Exquisite Corpse_ The Man With Burnt Hands

  I had someone pass on a passage to me a while back over this site called, Interpals.com (more about that later). He came up with a character named Norman, and a whole intro that flows so well.

Not only that but he was given the uncanny necessity to sit on a bus, unable to grasp rails of any sort. He did not want to retire from his job although they offered further menial compensation. He did not take his baggage with him to work but he sure laid it out when he came home….
