#3 Dictionry Bomb

Open a dictionary or thesaurus to a random page and put your finger on the page. What’s the key word in that general vacinity? Write it down. Do it again. Write it down. Do this as many times as you’d like (can stop at 3), but no more than 5 interesting words. Now connect them with a story.
