Here is a game that looks fun to try.  I found in the Parade Magazine in the Sunday paper.

You take whatever sentence you want and make a story by alternating sentences with the words 'fortunately, unfortunately'.

For instance:

"Unfortunately, there is a tiger in the car."

"Fortunately, he doesn't eat women."

"Unfortunately, he looks really, really hungry!"

"Fortunately, I have a large piece of raw meat in my purse." etc. etc.

I'll start:

Unfortunately, it is very hot and humid today.
