Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 2, Day 5

Post by DadofTwins »

It's an all-guest-writer Friday at the SHC.

One of the things I love about the writing team is sometimes I get clues from them that are interesting in and of themselves, but short enough that I can sprinkle in some TOM here and there for flavoring.

So free points (and kudos) to our submitters today.

Bon appetit.
