SO. Here's how it will work (sorry - this isn't choose-your-own rules):
1. I'll describe the situation, adding a bunch of pictures to illustrate events, the mood, and protagonists more clearly (see below for an example):
2. At the end of the set-up, I'll provide several options for actions that could occur next. For example:
3. Leave a comment at the end of the post telling me which path you would prefer to continue down
4. I will provide the next installment at a time and place of my choosing - possibly months later, if history is any indication
Note: In the long and storied history of this blog, girl2 and I have received a grand total of SIX COMMENTS, so as you might imagine, this whole scenario is going to present a gigantic and possibly unresolvable number of vote-tallying conflicts and challenges.
