  1. Ooh fun! Let’s have a go:

    1. Mildred Crane leaned over the fence and beckoned with one crooked finger. Little Jimmt began to tremble. “Come on,” cackled Crane, “I won’t eat you!”

    2. The line of ants moved quickly, though sadly the anteater was faster.

    3. The wise man smiled.

    4. “Respect is all I ask for,” said the naked man, stark in a pool of light under the orange streetlamp.

    “Well,” said the Policeman, “you’re not really going about it the right way.”

    5. The warrior clasped his sword in both hands and prayed to the gods of war that no one would see him for the 15 year old boy he was, but for the mighty warrior he was to become.

    6. Sunshine warmed the air, but Tim wrapped his fur lined coat tighter around his body. His toes were already numb and he was so very cold. The poison was sure to reach his heart before his father reached a town.

    7. Blood splattered on the pathway. Linda looked up from her banana lounge in disgust. Kevin, seriously, this thing is charcoal on the outside and raw in the middle. You’re the only man I know that can’t BBQ.

    8. Aunt Maud was old, but not as old as the corpse of Uncle Vern in the downstairs freezer.

    9. “Fire!” The men turned and raised their rifles to their shoulders. The woman kept her head high and stared down the barrels as thunder and fire erupted.

    10. Death is not the end, it’s more like an interval. Only without ice cream.

    Heh. I might take this over to my blog if you don’t mind.

  2. 1. Mildred Crane leaned over the fence and beckoned to the cows, my signal that all was safe for me to enter her home.

    2. The line of ants moved quickly towards my mouth, so stuffed with sugarcane I couldn’t shut it.

    3. The wise man is one who holds his tongue.

    4. “Respect is all I ask for,” said the naked mole rat, a shiny tear ran down his cheek.

    5. The warrior clasped his sword in both hands and placed it beside his enemy’s feet, “I have come in Avrille’s stead.”

    6. Sunshine warmed the air, but Tim found himself laying down in the tanning bed anyway.

    7. Blood splattered on the pathway, just as Gracie expected, “You’re right on time.”

    8. Aunt Maud was old and was squirrel bait, in other words…nuts.

    9. “Fire!” The men turned and used their last incantation to quell the blue flames.They were now as defenseless as any first year.

    10. Death is not the end, no…for we were all made to be immortal.
