Ok guys so I went to Barnes and Noble tonight to do some editing and as usual--something totally bizarre happened. What you are about to read is a totally true story--I could not make this stuff up.
So I'm at BN with my sister editing and I got up at one point to go to the bathroom (don't you love it when I tell you about these things) and I pick the one stall that has an abandoned pair of slippers in them. Yes, slippers!
These aren't just any slippers though. These are slippers that someone painted green!
And...stuffed an origami swan into.
AND...wrote on the origami swan's wing, "Open me!"
I just stared at it and had no idea what to do.
Now, normally I'm quite the adventurous type when it comes to weird things like this...as Southern Princess discovered by blog stalking me over in Lisa and Laura's comments--I one time pushed my dance partner's butt through the basement window of a church while standing tip toe on an upside trashcan--and waited for her to race upstairs to punch in the code to turn off the alarm before the cops came--we weren't really breaking and entering into a church. I just lost my key---yeah I'm Jewish, but I totally had the keys to a church for a few years--that's where we had dance practice.
But I totally got off topic.
Anyway, I did not open the origami swan like it asked me to. I mean, who knows what was in there? What if it had been poop? Or worse?
But...wondering about the truth behind the origami swan in the painted slippers abandoned in the Barnes and Noble bathroom is going to keep me up all night wondering--what if I had opened the swan?
SO...your task should you choose to accept it-is to flash fiction what happened when I didn't chicken out and opened the swan in the comments section below. Ready...go!
---If you're not a flash fictiony person just tell me what you think might have happened.
