On the web, I could only find left-right stories for Christmas or baby showers, so I wrote this left-right story for a family reunion, but with a few changes, you could use it for any occasion.
This is a fun game. Everyone stands or sits in a circle. You hand a gift-wrapped prize to some of the participants (fairly evenly distribute the prizes around the circle). Read the story below. When they hear you say "right", they will pass the prize one time, to the person on their right, and the same with the word "left". When you say "The End", any person holding a prize gets to keep it. You can change the story to suit your needs.
LEFTy WRIGHT reached into his RIGHT pocket with his RIGHT hand and pulled out the downRIGHT long string of firecrackers that his friend, Mike LEFTtoe, had given him. LEFTy strolled RIGHT into his neighbor's RIGHT nice yard, pulled a downRIGHT battered book of matches out of his LEFT pocket and mumbled, "alRIGHT! One match LEFT."
Then LEFTy veered LEFT and snuck RIGHT into the house. LEFTy was RIGHTly amazed to see so many downRIGHT good-looking (or you can say goofy-looking) folks to his RIGHT and to his LEFT. This must be the __________ family reunion. alRIGHT!
LEFTy dropped down on his LEFT knee, then his RIGHT knee. Then he silently fell LEFTward onto his belly. RIGHT on, no one saw him, but LEFTy would have to act downRIGHT fast.
LEFTy placed the firecrackers RIGHT on the floor, struck the match with his LEFT hand and lit the downRIGHT short fuse. And that is how all the folks at the __________ family reunion learned to tapdance.

I love your story. We play this game every year at the family Christmas party and I've made them up too.
