Writing Exercise – Sentences

Assignment: Starting sentences with, “I met him on the stairs….”

1. I met him on the stairs, the quiet passing of two souls. Then he dropped his bag of groceries and we were knee-deep in cans of tuna and apples rolling dangerously underfoot.

2. I met him on the stairs.

“Hey! You’re the guy I’ve been looking for.” He said.

“Oh really?” I said. “What did I do now?” I thought to myself.

“Yeah. I’m the super here and you owe some rent…I’m not puttin’ up with that, ya hear?”

Damn. Moving again it looks like.

3. I met him on the stairs, wind-blown and red-faced.

“Elevators out again?” I asked.

He rolled his eyes as he panted past me.
