GLORY!blog Choose Your Own Adventure

1


You're sitting at your computer reading the gloryblog when you notice a little man jumping around in the corner of the screen. At first you think it's some annoying assistant from another program, or maybe a web advertisement, but then you hear him say your name:

"Hey, INSERT YOUR NAME HERE, help me!" he says with a tinny voice.

You can't believe your eyes or ears! What will you do?

* IF YOU ASK THEM MAN WHAT HE WANTS, SCROLL DOWN TO #2.
* IF YOU BECOME TOO SCARED AND TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER, SCROLL DOWN TO #3.

"What do you need help with?" you ask the little man.

"I thought you'd never ask," he says, and jumps from your screen onto your desk. Then he hands you a tiny scroll.

"Read this!" he says. "It will tell you all you need to know."

"But it's too tiny," you say, the tiny scroll hanging on the edge of your pinky.

"Figure it out... or else!" the man says, and vanishes in a puff.

* IF YOU CRUSH THE SCROLL WITH YOUR FINGERS AND FORGET THE WHOLE THING HAPPENED, SCROLL DOWN TO #4
* IF YOU SEARCH THE AREA FOR SOMETHING TO HELP YOU SEE THE SCROLL, SCROLL DOWN TO #5

You turn off your computer and breathe a sigh of relief. Maybe I shouldn't have had that drink at lunch today, you think. But then you feel a tiny jab in your back, like from a pin. You flip your head around and the little man is on your shoulder.

"Hope you have your affairs in order," he says. "For in two minutes the poison will take effect and you will die!"

ENJOY YOUR REMAINING TIME ON EARTH. THE END.

"Enough of this crap!" you say aloud, and make short work of the little scroll. Still, you can't help but wonder what it said and wonder if it will bother you all of your days. But there's good news! You won't have any more days, for the scroll contained a poison which has entered your bloodstream and will kill you in two minutes.

ENJOY YOUR REMAINING TIME ON EARTH. THE END.

Careful not to damage the scroll, you begin rummaging around in your junk drawer. In it, you see a magnifying glass, a pair of tweezers, a bit of rope, some kitchen magnets, 60 watt light bulbs, a box of matches, and a button from Rock City.

But you will have plenty of time to figure out what to do with these things, because you will have to wait for the next GLORY!blog Choose Your Own Adventure in order to continue!

UNTIL NEXT TIME. FAREWELL FOR NOW, BRAVE TRAVELLER!
