6 Words Make 7 Stories (Weekly Writing Challenge)

Once again, the Weekly Writing Challenge gets me to do things a little differently.  Most of it was a request for video content, and I’ll certainly give that a go if the muse whaps me upside the head.  For now, the 6-word story appealed to me more.  And you get 7 of them.  Why?  42 is a great number, that’s why.

“I know that you’re probably sore/ ‘Cause I didn’t write any more
I just didn’t get to complete it/ So that’s why I gotta repeat it” -Weird Al, “(This Song’s Just) Six Words Long”

**********

He flexed his biceps, she yawned.

dado_6The miserably wet cat yowls outside.

Children gasp as the page turns.

Man measures doorway and cabinet; curses.

The aliens land, look around, leave.

The camera started up without film.

He watched his ex-girlfriend drive away.

    the sixth story is quite spooky… :!

    • If it started up on its own, I’d call it spooky. But a camera rolling without film is a rather common staple of sitcoms. 😉 “What, you missed Cindy Lou’s recital? That’s okay, I got it on tape. Wait, there’s nothing in here…” What crazy adventures will those Sullivans get into next?

    42 is, indeed, great.:)

    • Hitchhiker’s Guide, LOST number, divisible by oodles of smaller numbers; what more could ya want? 🙂

      • rarasaur says:

        The legendary Jackie Robinson was #42, too! (See what I did there, bringing in a sports reference like I know what I’m talking about? 🙂 In fact, Jackie’s # is the only one I know, and only because of my association to Douglas Adams and mathematics, but hush, that can be our secret. 🙂 )

      • How four-two-itous that you knew that. (I know; horrible word-play. But I still stand behind it.)

      • rarasaur says:

        Always stand behind your word play– pun often, and pun bravely. 🙂
