Sorry, Albert, no Snuffles. :(

Everyone else — friends and strangers alike — thank you so much for coming to my site and participating in my little birthday game! I had a ton of fun reading your answers and putting them into my mad libs. Yes, I wrote it, so this should be interesting. I’ve filled in Mary’s answers below, but feel free to substitute your own and/or make up new ones.

Once upon a time in a (1) tree far far away, there lived a young woman with big (2) clouds. But when this (3) pretty girl graduated from school, the pressures of money and people’s (4) puppies led her to put her dreams on hold and seek employment. She went to work for an (5) email who she knew was weird from the start, but she ignored her instincts, telling herself that she shouldn’t be so quick to (6) read. Unfortunately, her instincts were right, and the guy turned out to be even more of a (7) mug than she imagined! After one (8) nanosecond she could take no more. She quit and moved into a humble (9) schoolhouse with her (10) second cousin-in-law twice removed. There she began to launch her career as a (11) baker.

Ten years later, she was a superstar in her field. She was even awarded the (12) Pulitzer Prize! That night in her acceptance speech, she said, “I’d like to thank my mom, my dad, (13) Jesus H. Christ, and surprisingly enough, my old boss. If he hadn’t blown up at me for (14) answering the phone, I wouldn’t be here today. Thank you!”

Of course, a few journalists found out who this old boss was and he became an overnight sensation. All the hate (15) kitties he received really made him think, and soon he turned over a (16) fluffy leaf. He hired a new, friendly manager for his company and devoted all his time to the Save the (17) Notebooks Foundation. He even sent the young woman a (18) leaf to thank her for (19) walking his eyes.

From then on, they all lived (20) politely ever after.
