In 100 words or less, write a story using the words ride, post,
soulless, local, dehydrator, girdle. Your story may take on any form you wish. The only two rules are 1. you can't simply list the 6 words; you must actually craft them into something creative, and 2. you must use ALL six of them.
To which I say, "GAH!" You see, short fiction in all of its forms is the bane of my existence. I just cannot do it. Countless short story contests have proven this fact. I have no idea why writing less words would be harder than writing MORE words. But it IS. Why, Michelle, WHY do you hate me??? Okay. Whining done now. I'm going to give this a go. Just remember, though, what you are about to read cannot be unread. I make no apologies. You have been warned.
Once upon a time there was a camel named Humps who was tired of all the soulless locals that would ride on his back. Sitting atop his hump, their fat butts felt like bowling balls bouncing on his back and their legs were like the laces on a too-tight girdle. So, Humps devised a plan. He placed an ad in the Daily Post advertising a free screening of Harry Potter. After the people showed up, Humps locked the door trapping them inside. You see, it wasn't a movie theatre after all, but a giant dehydrator. From that day forth everyone on Hump's gift list received jerky every Christmas. The end.
So, yeah. I'm pretty speechless myself right now.
