Doodling Doesn’t Pay

It’s time to post another Six Sentence Story, so here’s my response to this week’s prompt word BOOK. Six Sentence Stories is a writing prompt posted by GIRLIEONTHEEDGE; participants link their tales through Inlinkz

Doodling Doesn’t Pay

I’ll admit that I’ve always been a scribbler and doodler. Though I do most of my scribbling in a sketchbook especially for that purpose, any sudoku or puzzle book — or even scrap paper — that happens to be near at hand when the urge hits me gets some kind of decoration. With all these bits of doodling through the years, I’ve become quite a mediocre artist.

However, my dear husband wasn’t happy with me at the breakfast table this morning when, wanting to try out my newest gel pan, I grabbed and scribbled on a slip of paper lying on the table. I thought it was the perfect size but I really should have paid more attention, as it turned out to be a cheque he received from a customer and was going to deposit in our account today. Artwork or not, he says he can’t deposit it looking like this.

  1. Oops! 😂
    Could have been worse Christine. Instead of drawing artistic doodles on it you might have dropped your toast, oozing butter side down on it. Me, I’d rather have the doodles, lol

    Hope you’ll come over and link up your Six 🙂

    1. I know one woman who complained that her husband was always doodling on their cereal boxes. I’m actually more likely to lose a cheque than doodle on it — but in fiction you can do anything. 🙂 Thanks for reading & commenting.
