The Post In Which I Ask You A Favor....

So, this guy brought my attention to a writing exercise/challenge by this guy , which I am thinking I might give a whirl.

  This also reminded me of a word game that a lovely lady named Cindra was running a few years back, in which she would provide people with 18 words, and you had to write a story incorporating those 18 words.I thought it was a lot of fun, and I have actually been reposting a couple of the things I wrote over the last coupla weeks.

  I am not going to try and revive the contest, as I am far too lazy, but I did like the inspiration and the challenge of the 18 words, so here is the FAVOR I ASK of you, dear reader: Send me 18 words(either in the comments or e-mail me) and I will try and write something up using those words.

  What do you say ? Can you help me out ?

Which one are you going to do first? The old man and apple study or the eighteen word challenge?

(That was 18 words up there, by the way. Well, 19...but I used "the" twice. So 18!)
