We've done this before, but called it a Progressive Mystery, as in Progressive Dinners. This time I'm calling it a Do It Yourself Mystery, since a few people thought we were being political, though we were collaborating on putting together a mystery.
I'll start it off. It's up to everyone out there to move the mystery along. We have a week for it to reach some kind of conclusion, crazy or not. It's up to you, our commenters, where the story will land.
Please extend the story in the comment section.
Here's the beginning:
Wendy hated going down to the basement to do the clothes, but unfortunately that's where her washer and dryer were.
The worst time was at night, when every creak in the house sounded like footsteps.
Why had she forgotten to take out the clothes earlier? She reached into the dryer and pulled out a towel.
