“It seemed like a good idea at the time.”

How many disasters have started out that way? Hiroshima, sub-prime mortgages, moving in with your best friend?

Write me a story about something that seemed like a good idea at one point, but turned out to be a total catastrophe. Write about the idea, and/or the aftermath.

You have until the end of the month. GO.
