Need a writing prompt

I have decided that I can get writing prompts from listening to the police radio. This morning I heard this dispatch, "The man claims there is a strange man in his bed, and there is a gun on the floor beside the bed."

That is a story waiting to be written, isn't it?

The next dispatch was, "Cancel the call, we have the 87 year old female in custody."
Helllloooo?

That would be a great source for writing prompts! Ha. You should do NaNoWriMo with one of them.

Probably he suffers from dementia, and it's his wife...

Not sure how to explain the gun, however.

LOL Proof that life is stranger than fiction. Who would make that up?

I'm with Lisa. That has to be stranger than anything most writers would make up!

Ha! I'm with Lisa and Tammy - every time I think of something a little "outrageous" I think... who would believe that?!
