Fandango’s Story Starter #8

It’s time for my weekly Story Starter prompt. Here’s how it works. Every Tuesday morning (my time), I’m going to give you an incomplete “teaser” sentence and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build a story (prose or poetry) around that partial sentence.

And most of all, have fun.

    That said great prompt Fandango. Thank you!

          I’m using my iPhone, so maybe that’s the difference.

            Yeah that’ll explain it.

            You must hurt your hands typing away on that little screen.

              Nope. I’ve mastered thumb typing on a small phone keypad. I’ve been doing it since the late 90s, first with my BlackBerry and later with my iPhone
