  ~It's a game started this sometime last year, everything before F was done sometime around July last year, I found them in a note book.
Go around and collect ten words of a letter at random, write them down in the order you find them, and write a story around it. Doesn't matter if it's likely, just as long as it's followable to any degree.
It's entertaining, good for killing time waiting in an office, and yields entertaining, albeit silly results =P~

A: (Apple, Aristocrat, Arsenic, Arbitrary, Assure, African, Afghan, Apartment, Appearance, Accomplishment, Accordion)

I have an apple tree, given to me as a gift from two grateful aristocrats; I saved them from arsenic poisoning, though it was quite arbitrary, I assure you.
I was their housekeeper, an African and an Afghan couple who had just moved into their appartment, and when I made my appearance to do the dishes, I saw the gray stain on the side of the sink. They told me that what I did was quite an accomplishment, and now I sit under my tree every evening, playing my accordion.
