You may do one and only one of the following to make a new word from the word the poster above you posted.
1)Change one existing letter of the word TPAU posted for example you could change the p to an l to turn pending to lending
2)Add one letter to the word TPAU posted for example you could add an s to the start of pending to make spending
3)Remove one letter from the word TPAU posted for example you could remove the p from pending to make ending

While not forbidden adding an s to the end of the word TPAU posted to make it plural for example turning dog into dogs is discouraged.
I would in case you are ninjaed I would recommend quoting the word you are changing
Lastly to avoid loops avoid words that have been used recently.

And the word to start things of is

Also, we had an odd narrative going for the last 10 words - a couple were just finished sleeping together in their lair, before looking for government benefits only to discover the program had been privatised. They start to drink away their sorrows and in their inebriated state, they decide they may as well go for the worlds longest blink.

As a result, in the far future palaeontologists of some sapient species that has yet to evolve will find the preserved remains of a bear with a bullet in it. Also we were able to carry on with the barbecue, and nobody got mauled.

According to me, we had spare meat for the warg because we harvested the bear for it after I shot it. Preserved remains, as if! I'm not a fan of your version of the story.

I can assure everyone, but most importantly the wargís owner, that the meat I fed it was from the barbecue supplies, rather than the tar-soaked carcass of a bear of unknown provenance. For starters, I wouldnít even know how to begin butchering a bear, although Iíve heard you should avoid the liver as itís rather poisonous.
