Today's warm-up is a writing prompt: "Pick a classic fairy tale, and set it in your modern-day hometown."
Lee shared a portion of his, in which one of the Three Little Pigs opts to live in a motel, rather than renting an apartment or buying a condo or a house. This led to an impromptu math exercise, during which we calculated how much he was spending at the motel, versus renting (or buying) a place. We decided that the pig was basically throwing his money away. Economics!
