A puzzle for the Solver

Those who have wondered the wastelands of my blogs, especially the more creative posts, might notice that I have a tendency to think outside the box a tad. I often take the effort to shift things just so, and create things that are not quite how some might expect. When it comes time to do the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups, I frequently try that much harder to be “different”. Some weeks more successfully than others.

However, much of the time the prompts themselves are rather unique, making stepping out of the box more of a challenge since they are not in the box in the first place. This week’s challenge is a perfect example! The challenge … to add 100 words to the phrase:

‘What was the rabbit late for,’ wondered Alice …

But there is an additional twist. For the last ten words must be usable for someone to start NEXT WEEK’S challenge! I have already whipped out an attempt, though I am not sure I am happy with it. But no idea is a complete waste in my mind, so I will share it. Maybe I will grow to like it more, or maybe later on I will come up with another. Hope some enjoy!

Alice was a Solver. When the Elders came across a ‘thingummy’ that did not quite fit in the ‘whatsit’, they came to Alice to figure it out. They all had faith in her ability to figure out the most obscure puzzles. So naturally when they came across an ‘instruction manual’ in the old Wizard’s pile of curiosities, a manual with the strangest of titles, they immediately brought it to Alice. At first glance, even she was a bit stumped. What an odd thing to call it! “What was THE RABBIT LATE for,” wondered Alice.

Alice didn’t know what a curious little adventure she was about to begin!
