Most of the time my micro-story inspiration comes from interesting pins on Pinterest that I encounter and save for the right time. In this week’s micro-story, I was given a challenge – what could I say about the alien-like humongous mushroom growing in our driveway? Game on!
I first had to ask my Dad for some help. As a mushroom expert he advised that this was likely some kind of puffball mushroom, which stores up its spores and then, in a volcanic-like explosion, jettisons them out. This idea seemed very disturbing to me. NASA searches for alien life across the Universe, yet it seems, to me, to be closer than we think.
My Dad is also the King of Puns, so the title of this blog is just for him! 🙂
