You get your picture taken in a photo booth, but when the image develops, the face isn’t yours.
Weirdly, in response to an entirely different prompt (“I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record”), one of the other writers produced this exact story. Well, almost—her character was getting her picture taken at the DMV.
Still, I couldn’t very well use the prompt after hearing her story. It would have looked like I pilfered her idea, and, besides, what would she have written about next?
Anyway, I still think it’s a good story starter. Let me know what comes of it.
