Daily writing prompt
Scour the news for an entirely uninteresting story. Consider how it connects to your life. Write about that.

The most uninteresting news story I could find concerns a pound shop in England (not really sure what that is) that had someone steal a roll of tin foil valued at 1 pound. This cunning criminal struck at 6 pm on November 26th in Friargate (which is also in Preston?). This was reported in some sort of newspaper as there is a picture of the article on the website (see above link).

How this connects to my life…..well if the crime rate is so low in this town that this is news, I mean….wow! This is what we call an average Tuesday here in America, theft is almost accepted, it is built into the prices of goods at around 10-15% extra to offset the losses. I think our law-makers should be taking a close look at the Friargate in Preston to see what is going on there! This could be the beginning of a new golden age of societal harmony in the U.S. We must investigate!

Check out some of my other recent work. Thanks for reading Bunchiesblog!
