Showdown at the Mystery Hotel

Me 1: I've been challenged to write no more than 300 words inspired by this photo. What to do?
Me 2: Blood and gore and guts!
Me 1: But I just ate. How about something sweet and coming-of-agey?
Me 2: Meh.
Me 1: What about an animal tale? Everyone loves animal stories!
Me 2: You are full of shit, you know that?

Me 1: What the hell's your problem?
Me 2: SHH! I'm thinking...hey, how about a coming-of-age tale with animals AND they all die a painful gory death in the end?
Me 1: Umm...

Me 1: What face?

Me 2: Well I would GET to that if you would stop friggin interrupting me!
Me 1: Ok. Fine. Whatever. If you're so smart, you do all the work!
Me 2: Fine! My idea is better than your stupid-ass idea about the animals anyways!
Me 1: But you have a TIGER! That's an animal!

OK Franny, take a deep, cleansing breath, and walk to the sink (Yes, both of you). Pour a glass of water, drink it slowly. Now walk carefully to the couch and lie down. Stay there until the nice men come with the van.

Great post!
