I have no idea what you are talking about, (IDEALLY I would), but I assume you won't mention LYMPHOMA

(Here is how the game is played. You take the last letter, or letters, of the capitalized word and start a new word with those letters[capitalized] and in some way, or another, use that new word to add to the ongoing narrative.)

"LYMPHOMA!", shouted Heinrich. "No", replied Ms Macdonald, "Lee Fowler, the Welsh footballer. She patted the hood on the goshawk's head. "This yellow hood with black stripes is an HOMAGE to the colours that Lee wore when he played for Fleetwood Town!"

They didn't think their day was all that great, but they paid HOMAGE to what they thought was as they looked at the MAGENTA landscape

(I'm not horribly good at this)

(It takes time)

The MAGENTA landscape slipped behind them and faded as the sun began to set. They continued to drive to the Plains of Salisbury for a show down with those pesky squirrels. Helen popped the top off a bottle of GENTAMICIN and popped a capsule in her mouth. Henrich gave Helen a quizzical look. "Nasty urinary tract infection," replied Helen. Henrich just shrugged and drove on.

The temperature began to drop as dark set in. Helen became quieter and quieter, then began to shake slightly. 'Cold?' asked Heinrich, solicitously. He tried to turn the heating on, but it didn't work. Helen merely whimpered, and pointed out of the window. 'It's following us. It's horrible...' Heinrich understood: the GENTAMICIN was having some unpleasant side effects. He put his hand on her arm, and felt only ICINESS.

The ICINESS of Helen's skin, and her shivering made Henrich worry. What was he to do, to ease this bout of ague? Henrich and Helen were speeding through the growing darkness in the middle of nowhere. Henrich removed his hand from Helen's arm as he guided the car through a series of ESS (nope) turns. He remembered an ESSAY (uh-uh) that was written that explained the ESSENE'S (not yet) use of ESSENCE (almost) of rose in cases like this. What ever Henrich decided to do, he knew that it was ESSENTIAL to have Helen at her best when it was time to remove the hood and jesses from her goshawk, and unleash him on those squirrels. (quintuple play!)

Yes, it was ESSENTIAL for Helen to be at her best when it was time to fly her hawk, and no, Heinrich wasn't an ALARMIST, but he was very worried about Helen's health.

He may not have been an ALARMIST, but he only became even more worried when Helen's whimpering voice once again broke the silence of the car. "I'm scared. Heinrich, I'm really scared." Heinrich kept driving, not sure what to say. "Let's turn around. Can't we just have an ARMISTICE with the squirrels and turn around here?" Helen must be losing her mind, Heinrich thought. She usually was very enthusiastic about things like this.

Heinrich agreed that an ARMISTICE was in order. He didn't want to forget about the squirrels but Helen's infirmity had ICED the deal. He needed to get her back for treatment. Heinrich remembered that old Klingon proverb: "Revenge is a dish best served cold."

This thought got somwhat confused in Heinrich's mind, for instead of heading back the way they'd come, he headed north. And north. And more north, until they reached snow. He stopped at a gas station to buy an ice-scraper, because the windows had ICED over; and it was there that he saw the poster for the annual ICE-DANCE competition (is that cheating?). The notice was written in Swedish, and he realized with a start that they were in Trondheim...
