It‚Äôs Six Sentence Story Thursday Link Up!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. If you’ve landed on this page by accident, hurray! Kismet is working in your favor as it’s opening day for the Six Sentence Story Blog Hop. What is this phenomenon, Six Sentence Stories, spreading the interweb? It is a weekly writing challenge (most enjoyable), it is a method/tool to enhance writing skill (who can’t use a little boost) and perhaps most importantly, it’s an opportunity to meet new writers; take advantage of new portals of discovery. Who hasn’t followed the breadcrumbs after clicking on a link to someone’s story and then... linking out to writers’ comments at their websites. Infinite loop (but in a good way) this internet ūüėÄ Hope you’ll join in the fun. Read you soon!

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
Come back here and link your post…
Spread the word and put in a good one to your fellow writers¬†ūüôā

And not only am I the MC, I’m also a Six Sentence Story contributor (don’t ask me how Sy Sperling got into my head tonight ūüėÄ) Remember – the doors stay open until next Tuesday so there’s plenty of time to link up a Six.

Sunday‚Äôs Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s Word Prompt for the newest, upcoming edition of Six Sentence Stories! Was talking with a fellow writer recently who reminded me that everything is a story. Not that the story always or easily reveals itself, but it is there. So, whether it takes form as a story, a poem or a missive, or as a snippet from a work in progress or soon to be work in progress, it’s all good. I hope you’ll share a story this coming Thursday and join in for the adventure that is storytelling ūüôā Enjoy your week, my friends. Good writing and I’ll see you soon!

CUE WORD:  BRUSH

Lunchbox Lenny and the Edge of Chaos

His name is Lunchbox Lenny.¬† Folks around here just call him Lunchbox mostly, although¬†the under 40 crowd is inclined to call him Mr. Lunchbox.¬† One part dervish, one part imp, Lunchbox would give even Wile E. Coyote a run for his money.¬†¬† It is perhaps no small coincidence* that the character of Wile E.¬†(Coyote) “was based¬†on Mark Twain‘s book Roughing It,[3] in which Twain described the coyote as “a long, slim, sick and sorry-looking skeleton” that is “a living, breathing allegory of Want. He is always hungry.”¬† That’s our Lunchbox – free rangin’, unadulterated, on the loose, untethered – always hungry as scotts are wont to be.¬†

So you think the cartoon is cute? Let me¬†ask you¬†this: “how cute” is a baby lion ripping open the belly of a gazelle peacefully grazing upon the plain?¬† My point exactly.¬† Kids, what we have here is a¬†fully matured scott.¬† To quote Merriam W.:¬† Matured = “having attained a final or desired state“, not meaning the opposite of immature.¬†

I have referenced this term (scott) before just as I have referenced myself as being a clark.¬† So as not to exclude that most¬†socially conscious, or is that conscious of the social¬†(collective) group, here’s a nod to rogers.¬† These 3 – clarks, scotts and rogers¬†are the 3 ways in which a person views the world¬†according to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts¬†and rogers)

,..”No, Lenny! Sit down. Now! I’m still writing…You wanted me to write something about you didn’t you?… I said you can’t…What? Are you stupid or something?! You can’t do that. Why? Because sensible people just don’t that’s why. You know expletives won’t¬†work with me.¬†Yes, I am aware that¬†Gregory Campbell was the best teacher you ever had…

My apologies.¬† Damned if I did not let myself¬†get distracted¬†again.¬† Yes, yes it is¬†a true statement that the scotts¬†of the werld demand, no make that “command” attention.¬† They do not stomp their feet in the¬†manner of a roger but¬†rather¬†scotts¬†will jump up and down and talk real fast (literally sometimes and figuratively).¬†¬†They are the ¬†most certain of the 3.¬† Certain of themselves, their opinions, hell they just know how it’s all supposed to be.

Enough for now with the¬†theory of clarks, scotts¬†and rogers,¬†and back to my friend Lunchbox.¬† What kind of testimonial¬†can I give him?¬† Hm…haven’t seen¬†him in many a year.¬† Truth be told it’s been a coupla¬†decades at least.¬† Let’s see…¬†the ole¬†brain projector is running footage of playing basketball¬†with LB only¬†he wasn’t ever on my team (I’ll check with the archivists to confirm).¬† Very competitive, he’s full of energy;¬†loud.¬† Show me a scott¬†and I’ll show you one¬†loud mf’er¬†if you know what I’m sayin’.¬†¬†¬†Scoundrel = scott.¬†(yes,¬†this also applies to female scotts) ¬†He likes to read; enjoys¬†travel and¬†prefers warmer climates over cold. ¬†Lunchbox Lenny likes sports (oh, mentioned that?), music of the variety I would label “hillbillyish” but you can add¬†pseudo ethnic and classic rock to the list¬†.¬†¬†

I would be remiss if I did not utilize the word “carnal”¬† to describe LB or any scott for that matter.¬†¬†He¬†loves that word because of it’s implications.¬† C-A-R-N-A-L as per our Ms. Merriam W. =¬†“b: relating to or given to crude bodily pleasures and appetites”.¬†¬†¬† clarks!¬† Lock up your children.¬†¬†rogers!¬† Hide.¬†¬†And lock¬†up your children!
