Here's to Tracy, the Eye, she's back
Wants to know what we did
On our forced Gather vacation
Tried posting while Gather in oblivion hid
Once in awhile, the wheel would slow down
And I'd think okay, it's going to stop
Got an error message most every time
I'd yell oh no, not another flop
Finally Gather stopped its games
Took forever, what a hullabaloo
Put up a few posts just for fun
Noticed others were doing it too
Just kept trying day and night
And others followed suit
Now there is a dedicated group
With stories gory and cute
SO HOW ABOUT A PROMPT?
How I Spent My Gather Vacation, in 100 or fewer words, using the word "hullaballoo" at least once. (You can even write about how *I* spent my summer vacation; William Dotani already did and apparently it involved armadillo and bacon.)
Your story may be serious or lighthearted or as silly as you like so long as it is 100 or fewerwords.
Post your stories to Genre Shorties.
