(This post is actually from November 29, 2012, but I keep getting spam comments on it, so I'm experimenting with a different way to post it, for posterity.)
Friday Fictioneers is an opportunity to join a community of writers in the challenge of creating a 100-word story from a single picture.* I just love the color in this week's photo prompt. And that woman with the shopping bag--she had to be in the story, in that sanitized place, all pretty and open and safe. A passing comment from someone today gave me the kernel of the story, and here we go!
