You will be marked on originality and entertainment level. Here we go: "Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl, 'Will you marry me?' The girl said, 'NO!' The guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and went fishing and hunting and played golf a lot and drank beer and scotch and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted." You have 40 minutes to complete your assignment.............

hi there, "teacher" spark! Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl, "Will you marry me?" The girl said, "YES." And the guy asked back, "Are you sure?" The girl said, "I'll think about it. Ask me again tomorrow." So the guy asks again the following day and the girl answers: "You don't drive, you smoke a lot, you never workout in the gym, you don't have a job and you don't know how to cook! The only thing you're good at is when we're.. well, never mind. NO, I'm not gonna marry you. But thanks for asking." How does that sound?

[i]Hi Sparks, Oh my God, you know what? I have type already and that was best for me! hahahah! Accidentally, I deleted it all,,,,idiot me! hahahha! ANyway, I am excited to hear your story, it's cool! I wonder what's your ending of this...You need to post an ending! hehehhe! I am not good in writing story but I will give a try! After those years spent and enjoying his time alone and enjoying doing things he loves to do, the guy realized, that he is still alone and he still needs someone to be with him and whom he spend his time with! He loves to imagine that after a long day, someone will meet him in the door hug and kiss him or someone yelling at him for being late! hahahahhaha! You make me imagine here....And the girl got married to another guy and she realized how she loves the guy whom she refused at first and she wished she said Yes to him before, if only she could turn back time! hahahahahha! What a destiny![/i]

Oh and cappy, the story is complete on it's own and doesn't really need the kind of ending you're talking about. I did this same exercise as you all have done. See my 're-write' of the story in the discussion, on page one under Comment #5....

All I can tell you jiang is that your mother and grandfather are old enough to work out their own problems. I'm sorry your grandfather is ill. Talk to your mother. Let her know how you feel and how much this is hurting you. Good Luck.

Hi Sparky, The guy was so very unhappy that he was turned down but later got over, then onday he found a lovely girl that adored him and fell in love with her, they got married, and bought a beautiful house with roses gorwing over the front door and they had three beautiful children called Faith Hope and Charity and they all lived happily together. The girl that turned him down lived to be an old maid. Love and hugs. Tamara xxxx

What???!!!! You are giving out homework assignments!!!! I thought I was the one who did that. Okay, I will knuckle down and do the homework. The girl who said "NO" also lived happily ever after. She went on to run her own company. The company only employed women. Together, the women went on the rule the earth and made lots of money. They enjoyed drinking, talking about the lazy men, playing pool, spitting and shopping. The women had their own motorcycle gang. They own and operated all of the fishing and hunting stores. They also owned every country club that the guys went to after playing golf. Anything the men wanted, they had to get from the women. The End.

Well, I tried to get it done on time, but that stupid dog. I have a new monitor now, so here goes. Once upon a time there was a girl and a boy. They had been sleeping together for quite some time. The boy enjoyed that very much and so he asked the girl to marry him. She thought for a minute and said, "No way!" Now instead of spending her entertainment money on Extenze, motorcycle insurance, and hunting and fishing supplies just to get a half-a$$ed piece of a$$, she is spending it on batteries to stay satisfied while she builds up her wardrobe (and boobs) to catch that rich guy the just moved into her building. When she gets him, he will buy his own Extenze plus keep her well enough to allow for her to get her piece wherever, whenever, and with whomever she wishes. It is an all around happy ending.

Silly women Tell me...why is it always okay for the man to have to touch the toilet seat but it's not okay for the woman? Besides, don't y'all ever look before you sit down?

It's not a question of who touches it, it's a question of politeness on the part of the man for women as they sit when they tinkle. And women only never look when they're drunk! ROFL

The girl also lived happily ever after, dating whom she pleased, IF she pleased, kept her house neat IF she wanted to, visited friends, museums, opera, ballet if and when she pleased, and never once fell in the commode because the seat had been left up.

This guy asked a girl, "will you marry me"? Her answer as she looked at him in utter surprise was, "aboslutely not!". With this answer he was reall caught off guard thing the girl loved him as much as he loved her. He walked away in competely confusion. He later found his way and knew what to do. He went to school got a degree that would give him a good life. He was living it up. He didn't get married as all girls reminded him of her and none of them could just make the grade when he compared them to her. He had a wonderful huge home, housekeeper, butler, and all he would ever need. When he wanted someone to make love to he had girls plenty of them. He partied with them kept them around just for the night or as long as he wants then they were gone. The girl he asked to marry him and she said no found a guy that she did marry. He became a drunk, slapped her around when he wanted to, she cried herself to sleep many nights. She started drinking herself into oblviion just to deal with her life. One day her husband up and leaves her for another. She is alone, abandoned. SHe asked her husband would he come back? To which he replied no never in a million years. One day years later she ran into the first guy that asked her to marry him. She had broken his heart but he picked himself us. Although he never forgot about her and compared every woman to her. She asked him if he wanted to get together? His reply to her was, NO ABSOLUTELY NOT, I've been with many women and compared them to you. Not being satisfied. I figured since I compared them to you and was never satisfied then I would not ever be satisfied with you either." It was her turn to walk away and be confused and lonely. He one the other hand was doing all he wanted when he wanted and after that day when confornting her he finally found a good lady and they got married.

I didn't read the other responses before giving mine. I never do as then I would loose my train of thought and it would lean towards theirs somewhat. Thanks a lot teach, and you got through the muddle that I see I gave you. Mis-spelled words and words I didn't mean to be there. That's what happens when you feel badly and don't feel like doing anything to begin with. Ahhh such is life. I hope to be back up and running on all nerves in my brain soon.

After years of considering it, he finally made his move. A nice candle lit dinner at her favorite place, followed by a concert she could not of afforded tickets for herself. He took her back to his loft, after some nice small talk he got the courage to get on one knee and pulled out the ring he had spent so much on. She was worth it though. In a moment, it was all over. She had left. No thank you even for the wonderful night. "Your my customer!" She proclaimed. "I have a husband that I love as much as I love to dance." She didn't even look at him as she rushed out the door. Now speeding down the highway, he couldn't imagine a life without her. He had obsessed over her for weeks. All his thoughts were over her. The way she looked at him while she was dancing, her eyes locked on his when she crawled over to him on stage, the smile she gave him when he slipped her reward to her. The things that happened between the two of them in his thoughs, the way she... What was that? He turned around and pulled into the lot. There she sat. The most beautiful thing he ever had seen. How could somoene of left her here all alone? He slid his hand over the body, eventually stopping his hand over her leather seat. It was the most satisfying thing he had ever touched. He climbed on her and sat there waiting. Eventually someone came and parked by a building close by. He walked up to meet them. "She looks very lovely. I would love to give her a home." The man looked at him with astonishment. "She means a lot to me, and it has only been me who has broke her in. She is not for sale." He paused for a moment, staring at the man. "Nothing is out of my price range, everyone has a price." Now, starting back to home he felt he found his place in life. They would have many travels together, many adventures. She soothed him. He loved how she never complained when he wanted to go hunting. It was wonderful that she didn't mind when he got on her after drinking some scotch, even when he passed out on her after some play. She never asked to understand him but went with anything he suggested. He even let a few of his friends borrow her for a evening or two. His new obsession, his life, this beautiful machine. He never needed another motorcycle.

Once upon a time, a man asked a girl to marry him. She said "NO!" He went on to live happily ever after. She went on to start her own company and create work for other people. She was creative every day, adding to her company's products. She was able to afford many perks, especially cosmetics and a sleek Porsche. This made her so desirable to many men, who wanted beauty as well as a hot rod, that she had her choice of men. She lived happily ever after, dating who she wanted when she wanted.
