Elephant Spoon Thieving – The Poplar Tree debuts in print format (online)…but it’s a start

Last week The Poplar Tree submitted a short story to The Summer of Bugged a WordPress blog that asks readers to eavesdrop on conversations and write a piece of literature based upon what is heard. The official rules are that the eavesdropping must take place on July 1st, (for more specific details click on this link: http://buggedblog.wordpress.com/2010/06/08/the-summer-of-bugged/) For me, nothing of interest filtered through the air on this day, but I continued to listen out on my commute to work and when I went to the Whetherspoons near Manchester Town Hall for tea (the one with the nice toilets). I heard some interesting and bizarre things, the creme de la creme of which I whipped together in a short story entitled ‘Elephant Spoon Thieving.’ The nice people at Bugged Blog have published the story on their website – it’s great to see my name in ‘print’ again after three  years. So thanks Bugged Blog. ‘Elephant Spoon Thieving’ can be read here: http://buggedblog.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/august-3rd.pdf it begins on page 2 of the PDF
