Or, cross the bridge to read.

Ooooh! Me likes this story!

I like when the guy was dancing and tripped. I am kind of mean, I guess.
The riddle was riddly.

Have a nice weekend everyone!!
:-)

That mother-in-law has delusions of grandeur. Loved the old man's liturgical ballet. Can't figure out what Dorgborg is doing, but I like her. So many great lines again, but today's favorite: the clean and perfumed cheeks of bureaucrats reminded me of the late, great Mitt Romney. There won't be the likes of him for some time. Like, uh, approx. four years. xoxo

Good storying, Doug.

I suppose the guards would have been remiss had they allowed the troll to eat the king's future MIL, but I am wondering if the king would have really been all that upset.

Doug said...

Thanks, JD. See you tomorrow for Church!

Mireille, Dorborg was the old man tricking the Troll. I editted a little to clarify that,

Quilly, I bet he'd exile them somewhere with a beach and nice weather.

Haha, Quilly:)
Great story! I can't help but think of The Holy Grail, of course (did you want my first name, or last name?) And both of your pictures today are really scary! The one below is beautiful, but that bridge looks like a real stomach-turner.

You seem to have a passion for odd looking characters in your stories.

This is one of my favorite recordings...I just love your troll's and old man's voice.
I made several of today's birthday guests listen to your brilliance. I was busy beaming with pride of knowing such talent.


superb!

I need to borrow that smart old blind guy for my next Notory renewal test... what's his address?

BTW - that is the most cool picture of a troll I've ever seen.

Enchanting, and so like home these days is Rome with murder and folly both sanctioned and all.

Love the troll, looks like my cousin.

TLP said...

You're in good voice. Excellent.

I like the idea of a Troll having a dress code. That should be a law.

Lily Strange said...

Clean and perfumed cheeks are always the best kind. But I have the feeling that the troll's cheeks were neither.

Doug said...

Actonbell, according to Google, it's called "The Liberator's Bridge" which I find hysterical.

Thank you Minka, I'm quite proud that my vocal range runs the full gamut from deformed old man to troll.

Terry, you're a notary? The most admirable public servant of all, I think. I thought that picture was great, too. You and Mo'a came immediately to mind. I mean, because of your visual style.

Cooper, are we related?

TLP, I agree. Just because you live under a bridge and eat human flesh doesn't mean there aren't standards.

Lily, depends what you're willing to call perfume, I suppose.
