The Lie

by Ethel

He looked right into my eyes and uttered a complete untruth. It slid from his lips like butter over hot pancakes. Trust flew out the window. I don't know if I will ever believe what he says again. I wonder if the lie was worth it. I think not.

6S

Ethel is hoping to recapture her creativity. It became misplaced while she was busy taking care of others. Now she is trying to take care of herself.

By "he" you must be referring to President Bush.

That was my first guess.

I think your creativity is still in pretty good working order, even if you think it's a bit rusty. :)

Sometimes they call me Kelley, sometimes Twizzle. Sometimes a lot worse. said...

Bush? Seems appropos, even though I think you were talking about my former fiancé. Thanks, Ethel, for your universal six sentences that allow us to project our own thoughts onto yours. Well done. :-) ej

I like your 6 Ethel. You say so much with very few words. Nicely crafted. Terah

hreqfrHe should have added some syrup. It would have been easier to swallow.

(It couldn't be Bush, because he never looks directly at us. His eyes are always squinting and shifting.)
