12/30: Going somewhere?

Make a list of five forms of mass transit.  Buses, ferrys, trains, planes, wagon trains, whatever.  Multiple people involved.

 

Next, make a list of five types of people you might see there who might stand out to you.  Nuns, salesmen at a convention, a rock band complete with entourage.

 

Finally, make a list of things which people cannot physically do.  Flying, slithering across the ground like a snake, shedding their skin, snuffing out the sun with the thumb and index finger.

 

Now, mix these all up and grab a trio.  Put yourself in that place and observe them doing the activity.  Imagine them partaking in it.  See what happens.
