Chance meeting

longhair.jpgPrint out the three lists below: profession, trait and meeting. Cut them up and put them in three separate piles. Draw two each from the first two pairing a trait with a profession. (The more contrasting the better.) Feel free to use a profession as a trait. (It could be a hobby.) Then draw a slip from the third pile. That's how they meet. Write what ensues.
