Fandango’s Story Starter #71

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 a “teaser” sentence and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build a story (prose or poetry) around that sentence. It doesn’t have to be the first sentence in your story, and you don’t even have to use it in your post at all if you don’t want to. The purpose of the teaser is simply to spark your imagination and to get your storytelling juices flowing.

If you care to write and post a story built from this teaser, be sure to link back to this post and to tag your post with #FSS. I would also encourage you to read and enjoy what your fellow bloggers do with their stories.

And most of all, have fun.

    An indecisive chap
    Mistook the path for freeway

    Craig had to choose a path, but given his history of making poor decisions, he opted to choose a path instead.

    Craig had to choose a path, but given his history of making poor decisions, he decided to turn round and go home. Ma was making rabbit pie tonight.
