Paging Dr. Rorschach

Last night I was working on a story, and I bit stuck with what happens next. I decided to ask my friends for help and see if their replies would help jolt anything loose. So I texted them thusly: "What comes next go* my story, says one stuck and seeking random inspiration. Choose my own adventure."

Rogan and Eclaire said nothing, because they are lame.

Strunk said: Drinks then freelancing then drinks again after that poetry really complicated poetry. And you should do it mostly in your pjs."
Diablevert replied: The answer is YES. This is an automatice answer pre-programmed into my phone, but I concur.

(The conversation then veered off onto other topics, ending, after several hairpin turns, with the exchange:

Strunk: What do they say about the Welsh?
Diablevert That they fuck sheep.

He sort of let it drop there, and I can't really blame him.)

DDK said: What story?

Diablevert replied: Man stuck watching a kid for the weekend at a cheap beach resort. [T]here is a storm.

DDK: Kid goes crazy ape bonkers with hsi drill and sex, leads revolution against 'the man', wears aviator sunglasses and militaristic berets, rids nuns** off into sunset (that was going to be rides motorbike...' but i missed typed and thought it sounded better this way).

I told him I'd have to think on it.

And, lest you think all my friends are weird and unhelpful:

Natasha said: She buys a bag in a charity shoppe and it's filled with [blank] and her whole world changes

Which I think I might actually use some day.

After reading all this, I decided that they build a sandcastle.

*[sic] Damn you, T9 simple text feature! So often the words I choose are your second choice!
** DDK suffers from the same problem, apparently

Will do.

I thought we were speaking in metaphors again and you were asking a deep but imprecise question.
