Time for a Chick Pic

Cozy readers—and especially Chicks on the Case readers—are some of the most creative folks on the planet so we’re asking you to play Chick Pic with us! Give us a couple of sentences … where is this place? What’s the back story? Include a victim, murderer, nosy neighbor, or even innocent suspect. The more ridiculous the better! Each comment can build on the next until we have a fully-fleshed out story. Or if you don’t like the direction the comment thread is going, start a new one. Writing is all about rewriting, after all. Let’s have some wacky creative fun!

(Extra points if you can name who took the pic … but remember, the points don’t mean anything—ha!)

(Mimi’s original long dress costume got ripped in the dryer.) They are *completely* unaware (or are they?) that under their red gingham checked table is a special set of wares. But when the meanest gym teacher in their school approaches…

  3. Mia and Mimi just *pretend* that they’re unaware of the secret stash of weapons. In fact, Mia always carries a little something special disguised under the long fabric of her dress. Not only do they give mean teachers their comeuppance but bullying classmates as well.

  4. You’d never suspect from those innocent looking faces that they are secretly plotting. Be ware. The entire neighborhood is about to be blackmailed by these two supposedly innocent girls.

  5. Mimi suddenly realized Mia talked way too much about the flagstones. While Mia bent to pull up her constantly baggy knee socks, Mimi reached up under the maxi dress her mom sewed, into the hidden compartment Mimi had begged for, and pulled out a ……

      1. That shone the same deep pink as her waistband ribbon. Using the magic lamp, she slowly lifted the edge of the biggest paving stone, realizing it was actually a disguised cover for stairs leading down below the house.
