The Instigator: Blogdramedy
The Item for Day 12: 12 Drummers Drumming
The Person all caught up and Ready to Go: Me
“What are you kids doing here?!” A man shouted.
Kate and Lisa spun around and saw a policeman standing in front of them.
“We’re uh…” Kate stammered, as the pipers marched out of sight. “trying to find out if – ”
“ – bagpipes sound different under bridges.” Lisa interrupted.
Kate shot Lisa a look.
“Right. I’m sure that’s it.” The policeman said, escorting the girls up the hill.
The parade underway, the sidewalk was filled with spectators. The policeman told the girls to steer clear of the bridge, and he walked away.
Kate nudged Lisa. “If bagpipes sound different under bridges?”
“What?! I didn’t want you to tell him why we were there.”
“Yeah, once I heard the bagpipes.”
Lisa started to speak. Suddenly, spectators lunged forward, knocking her into the parade, and twelve drummers drumming swept her away.

haha…so funny…You did it! Congratulations and thank you for the laughs, chuckles and smiles. Thank you for taking us through the funny corridors of your mind…now I want to be swept by the strains of “The Little Drummer Boy”. Funny where our thoughts lead us.
Thank you for joining me these past 12 days, Georgette. I am glad I was able to entertain and make you laugh. Speaking of The Little Drummer Boy, you should read Amy’s 12th Day post: http://fixitordeal.wordpress.com/2011/12/12/on-the-twelfth-day-of-blogfestivus-hallelujah-its-over/
Marching with a drum is not much fun.
At least if you have long monkey legs.
You smack them into the bottom of said drum with every step you take.
Or… so… I… hear.
Hilarious. But, I would think long legs would make it easier? Perhaps a combo short waist/long legs isn’t good?
I’m guessing your thighs had many a bruises? Thanks for reading, SIG!
Lenore congrats on completion of the challenge successfully. I just wish 12 drummer will drum and give us all a feeling of celebration, of your victory in this challenge. 🙂
Now i hope you will back to your own world, and invite us all to be part of that funny world soon.
Thank you, Arindam.
Congratulations on finishing the challenge! Are we ever going to know the answer to the burning question of what’s under the pipers’ kilts?
I’ll do my best to find out at the next Highland festival. Stay tuned!
You did it! Congrats!
Thank you, Patti! I appreciated your support.
Congratulations! Your Blog Festivus was fabulous and fun.
Do tell! Do they or don’t they wear undergarments under their kilts? What did the girls on the bus say?
The girls on the bus never talked to me. I was hoping I’d be ‘in the know’ using my narrator card. I would have gotten away with it, too – had those kids not gotten snatched up by the Man!
Talk about quick, ya know that policeman believed her right?
Of course he believed her. Why else would they be under the bridge? (smile)
Quick thinking in the response to the policeman. But did she ever find out about the kilt andwhat is worn under it. I was married to a Scotsman for 41 years so I know the answer..
Judith, how much is this going to cost us to learn the answer?! 🙂
Honestly, Judith. You’re not playing nice. After I sent Dylan your way, too…
Good job! Fun that you continued from day 11.
Thanks, Random. This was a fun ride.
Hahaha! I guess we’re all gonna have to find our own “pipers” to find out the answer to this question! I hope no one gets arrested.
Congrats on surviving BlogFestivus!
Congrats back to you, Amy! Here’s to not getting arrested.
We did it! Congratulations for sticking it out to the very ambiguous end. 😉 It’s been great fun reading your stories and maybe we’ll see you back next year for another round of BlogFestivus. Different theme, same insanity.
Cheers, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Thanks for organizing this, Blogdramedy. Fun was had by all. Here’s to participating in the next challenge of insanity (or something).
This has been fun to follow along! I think you need to do it all again, we can have 12 more days of Christmas right?
*shudder* Again? So quickly? It is hard enough for me to keep posts down to just 144 words… add to it the fact that it has to include specific items. Tempting, but um – no thank you. (smile) Glad you enjoyed the posts, Bridget. I appreciate you following along!
Phew you did it. Well done, loved the 12 posts!
Sha’woo and phew, for certain! Glad you liked it, Vix. Thanks for sticking around for 12 days.
