A guy walks into a bar and orders a drink from the bartender.
A timeless story line we all know. But it really doesn’t paint much of a picture does it. Talk about the ultimate iceberg theory. Now, if you’re like me you are probably thinking; who is the guy? What kind of bar? What kind of drink does he order?
What if I wrote ~
A silver haired gentleman in a dark pinstripe suite walked into a noisy biker bar and ordered a Pink Flamingo.
Sorry, I’ve been dying to use the words, “Pink Flamingo.” But the point is, you can picture this scene vividly.
How about ~
A pretty blond coed danced into the music filled bistro and orders a chocolate mocha latte from the tall dark barista.
Still based on the original line, but a completely different picture. The options are limited only by your imagination, and with a little practice, you can create your own story lines.
So the next time you hear, “A guy walks into a bar,” close your eyes and let your imagination run wild.
I’m waiting to see what happened to the older gentleman that ordered a, “Pink Flamingo,” in the biker bar. Gotta go, I feel another story developing…
