The Short (3 words) and the Long (story) of it!


Just 3 words.  Give me 3 words and I’ll write one short story using them.  You can give me new words by leaving a comment here .  If there are no messages any given day I will provide my own or ask friends to step up.   I am not likely to be here on weekends, but one never knows.

Stories will be short, 300-1000 words who knows?   Help me out and give me 3 words!

NOTE: I have a teen who reads this as well, so any emails or comments not suitable for all will be scathingly denounced and then deleted with great gnashing of teeth.
