about this story

Jot down one word that you associate with each image.
1. Cover
2. Eccentric
3. Knowing
4. Message
5. Frustration

Identify a song that comes to mind for one or more of the images.
I can't explain why, but EXACTLY the soundtrack of "Night at the Museum".

Describe what all the images have in common.
All the images are static objects. Even the picture of the lizard doesn't imply much movement.

Create a short story about the images using the words that you associated with each image.
"For reasons you can't identify, a manhole cover beckons you to open it. You park your car and hoist the lid off before climbing down into the darkness below. When you reach the bottom, though, instead of a dank sewer you find a luxuriously furnished study, the walls covered in bookshelves holding books you've never heard of. On top of one of the thickest titles, you notice a small lizard looking up at you. You're not one to assume the worst of lizards, but the eyes of this one seem a little too intelligent. It points its tail at the wall where you see a simple message scrawled in chalk, "worry". Not knowing how to take that but not wanting to find out more, you climb back up the ladder only to find that your car is booted where you left it."
