Can you Pull yourself up?! The Caricaturist asked and Confused herself.

Can you pull yourself up?

Imagine that you are sitting in a loop at one end of a rope passing over a pulley attached to the ceiling, holding the other end of the rope in your hand (please recall a similar dilemma, which our dear pathetic Romeo faced,)  The question is – can you pull yourself up? What’s your answer?

  1. No way! Nobody could do that!
  2. I can’t do it but I am sure that Schwarzenegger could.
  3. I can’t but Keira Knightley could. (BTW, interesting picture on that link…the third when you scroll down – 99% of the women in this world won’t be able to wear that dress without making it look vulgar.)
  4. I can but nobody else can.

What do you say?

I’ll share my personal experience. I was down in the dungeon of Sloth, waiting for the devil to send his minions to get me – so that I could burn in hell for my deadly sin when I had this inspiration. I thought that I’d shed sloth and confess my sins on my blog, and everything’d slide back to normal! So I tried to pull myself up and out…and I wore myself out the last three days trying to get out, but I failed.  Fortunately, just before the minions arrived, Oprah Winfrey came to me with a conditional pardon from Hell. I am under observation and if I don’t become lazy again, I might be a free woman again.

So, despite the complete lack of response for the Story Carnival, I am smiling:) I’ll post a caricature of the sad me soon, when I share my Story Carnival woes with you. In the meantime, I’m back on duty – Oprah wants a payback for her good deed:-)

Hello friends,

The Story-in-the-Caricature Blog Carnival for July ended on July 31, 2010.

Here’s the caricature around which the writers wrote their fascinating stories.

Following story-writers Participated in the Story-in-the-Caricature Blog Carnival:

Here are links to their stories:

I thank all the authors for their participation in the carnival. I never thought that the caricature could be interpreted in so many interesting ways. Thank you so much:-)

I hope that the next carnival will interest more authors.  If you think you can’t think up a story, in my opinion you are inhibiting your thoughts – let them out…let them reach others!

I hope that the authors will present the above links on their own blogs as well.  It will help us all find more readers:-)

We’ll be announcing the next Carnival soon. If any of the previous participants would like to take the carnival to their blogs, write to me.
