Tell me a story

November 1, 2017 - 12:56pm
"It was a dark and stormy night..." "Once upon a time..." "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." Nope, those certainly don't work. They might be some of the most famous openings to stories, but they're not working for me today. It's probably because I'm struggling to come up with any story to tell at all. I wish I had some inspiring anecdote or interesting tale to weave. At the very least, I would settle for a humorous and embarrassing account to relay from the last week. Whether it's the cold (um, it was snowing yesterday!) or maybe the Halloween candy sugar buzz wearing off, I'm definitely struggling to put words on the screen. It's not like I didn't do anything last week. My daughter flew into town for a short visit and we crammed as much as we could into a few days. Cider mill, movie, shopping, favorite restaurants - we barely slowed down.
