Originally started just a week or so ago by Melissa @ The Things I'd Tell You, the Muse Wars continued with the 2nd challenge set by Tanya @ Madmother, and the 3rd by me. This, the 4th challenge was set by Lori @ Random Ramblings of a SAHM. Anyone can join in, you just need to write a story as your interpretation of the photo in less that 500 words and then link to Lori's blog.
God, here they where in a foreign city, driving on the wrong side of the road, down a busy city street and night was falling. Jet lagged, she had obviously taken a wrong turn, their hotel was nowhere in sight. Maybe they should just ask someone directions, but they were 2 women on their own, on their first overseas holiday. But hey, this was a big city, they should be right, shouldn't they?
"What about that nice man over there", her friend asked, "maybe we could ask him?"
But she was too scared and so she drove on further, turning blindly down streets, trying to get back to where they should be. Why didn't she hire that NavMan thingy, she scolded herself. Trying to save a little hard earned cash and now they were totally lost.
"How about we park here her", friend said, "and buy a NavMan or whatever in that electrical store? It really will make it easier for us while we are here, I mean we are so lost and we only got off the plane a couple of hours ago. Imagine how lost we could get in the week we are here" her friend calmly asked. Seemed to make sense now.
So she parked the car and shelled out more money than it would have cost to hire the bloody thing. When she got back they plugged it in and typed in the address. Imagine their surprise when it answered back in French instead of English - how could she have forgotten they were in France. They both burst out laughing, oh the stories they would have to tell when they got back home.
Now if they could just find their hotel!!
