"Contemporary miracles"

Postby Zorg » Sat Aug 13, 2016 9:01 pm

One of my WIP's involves a subplot of what can best be described as 'Southern California miracles.' This is meant to be somewhat tongue-in-cheek and somewhat smart-alecky as SoCal is not generally known for it's piousness. With that in mind, there has to be a certain degree of narcissism or selfishness involved re:what people want. For example:

"I want two parking spaces for my car."
"I want a low body mass index."
"I want an expensive designer dress so I can look fantastic at my charity dinner for the homeless."

Things of that nature.

I'm kind of stuck on conjuring up some examples that would have a level of snark and irony pertaining to self-absorbed people.

Any suggestions?

I don't have any specific ideas for you, but I know California is lousy with social justice warriors so maybe you could try something with that.
There is no Miss Zarves. There is no nineteenth story. Sorry.
