oh Sam, just stick to your style of writing, will you? As you know, it is enjoyed by most.

as for the guys who want more thrilling endings etc, ever heard the story about the father, son and the donkey?

I have been an extremely passive member here as I dont own anything wheels and have never driven anything. But somehow wheels fascinate me and hence t-bhp.

Reading Sam's stories brings so many emotions that I am prompted to write a heartfelt thanks to him. Somehow after reading his few stories, i am really curious to meet him in person or at least see him once !

Play it again, Sam

Your special effects 'textsonar' reminds me of Batman, Garth and Superman Comics back in the Eighties. Ho Ho

and I am sure you must have not left these words out: Puch!, Pow!, Ka-Pow!

Wow, nice reading. Today at 3:15 I am having exams and here I am! Nice gripping story and as usual, excellent write up. The narration is in a class of its own.

I have one question.
@Sam Kapasi : At the end of story 2, you came home and said " Richshaw rammed into your bike " and then you are minding your business as posted in your post. Does this mean you lied to your father ? You are lucky that he believed you. But in my case, I just cannot lie.
P.S. : Parents are the one who know everything. If you lie they can catch you.

Damn...missed lunch coz of this story. I just found this thread today and time just flew going through all the pages. A simple yet so engrossing story, it was like an afternoon TV soap for men

Sam, I truly salute your spirit of life.

Yes,*ashamed look* I lied to my Dad. I was younger then and more stupid. It's just something that young boys do.
I am lucky it was my Dad. If my Mum was around and alive, she would have known in a nano-second that I was lying.

lol. So I've been told by many. A bit undeserving though, as there are some truly wonderful and talented writers on the forum.

Thank you. I have a story already. This one will be fun and totally related to the forum. I'll write it after Diwali though

A YetiBlog® has 2 massive disadvantages.

1) It is written in retrospect-present.
2) It is a real-life account

Therefore, regardless of the unexpected end, you already know that the lead character already survived to tell the tale.

Besides, I guess this is the style I've discovered I'm comfortable with. The story is quick right from the start, many twists and turns and bumps and bends and then a quick happy end.

I know you like it when I write an end and then an emotional epilogue, I've realised that you enjoy an emotional ending.

I'll try to please you next time
Dear Sam,

Have you ever read an author called Dashiell Hammet?

regards,
bonobashi
