this is something I would like to see tried. I will list off six words, and a short story must be created using these six words. the story can be of any length, but they have to include all of the words used. I will be the first judge, and will judge the winner a week after the words are chosen. the winner then gets to decide the next 6 words, and then choose whether or not he/she wants to be the next judge. the first six words are:

1.hop
2.string
3.bulb
4.building
5.bottle
6.knife

the game starts now, and I will be back to judge the winner next sunday.

I hopped.  The reason I was hopping was because I was passing a string under my feet repeatedly, also called jump-roping.  I was doing this inside my house, sadly so I jumped too high and broke a bulb in the chandelier.  Another reason I shouldn't have been jump roping was that the other people in my building don't like the noise.  Actually, just yesterday I was jump roping (I know, I'm stupid, but I didn't break anything) and 2 guys threatened me with a broken bottle and a knife.

There.  I call it:  Some reasons why I shouldn't jump-rope.

I was building a bulb out of string and superglue. It wasn't going well. My fingers were covered with cuts and I'd accidentally tied my foot to the ground, forcing me to hop around wildly before I could dump the bottle of antiseptic on my fingers and grab a knife to saw at the rope with. Needless to say, it didn't end well either, and my non-existent spirit cat Cupcake ended up batting it to its death.

As pang so helpfully pointed out, I am indeed of the femalloid.
I shall try and pick words that aren't terrible.
1] Articulate
2] Bracket
3] Curly
4] Voluminous
5] Sparkly
6] Fluid
...they're terrible words aren't they.

During 1776, the Colonies were essentially forced to articulate, or unify, into what would soon be the United States of America. Under the Brackets, or arches, of Independence Hall, then known as Philadelphia Hall. The mind under the curly hair of Thomas Jefferson, was the mind that formulated most of the Declaration. Eventually, this would be what still keeps us free, from the voluminous ocean to the east, the Atlantic, all the way to the sparkly blue waves of the west coast, with all of the liquid which surround our great country.

How about that? It's more Non-fiction then fiction, but still a story, nonetheless.

Well since nobody else feels like contributing, you win :D
However you missed 'fluid.' Maybe you meant fluid where you had liquid. And I'm pretty sure articulate doesn't mean unify. :3
Now pick the words! Onwards we go!
