Speaking of smoking chimneys, I met the nicest chimney sweeps last fall when we had the wood stove serviced at our cabin. These guys even wore stove pipe hats. It got me wondering, are chimney sweeps really as lucky as lucky can be? One of the guys was whistling to himself, as cheery as Dick Van Dyke playing Bert the Chimney Sweep.
Write a story about soot and luck, and what happens when they meet.
