6 sentences

Yesterday, as a writing comrade and I commisserated over our collective  literary woes, she told me about Six Sentences, a flash fiction blog that was going to publish her own six-sentence masterpiece in the second issue of its Literary Review. She was bragging, and deservedly so, as each and every literary accomplishment needs to be heralded with a brass band, or something near enough to it so that writers can wake up from the seemingly everlasting dullness of the Daily Writing Life. Oh you think it’s all fun and games, don’t you? So I thought I’d herald her accomplishment with my own six-sentence tribute. Go ahead and count ’em. I’ll wait.
