FILL-IN-THE-BLANK STORIES

For more fun, here is some of the fill-in-the-blank stories Maeve and I created. If you're wondering what fill-in-the-blank stories are, they work exactly the same as MadLibs. One player prompts other players for a list of words to substitute for blanks in a story and then reads the result aloud. They can be hilarious. Even when they're not hilarious, they're usually pretty funny.
