There used to be a lot of little fun creative excercises on this board. Instead of complaining, I'll start one.
Here are the rules. Create a word picture, a little scene, then ask a question about that scene. The next person answers that question in a creative and entertaining manner, and then creates a new image and a new question. It doesn't have to be related to the previous vignette at all, but go where you want.
Here's the first one.
A handsome latino man stands in a small bathroom in an old hotel shaving with a straight razor while he smokes an immaculately handrolled cigarette. He's stripped to the waist and his braces hang down from high waisted trousers. His tattoos are numerous, and in several languages most of them dead, none of them spanish. He's methodical in his grooming, but quick.
Why is this man smoking while shaving?
