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.  It is NOT MANDATORY that you use the prompt words. Be inspired by as many or as few as you see fit. Most of all, have fun! That being said, the following random words are this month’s prompts:

Plan   Giant   Pills   Hang   Peddle   Inch

Since it is April and I am in the middle of the April A to Z Challenge, I am going to incorporate the Six on the Sixth with my theme.  In this endeavor, please enjoy my six six word stories pulled from a 1970s time capsule.  Each story will include one of the words above and begin with a word that starts with the letter “E”, today’s A to Z Letter.

Are you looking for my A to Z Challenge posts for today?  No worries.  Just click “Home” from the menu above.

    Oh no! The dreaded floppy disk! Only the most unreliable form of memory next to the human kind.

    Good job on the stories. I’m impressed that you included it in the A to Z challenge.

    I’m really enjoying these blasts from the past. Elvis’s death was so sad. 😦

    Much of my 1970’s was hanging around with friends. They were good times, but a lot of it was also wasted time to a certain extent.
