Exile #2, inspired by The Moth and our camping trip, suggested an evening of stories around the camp-fire. So tonight, that's just what we did. It was a small group but we had a great time telling stories loosely based around the topic of "Summer".
The kids joined in - the girls managing to recount some stories rather well. E5N1's idea of a story was...well, like this:
Once upon a time there was a monster.
All the children came to the monster.
He ate them all up.
In a sequel, the monster had a stomach-ache and then was eaten by a bigger monster so it was something of a cautionary tale all around.
