A quick half-dozen!

for Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Quarter.


I like nothing more than a challenge and have completed many feats of do-or-die over the years, always with a degree of success that left my followers totally gobsmacked.

They said this was a deed too daring, but to the shock and horror of my friends  I took it on, undetered and with optimistic confidence.

I got off to a great start, it was a doddle and within minutes I’d completed a quarter of the task in hand.

Halfway through, I slowed a bit but anyone else would have been proud to have got that far. 

Between you and me, I did begin to struggle a little bit at the three-quarter mark, but I swept back my hair, mopped my sweating brow and exuberantly carried on.

Three, two, one mouthful to go then with a thunderous belch I triumphantly finished two bowls of phaal curry, two tubs of rice, six poppadoms and … wait for it … four whole naan breads!]

    Whoa! That’s quite the feast. I know for a fact that I wouldn’t be able to finish even a quarter of that!

    …and then went to lie down! Great fun, Keith, keeping us going wondering what this challenge was.

    Loved the surprise ending there. Bravo, I can get through a fair lot of delicious curry but tip my hat to four naan breads!

    Fun Six. Always good to come upon a story we Readers can sink our teeth into… (yes, I will proceed no further down this punny path).

      Please, don’t cease punning! Silliness is more than welcome here! Cheers Clark.

    Those naan sound tasty. I like how he completed those missions with “a degree of success”.

    Love it, Keith! Didn’t know where it was headed (yes, very bad pun!). Great pace. By the end, my smile turned to chuckle 😀
    btw, love that word “gobsmacked”!
