Steam Escaping!


ok, everyone out there in lj land, its time for some inspirational work. thanks to timaeus for sparking the fire here with the pic, and coworker julie for prodding me to follow through.
Take this image, and gimme a story:

What is this guy's deal, how did he end up there for that photo? Where is there for that matter?
My entry is as follows:

"...and after the 3rd eightball that weekend, i found myself in a field, 30 years older, in someone else's clothes."

Julie writes in:
""will you marry me?" sent to a picture bride in some whatever-stan on the other side of the world"

Be as short or prolific as LJ can allow - but i want some INSPIRED WORK folks - I know you are capable of it!
