  • While I was deep in thought, starring at the blank screen of my cowbird story editor, musing over which of my day's experience is befitting enough to be my debut story on cowbird... The long hours spent on the road caused by the perennial traffic jam? The not-so-interesting encounter with a saucy receptionist? The hilarious chat with a motorcyclist who feels he can do a better job than the president? The aggressive salesman who squeezed 30 minutes out of me - though he initially requested for just 5 minutes?...
    Three bright flashes from my macbook startled me! I had completely forgotten that i had my webcam timer on countdown, and just like a peeping tom, it silently witness my cerebral musing over the blank screen, rudely interrupting my thoughts when it time ran out. There and then, i simply smiled. So much for a debut story.
