Now, before I start, I would like to point out and make it very clear that I am not one for casting aspersions. That said, this post may read as though I’m doing exactly that.
The other day, as I was meandering around the Grinds as usual, I returned to the Mansion to find a note pinned to the very same tree that Maribel was nailed to recently.
The note simply said ‘One of your visitors is behind everything’.
I first read it and thought that it wasn’t possible… but the more I thought of it, the more likely it could actually be. I mean to say, everyone who visits here knows roughly the layout of the Mansion. Visitors here are the only ones to know about the content of the Jar deep inside the Catacombs. Visitors here only know about the ever changing views from the windows, and could easily have built that brick wall outside the Vestibule window… I thought at first to stop the views from being seen… but then, what if it was to stop them (the culprit) being spotted entering the cellar? (OK, I know it’s flimsy, especially as they could actually have been spotted building the brick wall in the first place – but they weren’t).
So, the note got me thinking.
And Halloween is coming up quite soon now, and I needed an Interactive Idea for this year’s post… so, combining the two, I hereby present my Halloween Challenge!
Using the contact form below, please write, in as few or as many words as possible, your excuse alibi reasons why it couldn’t possibly be you. As I obviously know that it couldn’t possibly be any of the fine visitors who come here, please feel free to make your explanations as far-fetched as possible; and if I get enough replies I shall create a poll to ask all of my visitors to vote on the most unlikely. The post with the unlikely alibis will be posted on Halloween, obviously linking to each contributor, as I like sharing things around here. The poll, should there be enough entries, shall be published in about a week’s time (extending Halloween into November, but never mind about that!)
So, I hope you can join in with this random Halloween challenge and get writing some far-fetched-fiction. As usual, it’s only for fun, and there isn’t a prize (apart from possibly winning the poll, that is)
I look forward to receiving your Unlikely Alibis…
