Food seems to be preoccupying a lot of people’s minds around this time of year. The 23rd was Melba Toast Day and National Chip and Dip Day; the 24th was National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day; today is both Pecan Day and Waffle Day; tomorrow is National Spinach Day; and the 28th is Something on a Stick Day. Add to that the fact that Sunday also happens to be Easter, which is often associated with candy.
With that in mind, I thought we’d do something a little different this week and have characters commonly associated with food – including characters that are food. Let’s have fun with this one!
As usual, our contest will begin with three things: character, setting, and genre.
We spun, and our three elements are character: cop, setting: fair, and genre: steam punk. Let’s see what you can do with that. lol
Feel free to write a story using those or spin a new set of your own. Be sure to include which three elements you’re using.
- cereal mascot
- diner patron
- corn dog
- chocolate bunny
- field of grass
- inside an egg
- in the stomach
- backyard barbecue
- police car
- police station
- eating contest
- steam punk
