    Just continue the story adding a single sentence it should be related to the previous though.

    I'll begin: -
    One early morning a day before Christmas I woke up to realize I had a whole lot of gift wrapping to do.

      As I was about to wrap the gifts, I heard a loud knock at my door.  I got up from my front room floor and walked towards the door.  As I looked through my peephole, there was my nosy and annoying neighbor, Mrs. Bainbridge.

    She had a dead chicken in one hand and a shotgun in the other.

    I opened the door.

    She raised the shotgun...

    I closed the door.

    It was Jehovah's Witnesses...

    I suddenly realized that I knew the purpose of this untimely visit...

      I called on and my two ferocious dogs were by my side ready to scare off the J. Witnesses when I open the door.

        The Jehovah witnesses ran away from the ferocious dogs.  I was finally at peace and was ready to place the gifts underneath my Christmas tree and then the bell rang again......Oh no, I thought not again!

          But this time it wasn't the front door, my dogs were busy in the front porch and the back door was waiting to be opened. Ding Dong!!

            Oh no I thought not that nosy busybody Mrs. Bainbridge again.  I reluctantly opened the door and it was Mrs. Hollingsworth.   I asked myself what did she want.  Mrs. Hollingsworth invited herself in my house............

              She stayed on and on and kept filling my ears with crazy words until I had enough... It was time for dinner but she wouldn't budge.

    There was no use in trying to hint around about dinner, for she was not one for listening to anyone about anything, so I decided there was only one choice to end the visit and get on with my dinner.  I had to be blunt with her.

    I picked her up by her walker which was attached to her hip and kicked her to the curb.

    Having finished this task, I decided it is time to pay another visit to the witch.
