The wind howled. Snow spattered against the windows and yet, two young women decided to brave the cold. A storm wouldn’t deter them from their journey.
They strapped up their boots, tied their scarves and braced themselves for the biting cold. It wasn’t going to be easy but the quest had to be done for wishes were to be fulfilled. Without the Golden Cow, not one soul would survive. The Golden Cow, the pho restaurant that is, was the solution for warmth.
Long story short – I left my perfectly warm apartment to trek a mile in the cold snow for pho.
Every snow day calls for pho. So I picked up my camera and forced my sister out of our apartment to walk a mile for pho. And that, my friends, was my adventure for the week.
Oh but of course it’s DC and it snowed again. And yes, we left our perfectly warm apartment to trek through even more snow. But this time it wasn’t for pho. It was for Target. Grocery shopping is always necessary. However, much like any trip to Target, you arrive with a small list and leave with a number of unnecessary items. And that, my friends, is why Target is so loveably dangerous.
As a kid, my imagination, much like all children, was out of this world. Even now, very little has changed. The way I see it, everyone and everything has a story. I may not vocalize what I’m visualizing very often but I’m always thinking of stories based on a situation I’m experiencing or something I’ve witnessed.
Example. If I see a lone bike on the sidewalk next to a pair of ballet slippers, I’m already brewing up a story in my mind behind that situation. I know I’m not the only who does this.
But isn’t it funny that when you need an idea most, you can’t think of anything? And when you’re just going through your day, you think of a million different things that are of no use?
I challenge you to take this chance to make an adventure out of anything that may seem too..blah. You may find yourself having a lot more fun than you think.
