Ha! We haven’t had one of these from Michael for a while, and they are such fun to do!
Michael’s challenge this week is as follows:
At the recent Grimster’s Convention it was agreed that lanmiters would no longer be allowed.
Use this statement adding your own interpretation of “grimsters” and what you think “lanmiters” might be.
Here’s my take:
At the recent Grimster’s Convention it was agreed that lanmiters would no longer be allowed. Of course the committee had to be careful not to offend anyone, so it was a closed meeting for members only.
The Grimsters were a funny lot, which was ironic in a way as they lived up to their name of being ‘grim’. They never smiled, never laughed, and were polite but never participated in any jovial banter. They all had grey hair and long faces, not so much as a crinkled laughter line around the eyes between them, but surprisingly, they had a membership of over 50.
Originally, Lanmiters, or relatives of the Grimsters, were permitted to attend the four annual functions, but one young upstart had decided to liven things up by placing whoopee cushions under the seats of the committee. This had led to riotous laughter amongst non-members, which was disruptive and simply not allowed. Someone had to be sensible at all times, and practical jokes were not tolerated, hence the decision not to admit lanmiters into the fold, for whatever reason.
