It’s Saturday storytelling time again! As I’m sure you’ll recall, this is the day I post a found picture, and everybody in the world writes a short story about it, and then we all sip chardonnay and discuss each others’ stories. My original idea was to keep them quick and short and not think about it too much, just kind of see what you had in your head that you didn’t know was there until you started writing. I mentioned earlier in the week that I’d started thinking about the stories more and more, but not this week, this week I wrote it all in about half an hour, like a big flurry of birds flying in the air. Here’s your photo for the day:

If you’d like to write a story, send it to me and I’ll post it with mine after the jump. Or send a link, and I’ll include that here.
