Write a first-person story in which you use the first-person pronoun (I or me or my) only two times - but keep the I somehow important to the narrative you're constructing.  The point of this exercise is to imagine a narrator who is less interested in himself than in what he is observing.  Make sure that the reader is not surprised that this is a first-person narrative.
