In each of our lives, there is the plot. The main through-line which gets us from point A (birth) to point Z (let's call it the finish line). Our respective plots take us through the major events and milestones, joys and catastrophes, jobs and marriages, mortgages and taxes. Our plots may be simple or complicated, tragic or comedic, Oscar-worthy or Ishtary. But our plots are often how we define ourselves. And to this we say, “pish-posh”.
Like any good film, and many not-so-good ones, we all have subplots. The incidental stuff. The day-to-day moments and points of questionable interest that go hurtling by. The "irrelevant" encounters like that time you got caught in a hailstorm and a golf ball sized chunk of hail landed on your glove and in a strange yet unmistakable way it kinda looked like a tiny head with a wreath on top of it and you shouted Hail Caesar and thought yourself quite clever except nobody was around and he melted and it's not the kind of thing you can really share after the fact.
These are the scenes which make our lives richer and more fun.
The plot is written. Write your subplot.
