6on6It is  time for Six on the Sixth

The writing prompt is brought to us by Adam Ickes.  You can read all about participating with up to ten six word stories at the link above.  This month’s theme words are:

Bend  Desire  Fortune  Old  King  End

Since this month I am in the midst of the annual Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I will present the six words above in six separate six word stories.  These stories will all contain a word beginning with the letter “E” (today’s letter) and all stay within my theme for the challenge, World War 2.  Does it sound impossible.  It did to me at the beginning.

    You captured some highlights in E. I was a very young child during the Eisenhower years. The Presidency. politics, and Eisenhower were all mysteries to me then and in many ways remain rather mysterious though now on a more ridiculous level.
