    A llama saved my life.
    A story of bravery, romance, betrayal, heartbreak, and survival.

    by Chad Sexington​

    It was a dark and stormy night. *waves hands around mysteriously* The wind was howling and the thunder was cracking. Something was in the air and I should have seen it coming. Why, OH WHY didn’t I see it coming. So there I was having dinner with my wife, Mrs. Sexington. The table was set and the food smelled delicious. Something outside was scratching the window. –But wait! Doesn’t she know that I can’t eat dinner without throwing up if I didn’t have my lucky longsword with me? I ask her to get it from the bedroom for me and she gladly agrees. (She’s so good to me. I don’t deserve her.) I’m alone now and the scratching is getting louder. She returns and we’re ready to eat. –But wait! How am I supposed to eat without my favorite kilt? She gladly goes to the bedroom a second time and again, the scratches keep getting louder. She returns with a bag in her hand and a look of confusion on her face. Again, the scratches get even louder. What could it be? Was it a monster? Werewolf? Pk’s with fabulous neon clothes? The look of confusion now turns into disgust. From confusion to disgust and now anger, she finally speaks, “Is this… WOMAN’S UNDERPANTS!?!?” I jump out of my seat and fling open the front door. I hop onto the noisy llama and ride off into the night. And THAT was the day a llama saved my life.

    I will be happy to as soon as I get the video of the event! It was completely random and I didn't have it written down anywhere so I will have to watch the video my guildie made to remember the story!

    Should have it very soon :)

    Actually, I thought that was pretty good for the time limit and what he had to work with :)

    Certainly got a giggle

    Did you tell a story at the event?

    Highly unlikely judging by this comment.

    Here are 2 items, you have 30 seconds to think of a story to fit within a 3 minute time limit.

    Not even close to as easy as it sounds, especially if you actually come up with the story on the spot. Sure, someone could write a story before hand and make the items pointless so the story would make sense, but that wasn't the idea for the event.
