Let's call this Little Snippets of Life.
Scene: Burger King
The main character: An average height woman, slightly chunky, with light brown curly hair wearing a fedora, a black vest and black pants.
She is standing in line behind me SINGING! Yes, that's right, singing. O-kay. Singing, why? I have no freakin' idea. I am standing in line waiting for my turn (seems to be a busy afternoon at BK) and this young woman is standing behind me singing. I was really tempted to turn around and look at her, but no, I didn't. But of course I was curious. What on earth prompts a person to suddenly break into song in a public place? She wasn't with anyone else that she might be singing to.
Okay, I'm a very curious person. I asked my husband what he thought about this. He said, "She must have forgotten to take her meds today."
Maybe. I just thought she'd make a good character for an upcoming story.
So how about you? Have you encountered anyone recently who might make an interesting character in one of your stories?
