It also means that I've been spending an inordinate amount of time at stores that I have a love/hate relationship with, like Home Depot, Bed Bath and Beyond, and...yes...IKEA.
While wandering the aisles the other day, lost once again in "Home Organizing" and unable to find the exit, I was struck as always by the product names. Where other than IKEA can you purchase a Godmorgan, and at such a reasonable price?
So I propose that today's post be more of a writing exercise. I'll provide the names of IKEA items, you provide a brief summary of what a book entitled that might be about. Here are some examples to get you started:
- FLORT: A hilarious coming of age story about a high school girl with an odd affliction, and how it impacts the boys she develops crushes on.
- MANSTAD: Based on the true story of a Crimean War prison break, and the men that history forgot.
- KORT: An eye-opening and heartrending look at the American judicial system, as viewed by today's hottest slam poets.
I've listed some options below to get you started, but feel free to choose any item from the IKEA product line for inspiration.
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. In fact, I'll send the best entry their very own Flort- how's that for incentive?
