Six Sentence Sunday

June 3, 2012

Here are six sentences from my current WIP. Best friends Dean and Kat are talking about relationships.

“Guys are for more than just sex, you know.”

“Are they?” Kat asked, her eyes wide with feigned innocence. “I can’t image what else I would do with one.”

“Oh, I don’t know, we can be handy to have around, we can lift heavy things, get the tops off most jarred products, kill spiders.” He was rapidly running out of examples and he tried to think of things his dad did that made his mother happy. “Yard work.”

Be sure to stop by the OFFICIAL SITE for all of this week’s snippets!

    If he can kill spiders, he can kill roaches and thus would be kept at all costs! Great six.

    Ok Lisa, how can we think that guys are for more than sex when you give us a picture like that. He can till my garden any time.

  18. June 3, 2012 12:20 pm

    Oh, yes. Must keep the menfolk around for their yard work ability. I hate mowing the lawn.

    LOL! Yard work! Love it! Great six 🙂

  29. June 3, 2012 2:43 pm

    Fantastic humor in this snippet, Lisa! Yes, occasional yard work is a spiff, definitely. I love how he’s at such a loss for words! Of course it’s because he doesn’t want to name the real reason he wants to be there! 😉

  30. June 3, 2012 3:17 pm

    So much to love her the least of all that his dad made his mom happy, so sweet!

  31. June 3, 2012 4:12 pm

    Great – he can come and live with me any time!

  35. June 4, 2012 7:47 am

    Great six. You have told me a lot about both of them in a very short time. And he is just adorable. 🙂

  36. June 4, 2012 10:07 pm

    I made my DH get out of bed one morning to kill a spider in the bath tub – that skill should not be underestimated. LOL. Love their conversation. Cute six. 🙂

  37. June 14, 2012 10:16 pm
