So I actually just had a kind of brilliant idea for Kate

I was taking a shower today and kind of idly thinking about what I would do later, and I remembered the little “game” I made up one day of writing 200 word short stories about random drawings.

That made me think of another post I made about a similar “game” that never got acted on:
