Lacking inspiration for a blog post, Randi provided me with a list of various words, which I will now construct into a story. Ready…GO.
William Farquar, the 12 year old son of the Duke of Chicago, was having a rough day. At breakfast, he had demanded his usual escargo with his usual fiery passion, but alas, the royal kitchens were fresh out of these slimy snails. Believing that these slippery morsels were necessary for optimal nutrition, William decided to search for them himself. He called for his servant, Randall, and together they set off for The Coast.
It was a nasty flight, as the pilot displayed his lack of finesse in the at the wheel. Nevertheless, William and Randall arrived at The Coast, flash light in hand and the search for snails began.
Now, what you must know about Randall is this: He is quite the flamboyant type of man. When the beam from William’s flash light fell on him, he got rather confused. Thinking that had been transported to perhaps a Bar of Some Sort, he began dancing and shaking and singing like a Vegas ShowGirl. Right there on the beach! William became so embarrassed of his servant (the innocent beach-goers were staring afterall!) that he quickly diverted the beam away. But the damage had been done. Everyone on the beach had seen Randall’s shocking performance-in fact, the growing crowd began to clap and beg for more! Randall, never one to pass up an opportunity to “shake it”, happily obliged. Meanwhile, William, out of embarrassment and hunger decided to renew his snail search.
This became a Parting of Ways. Randall was offered a record deal on the spot by a very prestigious label and gladly accepted. He would finally be moving to Texas, where he could dance and sing in a variety of famous shows-the lights, the crowds, the costumes! Oh, he could hardly wait to start his new life! Randall’s greatest triumph was the day he stepped into those leather chaps for the first time.
And what of William? William left the comfort of his father’s royal house to pioneer a new colony for people who believe in eating escargo for optimal nutrition. William and Randall see each other occasionally now and then, to rehash their tales over a lovely bowl of snails.
