Postcards Day 4

Pissarro PaintingToday’s shorty was inspired by a postcard showing the Pissarro painting pictured here (photo credit below). It reminded me of Colonial Williamsburg, VA, on a blurry winter day, which in turn sparked the story.

Working Title: Tourons
1st Sentence: Tourons, they called them, because crossing the words “tourist” and “moron” is so clever, and college kids are nothing if not clever.
Favorite Sentence: It was a really funny story, crafted with care and including plenty of vulgar words applied to the SUV-ful of docile lambs from Michigan.
Word Length: 569
