Six Sentence Stories




Ernie loves nothing more than to stand in a crowded street pointing skyward, and as everybody stops and gazes up at nothing at all, walk away!

Another of his favourite games is to glue a coin to the pavement and sit on a nearby bench; it’s worth ten pence to sit and watch people’s frustrated attempts at picking it up.

He is a bit naughty sometimes, like when he walks up to someone who is eating sweets from a packet, says ‘look over there’ then quickly pinch one!

Only the other day he went into a public toilet, lifted a loo seat, stretched some cling film over the bowl, lowered it again and walked away.

Yesterday as he walked down a crowded street he saw several people pointing skyward. He stopped and looked up, not noticing that everyone was dashing off, and got bonked on the head by an out-of-control drone!

  1. Haha. Ernie's poetic justice or at least karma. I worked with a jokester - April 1 was her favorite day of the year. She always put a rubberband around the sink squirter hose so that as soon as one turned on the faucet, they were (I was) doused with a shower. She also did some nasty bathroom things that I won't go into but it did involve chocolate donuts. To this day I wonder if she ever got her poetic justice.

  2. What a perfect ending to this tale, Keith! You made me laugh this morning, poetic justice indeed! I used to love to do things like this on the elevator where I worked, staring up at a corner, or mentioning things like "Isn't this the one that got stuck yesterday?" It certainly breaks up the boredom of everyone staring at their feet in a confined space. :-)

  9. ha! hoist on his own petard! (from my readings, that expression is one of the most mis-applied Shakespeare lines anywhere*)
    Liked the Six because the joker got played.

    *I believe I have continued the tradition with my own misuse (at least of the literal interpretation)
