A silly little story …

for Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Distraction (I’ve been a bit naughty and changed it to Distracted!).




I was wandering along thinking about this that and the other, when I was distracted by an angel. 

How dare you laugh, and no, I did not imagine her!

As I was saying before you rudely interrupted me, this angel was smiling at me and …. what do you mean ‘how do you know she was an angel? 

Because she had a sticker on her back saying ‘made in heaven’, duuuh!  Of course she was a bloody angel, she had wings, that’s how I know! 

Anyway, I waved to her and …. yes, I had been to the pub … oh I give up.

    No one believes your story! That’s too sad. I’m sure you saw a real angel 😇

    I love the tone of this. You have a real knack for raising a smile!

      Thank you Nima, I’m really pleased! Actually, there’s a pub near here called The Angels Rest – or is it The Anglers Rest?

    So sorry you didn’t have another couple of sentences. I’d have liked to hear what the angel said to you. 😉

    Well, Keith, you don’t have to convince me. I believe in angels… and faeries!

    Hi Keith – bad boy … I’m surprised other ‘interesting’ things didn’t happen – don’t ask me what – I’d be put into ‘coventry’ for many a day!! – cheers Hilary

    Maybe she was just watching over you on your way home from the pub, not that you needed watching, but you never know. Cute SSS.

    I like the evidence that she was an angel because of the sticker, “Made in Heaven”, on her back.

    Was she a late ’50’s/ early ’60’s angel, like they have in songs from that era.? They can be interesting?

      Possibly her mother was, but she was clutching a mobile phone – a typical teenangel!

    Delightful Six!

    Keith! Love this. While I’m most late to the Six this week, your Six was well worth the (not) wait and brightened my Saturday 🙂

    “Because she had a sticker on her back saying ‘made in heaven’, duuuh! Of course she was a bloody angel, she had wings, that’s how I know!”,
    lol That line is epic, as the kids would say.

      Thanks so much, Denise. I wasn’t sure readers would realise I was being sarcastic with that line, so that’s sick dude – as the kids would say!

    Good one, Keith. That’s one halo of a Six!
    No convincing needed here luckily, as fully signed-up to the believing in angels and fairies and UFOs club
    (meetings held once a month, at pub) 😁

    Well, this is definitely silly, but it’s not naughty, in my opinion, to use a different form of the word. I enjoyed your six.
