Stories Full of Nouns

I was looking back at some old challenges and found one from several years ago that I still find fascinating.  Your task is to write a short, short story using only adjectives, nouns, and pronouns.  (The articles “a,” “an,” and “the” are technically adjectives.)  This means you won’t have complete sentences.  That’s fine.  Tell us a story.
