The Seven Sentence Story Contest!!

I had so much fun with the exercise with my kids today that I don't want the fun to end, so, I'm opening up a contest.  I will send a signed copy of either of my short story collections, Strangers and Beggars, or The Last of the O-Forms and Other Stories, or my novel, Summer of the Apocalypse to the person who posts the best seven sentence story in the comments section of this post.

Follow the directions for the story as explained here.

You are welcome to enter as many stories as you would like.

The deadline is by midnight (MST) Sunday.  I'll announce the winner on Monday and put your choice of book in the mail.
