    it doesnt have to be anything particularly eventful...it can me one of the most mundane things ever, what you have to do is creat and articulate and put the reader into the position of whatever is happening at the time... :D

    Monday - paper napkin salesman(!) calls on restauraNT in remote part of scotland (not covered by mobile phone netwrok) and leeaves samples. During that evening, after hours, a local writes, in drunken state, the initials of everyone he's ever met who've done something horrid to him (expand on his his stoiries) and how many years ago it was/money owed (for 'a number'), onto 'a number' of the napkins.
    Tuesday - restaurant fully booked with investment bankers. Restaurant forgets to put napkins in the washing machine - must use paper napkins.
    The rest of the plot is how to make excuses for each investment banker leaving the table in order to drive to find network coverage because each of the investors believes that the 'three intials' and 'numbers' (three initials relate to the stock ticker code - and the number could be target price) has beeen given by the banker sat opposite by way of a favour owed to him/her (expand..)
    Sorry for type-o's...rushed it!
