17. wet sheets, fire, corvids, milk
The above Winter Scavenger Hunt prompts led to this:
Silly Sally, on her way to town, realized she had left wet sheets in the washing machine. So, she went back home, and hung them on the line. Then, she headed back out. About halfway to town, Sally saw a house on fire. Being a civic-minded soul, she pulled a fire box that was across the street. Several crows, that had been watching the house, from a perch atop a nearby tree, began cawing and flying about, excitedly. Sally went over and helped console two small children of the family that had to flee the house. One of the neighbours brought some milk and Sally mixed it with chocolate syrup. The kids were thus comforted, somewhat, by the kindness of a stranger. The crows, perhaps feeling left out, just cawed and flapped their wings more fervently.
Silly Sally eventually got to town, so we have this little tale!
