Ever see something mundane (or see something and mistake it for something else) that prompts a story idea? Aren’t those moments great? *sigh*
Something that, on its own, is just kind of odd. Yet, for some reason it just strikes you and sticks with you and demands to be written into something bigger and more meaningful.
This happens to me often. Sometimes when I listen to the side effects lists in pharmaceutical commercials 😉 Or when I read the warning labels of certain products.
Well, today it happened to me again. This time at the grocery store in the “water” isle. Yes. The WATER isle. It still boggles my mind that we have an entire isle devoted to buying…water. But, that’s a rant for another day.
Now, I know what it’s for, but damn if a title like that doesn’t just bring out the grossest, most evil story ideas >:) As soon as I saw it, I swear my fingers literally twitched–desperate to be at the keyboard pounding out…well, something…I don’t know what yet 😉
