Six Sentence Stories

Prompt: bookmark
A new book, a new bookmark.

7:00 a.m. – a new week ~ good intentions.
The weekend, amid current record heatwave I faced a few frustrations.
Black carpenter ants taking a leisurely stroll across my carpet became
a valid reason to leave the comforts of my air-conditioned apartment
and drive with windows down (car A/C broken) to purchase ant baits
at the local hardware store.
Home again and time to relax I accessed my cell phone and typed
my first WP reply which flew into outer space with an accidental tap
somewhere on the cell phone, bummer message erased.
This morn ‘chuckle, chuckle’ I finished the task on the laptop moved
on to submit a chosen prompt ‘bookmark‘ and surprise was when
I double checked and found I needed to write ‘five’ more sentences.

  1. Yeah ants are so persistent! Hope the bait traps work.
    Some of these challenges are pretty similar, like 6 word story and 6 sentence story. and 6 minute story … what’s up with everything being 6 anyway? haha ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Barb,
      The traps worked a few years ago.
      Maintenance should spray the foundation of the building to avoid pesky problems.
      Yes, so true about similarities. I erred and wrote down 6-word story. Luckily, I caught my mistake.
      No idea about why that chosen number. If correct people dislike seeing it in sequence (supposed bad luck).

  2. I was thinking the same thing when I put those three challenge numbers in a row! eek! We haven’t had a big problem with ants this year, but some summers are really bad. We get a lot of those larger red ants.
