My default

The six word challenge

The word list was:


My offering:

Napoleon Solo tried to carry off his role as a minister, pretending to be patient and tolerant while the world seemingly crashed around him. The noise from the kitchen was almost deafening as if the chefs were having a battle with pots and pans. He was anxious because he’d lost sight of his partner and chaos seemed to follow Illya.

Suddenly a waiter was in front of him and he served Napoleon his dessert. Napoleon frowned at the man’s thumb nearly sticking into his cake. Then he saw the microdot in the icing and a blue eye winked. Mission accomplished.

How did you do? :DD

A Just wondering The Friday Five for January 15, 2021

Sew what! Lots of folks these days are discovering they are crafty in ways they never imagined.

1. Are you crafty?
2. Do you own a sewing machine and what brand is it? If you don’t sew, do you own a glue gun?
3. What is the bane of your sewing/crafting existence? I mean, is it button holes, zippers, or something else?
4. When and how did you learn to sew or craft?
5. What do you consider your sewing/crafting opus or is it still a work in progress?
