Instead of writing my part of the blog today, I decided to publish a few of our story cubes stories. We met a nice french lady, who started an overland trip with her husband 6 months ago. They started driving their Fiat from Halifax, Nova Scotia 6 months ago. She let us play with her story cube set. There are 9 cubes with pictures on each side. You roll the cubes and create an on the spot story based on how they land. The story is told right away without time to think it over.
Marco told some great stories but didn’t want to be published. My mom typed them up as we told them. I’ve decided to publish a few of mine and my dad’s stories. I hope you like them.

Once there was an alien, and he stared up at the moon and then he saw a flower, lifting a question of arrows. He scanned his credit card to a really freaky kid with a flashlight.

Once upon a time I lived in a castle far far away. I was sitting down in a poker room and then I realized I was just in a casino that looked like a castle. I looked up at the clock and it said 4 o clock. I thought I’d only been there for 2 hours but saw a shooting star and realized I’d been there 14 hours. I pulled an apple out of my pocket because I was hungry and I had missed lunch. I looked up at the sky and saw the moon shining down over the silhouette of the castle and I felt like I was in Europe. I went to my car door but I forgot my key and had to go back inside to pay the man in weights and balances. I gave him all of my winnings and he came out not with a jimmy stick but with a magnet and unlocked my car door by breaking the window.

Once I was reading a book about a fish in a rainbow. Then I realized it sadly had a cane. The die of the cane was a question to the foot about the happiness of talking.
