Responding to Denise’s Six Sentence story using the prompt word “STATION”.

” Good day, Mr. Carpenter, any projects planned for this week”.

“Why yes, Professor Fluff, I am building a ramp for my neighbor who has mobility issues, and what are your plans for the week”.

” I’m building a stairway to the stars, its been years in the planning, and I have about another 30 years to go before I am happy with the prototype”.

“Sounds interesting, Professor Fluff, have you considered the type and amount of material you will be using”.

” Most certainly, Mr. Carpenter, there are enormous pockets of hot air floating around these days, and I have been storing them to use as building blocks for the future”.

“Good for you, Professor Fluff, any time you need some practical advice, you know where to find me”.

  1. to quote a portion of an old joke about dreamers, “…and psychiatrists collect the rent.”

    Fun Six.
    Surely there is a line between practical and creative* but it seems to move constantly.

    *true creativity, not the novel re-assembling of parts.


  2. Led Zeppelin started playing in my head. I bet ol’ Fluffer was a fan. Everyone already beat me to the hot air jokes. I heard there’s enough to float the Mothership around the galaxy at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.


  3. PS I think I may have answered some more components of your question in my Modern Judaism VS Israelites post.


  4. An excellent and playful dialogue-only six. I like how Mr Carpenter was happy to go along with the Prof’s plans without criticism or ridicule, and even offered his help. Also, for some reason, I was reminded of the old cartoon series Dr Snuggles – about the eccentric inventor 🙂
