Every month I try to write a story using words or phrases submitted to me by others. You can submit some to me by using my twitter @OdlyOtter and the hashtag
#createsomething below is this month’s submission and story. If you made a suggestion, thank you, you should get a high five. This one is also slightly inspired by the novel Ready player 1.

“You are crazy Kobold, the Borderlands series had some of the best visuals in a game I have ever seen!” He said as he crunched another cashew in his mouth.
