It would be great if we could use a story as a jumping off point for a conversation board or forum of some kind where everyone’s “responses” read like a conversation and didn’t show up as stories on their profiles. This would allow people to make new connections and most of all just loosen up and communicate.
Baker: There was a pickax sitting there and I distinctly remember looking at the pickax and instantly turning away. Because I’d have to pull it back out… Then I grabbed the shovel and hit him in the head with it as hard as I could. I remember expecting him to drop like they do in the movies. I hit him twice. Right on top of his head, as hard as I could. It was like — nothing. He was bleeding profusely. But it didn’t phase him. That fucked me up. You see all these goddamn movies — you hit someone with a broomstick and they fall over. I put everything I had into hitting him with that shovel. And — nothing.
