“Be careful: roll it a millimeter too far & it’ll fall right off.”

Gorilla Kong grunted in annoyance. He was peering closely @ the magically floating platform magically sliding left & right just below.

When he saw it coming toward them, he tapped the tire just a millimeter, causing it to roll over the side…

Puff slapped his forehead. “I told you.”

They stared sadly @ the tree teasing them ‘bove with its trove o’ glasses sparkling with champagne.

This so stung their hearts that they rolled themselves right off the cliff, leaving no further noise but a faraway pop, like a burst balloon.
