What If?


You are at your child’s baseball game. There is a perfectly polished mother standing against the fence cheering her child on. She is wearing a Burberry coat, penny loafers, chino’s and her shiny blonde hair is pulled up in a tight ponytail. What if the temperature spiked and this mother found herself too hot in her expensive coat? She takes off the coat and underneath she is wearing a battered holey tank top and her arms are covered with tattoos that stretch from her shoulders to her wrists, would this surprise you?

Where am I going with this? This scenario is part of the What If game I like to play. I must alert you this game can become addicting. It can be played alone or with others and it is a great way to add spice to your stories. Try doing this for one day and see what new idea’s you come up with. Dare to put a twist on ordinary and you may find you come up with extraordinary.
