I decided the idea for my next story. This is how the idea came about.
Over the weekend, Dave and I were Christmas shopping at the mall. Since there were no parking spaces by the normal mall entrance, we parked by Macy’s. (It’s always the small things.) We went to the toy store and bought gifts for all the family munchkins. With our giant yellow bag of fun things, we headed back out through Macy’s. That was when I saw it.
The purple coat.
Not just any purple coat. The coat that was soon to be mine. Imagine for a second, a scientist’s lab coat. With a high-collar that brushes the bottom of my chin. Made out of purple wool. Yes, it’s super-cute in that I’m-going-to-take-over-the-world kind of way.
