I like to tell stories.
I have kept little scraps of ideas and half-written stories since I was in high school. Sometimes a little idea will come to me, and I'll write it down in a little notebook hoping that one day I will have the time and talent to actually write the full story. I rarely succeed.
After listening to "Me, Myself, and Muse" on Radiolab, I immediately thought back to one particular scrap of story. I had to dig, but I finally found a paragraph of an idea from around 2004/2005.
Recently, I fleshed out that old scrap. This is what I came up with.
Death in Vegas is one of my all-time favorite bands. "Aisha" was one of my favorite songs in high school, and I saw the video for it once really late at night on MTV 2. So, I wrote a short story based on it in 2009. It was the first story I ever finished.
