Providence

You write a line and then write the instructions for the next person to write the next line.

1)

Loud noises make my feet hurt

[Talk about toenails, hair, and??...]

Even the nerveless parts grow erect

[You are very tall]

I aspire to touch the flying part

[Eiffel Tower]

Even my hands hurt for so much of that height

[Aspiring to different dietary needs]

A vegetable air, up there

[Eat it]

Tastes like a tomato. Canít be, tomatoís a fruit they say

[Go to Boston]

But those university snobs donít even know their own two feet

[Finish with 1st person]
