I need a story about “power”!
So I’ve had a bit of a change of plans for my holidays and I’m going to be going to Toronto to spend it with my family1. One of the things I’ll be doing in Toronto is going to a Stone Soup supper. You can read the long version of what a Stone Soup supper is here, but the gist of it is that it’s a potluck dinner where people tell stories around a given theme. Unlike Fight Club, if it’s your first time, you don’t have to fight tell a story, but since I have the gift of the gab and am an attention whore, I would like to tell a story if I can come up with one.
The theme for this particular evening is “power”. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of a story that fits. I mean, my go-to story, when I’m in need of telling a good one, is the story of my epic typo. But I’m not sure how I’d fit that to the theme of “power”. The power of a single letter? Seems a bit weak.
Anyhoo, I’ve decided to see if I can crowdsource a story. Does anyone have a good story related to power? Or can you think of any of my stories that you could link to that theme in some way?
