    This is just a short-lived thread (12 days) for those who enjoy writing. Twelve days to go until Reunion 2008.
    Twelve days for writing something inspired by the prompt.

    It was 12 o'clock
    She turned the key in the lock
    And entered the house
    As quiet as a mouse

    She opened the door
    And gasped as she saw
    On the table a bag
    Intended for swag

    She took out her pen
    Wrote neatly, and then
    Round the neck of that bag
    Tied a Reunion tag.

    At just 9 years old, this young lady was already showing the trademarks of her future leadership skills. Collecting swag, finding campsites, calling and reserving pavilions, making a network of friends that someday would be called upon to arrive at a specific destination at a specific time, and if any would fail to show, they would feel enormous guilt at having missed a fantastic event.

    As we now know, that historic meeting of "Twelevers," as they are known, was the pivotal event in our lives which led to the prosperity and success of all mankind.

    Could we have known that this 9 year old girl, with her determined effort, would grow up to be........J15Bell!!!

    And that is The Rest of the Story.

    How about:

    Sixteen point zero twelevers attending
    Hundred point zero fun to be had
    Ninety Nine point Nine percent guilt for not being able to go

    Just 9 years old and unwanted. "Too big", some of the children had said. "Can't do enough", said others. Not so long ago being the centre of attraction had been wonderful. But time had moved on.
