THE WEEKLY SIX: It’s back, alarmingly early, and you’re excited. And if you never knew about it, you just didnt know why you were excited. I’m going to shut up now (in typing terms). Enjoy! (P.S. If you want to post your own six word story in the comments go for it.)


Shop lights blacken. Manikins vacate windows.

Spiders entering mouth. Awoken – screaming… EIGHT!!!

Petroleum soaked linoleum – for insurance purposes.

Life knocked. Death answered. Mailman error.

A family member lived in basement…

Shrek recoiled, horrified at mediogre reviews.
