A Lige and Ellis story

Immagination at work: 

 I came into the game in the middle, but when I started listening, Ellis came running into the room to excitedly report to Lige, “Old McDonald (the owner of McDonalds, for those of you not in the know) says that we can have the whole pet store! We can have all the animals to eat.” Lige: “All the animals are going to eat us? We had better shoot them!” (Note the subtle mis-understanding of Ellis to suit his personal pretend preferences.) At this point, Lige grabs his squirt gun, jumps up on the papasan chair and starts defending it like a fortress. Ellis jumps up next to him, strikes a defensive stance, and says, “Can I borrow your spear?” Lige grabs his imaginary spear, hands it to Ellis, and they start slaying dangerous animals sent from the pet store to eat them. 10 minutes later, they were still defending their fortress with shooting, spearing and kung-fu moves.
