Pad & Pen

January 1, 2012 by Richard Wright in Journal, Life

6612355941_7c5d7083fdA perfect start to the New Year. Me, this pen, and this pad. Making stories. Long may it continue.

The day hasn’t been without some oddness though. Just half an hour ago, a neighbour knocked on the door, looking a little embarrassed. His opening gambit?

“Um. I think I might have accidentally borrowed your car…”

The story behind such a splendid conversational launch point actually diminishes the sensation of bewilderment to far less entertaining levels, and so I’m not going to tell you what it is (except to confirm that the borrowing of a whole car was indeed an accident, and the bottle of liquid apology that accompanied the explanation was unnecessary, though gratefully recieved). I’ll leave it to your imagination. If you can concoct a suitable scenario, feel free to post it below. The best one will win… um… the adulation of all those who follow, probably…

Happy New Year!
