Six on the Sixth – August 2014

Once a month, Adam serves up a tapas table of teeny-tiny-fiction prompts. The delights for August are:

Sink, Chair, Automobile, Anger, Duck, Black

Different writers use the prompt words in different ways. Some create poems, some write 6 themed stories, others choose one prompt for multiple takes etc etc – but I prefer to write 6 seperate six-worders, one for each prompt. This month I’ve gone for stand alone stories:

 

Sink:

Brushing teeth together is marital bliss.

 

Chair:

She changed the jobtitle from Chairman.

 

Automobile:

First car finally expires. Tears shed.

 

Anger:

Count to ten, suppress the rage.

 

Duck:

Didn’t remain seated on the rollercoaster…

 

Black:

Infinite desert sky, countless stars shine.

    Nice work, Ade! I especially like the first one. It’s the little things that make for a great marriage.

    Thanks for stopping by…

    Yes I know about hanging on to old autos. We’ve only ever had one new till it’s ‘retirement’. – usually we buy used – my latest is about twenty years old. Still has roll up windows!

      Twenty years is quite an age! But I bet you give each one a loving home

        It’s not an antique or anything – it’s just a family car.
        Hubby’s is a tad old too. But at least he has some things that are automatic..(mirror adjustments, windows, a decent radio….more than just the transmission.

        A good many cars in the US are not stick shift. Though I know quite a few folks happy with that type of driving.

        As the saying goes; “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” Our cars might not be gas/electric combos with electronics up the hill and back, but they get us where we want to go. For me it’s mostly errands around town. 🙂

    Automobile
    Although – I bought it used & with just over 64k – my first car was left back home when I got married. My dad drove it to well over 200k. The apt we moved to only allowed for one parking space & hubby had the newer “more dependable” car.

Over to you...
