The Story Virus

Splotchy has started a viral story and he's tagged me as one of the people to continue it!

If you are one of the carriers of this story virus (i.e. you have been tagged and choose to contribute to it), you will have one responsibility, in addition to contributing your own piece of the story: you will have to tag at least one person that continues your story thread. So, say you tag five people. If four people decide to not participate, it's okay, as long as the fifth one does. And if all five participate, well that's five interesting threads the story spins off into.

So, here goes:

I woke up hungry. I pulled my bedroom curtain to the side and looked out on a hazy morning. I dragged myself into the kitchen, in search of something to eat. I reached for a jar of applesauce sitting next to the sink, and found it very cold to the touch. I opened the jar and realized it was frozen. (Splotchy)

My first idea was to put the applesauce in the microwave. Hey, I was still tired. Could I scoop some out and put whipped cream on it? No, too solid. Why was it so damn cold in here? I walked over to the thermostat and saw that the heat hadn't clicked on all night and the temperature had dropped substantially overnight. Now, tired and hungry, I opened the access panel on the heater. There's the problem: why was someone cooking a duck in here? (SamuraiFrog)

And to tag five others to continue the story. Since the blog circles I travel in seem to be narrowing and narrowing, this was the hardest part:
P to the J
J to the D
M to the C
Some Guy
Little Sherrita

UPDATE 10:35 A.M.: Splotchy has rewarded me with a doodle for my participation. At my suggestion: "Mickey Mouse cruising a high school to pick up chicks." It's so sleazy, I love it!

Thanks for continuing this, man. Please stop my blog some time to request your free participatory doodle.

Hey I did my story right away last night (she whined like a damn baby) where's my doodle?

(good twist with the story and great idea with the doodle.)
