84. What's your Story?

Have you ever had the experience of people boring you to death, when in the pretext of story telling they just nag on and on forever. So whats the best way to escape from the clutches of these goofy boredoms? Though I'm adpet (or maybe I'm not) at story telling myself here are some ways I can think of to escape in these situations:

1. The moment someone starts a story, act sneezing over and over again. Tell them its not a good omen to speak now!
2. Start Laughing hysterically even before they start talking and tell "that was hilarious man! I cant take any more"
3. Invite them for a lunch saying "My wife is out of town and I cooked this new special dish for you" forget abt talking you neighbour will be miles away.
4. Start digging your nose (like this one below), and mention you got a flu thats not very contagious!

5. Make some gargling noises like farting with your mouth, and then ask your neighbour "Hey! was that you" or tell him your tummy is really upset


6. Pretend as if you had selective deafness (like selective amnesia) and keep asking a frikking thousand times "Cant hear you! Can you say that again".
7. Give your neigbhour a cold blank twsited stare and tell him "Is something wrong in your face?"

Ok enuf of intended funs, here is what happenned as a part of monthly team activity at my office last month. We were randomly given a group of 10 words and a time limit 3 minutes to come up with a story and stage enacting. Here are the 10 words that I got.
1. Mercury 2.Java 3.Alien 4.Projector 5. Navarathiri 6.Gangster 7.Euphoria 8.Pantene 9.Semiconductor 10. Video Camera
The only rule for this game was that all 10 words needs to be used in the enacting. Here is the modified version of the story that I did with my group.
"A Gangster of Aliens in the form of humans join our company as trainees. They were inducted to Java training class for a months period, after which they were posted onto a project. The project was a part of the "New Technology" division dealing with the best in science and aviation. The project lead, the ever wistful cheerful girl she was welcomed this Gangster of 3 folks heartily and talked passionately about the dual life of of both fun and work. As a mark of spirit, she invited these folks to her home for the Navarthiri puja a festival of fun and color where different statues of gods and godesses, toys are arranged in a 9 step staircase. The 3 new joinees went to her home and helped her in arranging the toys. As apart of these arragements she found a newly wrapped doll, which was not a part of her collection. Upon inspecting these she found it be the semiconductor device that her project had recently developed for Time travel. Suspicious that this has been stolen by these new folks, she records this in a Video Camera and immediately contacts the CIA. She uses a Projector to project the video she had taken to the members of CIA, who after some investigation find that the 3 new joinees were indeed Aliens from the planet Mercury. The CIA immediatly attack and kill the Aliens and the planet is saved. Needless to say, the lead was in a state of euphoria as she was able to save the planet."
So lets see how good you guys are "whats your story" - here are some words for you, do write your story in comments-
1. Myth 2.Hollywood 3. Island 4.TN 07 1435 5.Hanuman 6.Alaska 7.Grapevine 8.Mantle 9.Chant
10. Bartender
