Code Monkey Add a Line

edited July 2013 in Forum Games
Our very own Code Monkey story about his exploits through the Jocoverse told one(ish) line at a time. 
I'll start it off in the traditional way but please don't take it to the obvious next step. This is a new adventure for Code Monkey.
Here we go...

Code Monkey wiped the sleep from his eyes as he poured his morning coffee. 


  • He liked it cold and black, just like her heart.
  • He checked the fridge. "Hmmph. No coffee cake. Guess it's a cereal morning."

    Rummaging through the pantry, he found no cereal but plenty of Fritos. "I wonder if Fritos would make a good breakfast cereal. Maybe with a little milk," he mused.
  • "What I really need is some sort of 'Wake Up' pill," He sat at the table and wondered if anybody already made them and what would go into them. 
  • Now truly curious, he did a quick internet search and found a press release titled "Revolutionize your morning with the new Wake Up Pills from Tuscon Diagnostics!"

    "Tuscon Diagnostics," he thought. "Sounds familiar. Oh; they're a division of Acme Industries, which also sells Earthquake Pills."
  • Hmm, side effects include pancreatic tremors, geothermal lung, and skeletal avalanching.  What?
  • And falling rocks:

    "That it does," he thought, falling over for the sheer thrill of it. As he peeled himself up off the floor, he made a mental note to try to fix the malfunctions his tinkering had caused in his floor-cleaning robot, so that he could actually use it.
  • Unbeknownst to him, the robot had become sentient, and was planning his demise.
  • The robot had upgraded its arm to a smashy claw, and expected to clean the floor with Code Monkey.

    "Hey little buddy," Code Monkey said as the robot rushed to his side, smashy claw raised. "That's a nice claw you've made yourself." Code Monkey held a cleaning rag out to the robot. The robotic companion gave a frustrated *beep-boop*, grabbed the cloth, and started cleaning the floor, biding its time.
  • Deciding he might be safer at work, Code Monkey grabbed his things and rushed out of the house.

    The robot had planned for this eventuality and triggered the wire trip on the front step as Code Monkey attempted his hurried escape.

    edit: to fix typo on eventuality.
  • An icosahedral cage came rolling down from the top of the house, but Code Monkey tucked into a ball, rolled out from under the cage, and sprung out of the way just in time, landing safely on the first branch of the tree in the front yard.
  • Then he decided he had PROBABLY leave. But, before he could leave, he noticed his house was on fire! HE LEFT THE TOASTER ON!
  • "Stupid!" he thought to himself. "Maybe I shouldn't have used the toaster oven to heat up the coffee cake everyday."
