Quick Writing Prompt: Walk & Talk

On our walk in the park today, we passed by two people in the middle of a conversation. One said to the other, "I went to the app and found out he..."

We didn't hear the rest of her statement, but we considered turning around and following silently behind them until we got the scoop on what she discovered about him on the app. No, we didn't know these people, and it's not stalking unless you follow them home, silly. But sometimes you overhear something that catches your attention. It reminded us of Married at First Sight when some of the spouses have continued with their dating apps despite, hello, being married. We spent many steps later speculating other answers that might fit both the app and the discovery...


I went to the app and found out he... owns pet snakes and tarantulas. Swipe left.


I went to the app and found out he... spent three-hundred dollars on lingerie at Victoria's Secret, and my birthday's not until January.


I went to the app and found out he... was streaming on Twitch instead of working a shift at the sausage processing plant, like he said.


I went to the app and found out he... hasn't posted anything since last week. I'm worried something's happened to him.


Overhearing snips of people's conversations, like this one, can generate many story ideas.


Your turn. Finish our walker's sentence... I went to the app and found out he... Share your creative responses below.
