Today I was driving through eastern North Carolina and I came across this little gas-and-go store at a bridge intersection.
(The bridge takes you over to the coast, where apparently, a lot of fisherman go. At this little crossroads, they can get worms [for bait] and coffee [for some energy] on their way.)
I LOVE the name of this store. It’s a clever bit of naming that (unless you’re a local fisherman) makes you think twice. I adore the incongruity.
Here’s Your Prompt
- Write a story about “worms and coffee.” Caveat: it can’t be about fishing.
- If you don’t like the idea of worms and coffee, open up the dictionary to a random page, close your eyes and drop your finger down on a word. Do this twice or more, until you come up with two different nouns. You can connect them with “and” or “or.”
- Choose any of these random word pairs that I generated using a random noun generator found on the internet:
- okra and alligators
- pen and Zinc
- mountain and soda
- caterpillar or desert
- storms or fairies
