Six Sentence Stories - Extension

My mind has taken so many turns trying to come up with a story for this Six Sentence Stories - Extension post. I felt like I was in the middle of one of those long curly extension cords people used to have on their phones before there were cordless phones and cell phones. Our host, Denise of Girlie on the Edge's Blog, gives us a new cue each and every week, for which we can be very grateful. Can you imagine what it would be like to have to write a story every week using the same prompt each time? Click the link and read the stories of the other bloggers. See if you can find the word extension in their stories.

Why did you decide to move? Did the fumes from the factory out your way finally get to you?

Not exactly, although those fumes certainly have deterred some from giving serious consideration to making this area home. Actually, as we have seen the new subdivisions invading our open space, we decided now was as good a time as any to make a break for it. The headlines in the paper have already mentioned an impending sewer extension and that is causing a big stink in more ways than one. 

Hmm. . .I hear there is a big dairy farm a few miles away from your new home.


  1. Seems like no way out from the smells of progress. Good six good use of the cue.

  2. At least your Six doesn't stink. Another fun and unique response to the prompt.

  3. When infrastructure starts to be extended, you know the crowding is coming. Excellent story!

  4. funny you should mention that (the smell of farms)... a few years ago a farm about two miles away tried a new form of fertilizer and did not follow directions (he piled it up outside for later use... not supposed to)... the smell spread for miles (literally)!
    Fortunately he was considerate enough of his neighbors (and the rest of town) to rectify the problem.
    Good Six (and not one mention of Death standing outside your house waiting for the internet signal to do*)

    *there has been an interesting convergence in uses of the prompt word this week

    1. Knowing if you are going to be down wind or upwind, etc. from the source of the stink is helpful too.
      Nope, no mention of death this time around here at might site.

  5. Stinky six and strongly wonderful.
