So I have this subscription, as I have mentioned, to the San Antonio Freecycle mailing list. But all that is ever offered on it is junk, so I don't get a lot of use out of it. (I mean, honestly. Expired coupons? What on Earth is one meant to do with that?)

However, I have developed, in my apparently copious free time, little narratives around the people who post on it regularly. I mean, what vast human tragedy is contained in these three subsequent postings by "kiddosontheway"?

OFFER: boy's clothing and shoes
OFFER: variety of toys (suitable for 8-year-old boy)
WANTED: knitting supplies and books

Finny, Xtreme and Brooke were playing hide and (VERB). Xtreme, who has more (FOOD) than he can handle, hid in the (NOUN). Finn and Brooke looked for him under the (NOUN) and in the (NOUN).

"(EXCLAMATION)!" They heard Xtreme yell. "This is so (ADJECTIVE)!" Finn and Brooke (PAST TENSE VERB) to find Xtreme -- only to find him (PAST TENSE VERB) with a (TOY).

"Xtreme, you sure are (ADJECTIVE)", laughed Finn and Brooke.


My Friday afternoon challenge: make this funny without implying that Finn, Brooke and Xtreme are some kind of deranged sodomists.
