I've started a new exercise where, every morning, I take the Merriam-Webster Word Of The Day and use it to inspire a one page scene. My goal is to try and pack as much of a story into a single page as possible; let's see how I do, eh?
Festoon: "A decorative chain or strip hanging between two points."
"With or without lice?"
"Why would I ever want lice?"
"Well, some of 'em have diseases in 'em that bite you and make you see inneresting sights. Some people want that."
