The famous story of a man that steals another mans lawn ordament and send pics of it standing in fron of monuments, and places from other countries back to owner has always been interesting…now suppose you weren’t held back by time, space, lack of cash, and you had superpowers, what are some spins you’d put on this? How do you think this story would play out in a SCI FI novel? Or what’s the most interesting way for this to happen in your opinion?
For one reason or another, I’ve been obbsessed trying to think of variations of this for the last two days. I haven’t come up with anything too interesting:
An online friend mentioned a microscopic lawn gnome. Not sure how this came up, but after thinking about it for a while, it would strike me as funny if I heard about a millionair who possed the worlds smallest lawn gnome…having it stolen. And then to have pictures sent to him of the gnome stnading in fron of other famous small stuff. I think the entire world would love the irony in that.
Some recent commercials featured a gnome that was stolen and who later fell in love with a miny statue of liberty. Very clever, I thought. This got me thinking about how a professional novel writer would go about writing letters from the gnomes point of view back to the owner. Some pretty good stories could be written.
I wouldn’t mind seeing a mad scientist transform a lawn ordament into a robot capable of travelling the world by itself and sending his previous owner pictures. Would make for an interesting story told right.
Intergalactic and time travelling gnomes would be neat too. Any other interesting spins people can think of?
