Storystorm Day 11: Idea 11

Still going strong with Storystorm… Relatively strong… I’m doing it, okay. 30 story ideas in 30 days.

I had my Day 11 idea, but I feel like it’s too didactic. I need to think about it some more.

The idea is very simple. It’s a little A Hungry Lion, or A Dwindling Assortment of Animals. It’s about a class of kids at recess and they’re splitting up for teams. And they split up like a game of Guess Who?

First, the vast majority of kids say no red heads on their team.

Then the majority of the remaining group says no glasses.

Those left say no lefties.

And so on and so on. And with every criteria, whoever doesn’t fall into it is all for it, until it’s their turn to fall.

Until finally there’s one kid left. And there’s no “one kid” in team.

The game is ruined because there is no team, because… no two people are exactly alike and trying to fill a team with only people the same as you leaves you alone and a loser?

Too didactic, I think. Yeah, I need to keep thinking.
