Six Sentence Story -the Wakefield Doctrine-

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)

20170104_163801

Here we are already, Wednesday warm-up for Thursday’s Six Sentence Story. Our host, zoe, has for reasons that are probably best left un-expressed, has given us the word ‘CHEESY’

Our mission is to make-up, construct, devise or otherwise throw together a story comprised of exactly six sentences. Easy, right? sure…

The beautiful young girl stopped scrubbing the sink and looked into the mirror, the large common room behind her so perfectly reflected in the sparkling glass that she could read the names on the back of the chairs arranged around a long wooden dinner table, Doc, Grumpy, Sneezy, Bashful, on the opposite side, four chairs faced away, un-readable and a single chair at the head of the table, ‘nearest the kitchen so I don’t have so far to walk,’ the girl laughed to the dark-haired beauty in the mirror. She stepped back and surveyed the now spotless bathroom with it’s seven little sinks along a vanity that rose only to her mid-thigh; seeing one tiny dried explanation point of shaving cream, she looked down at the expanse of her billowing dress, grabbed a triangle of relatively clean fabric and rubbed the glass until it was a spotless as…. “as spotless as newly fallen snow” and the empty little house rang with girlish laughter.

Hearing the whisper of the grandfather clock, the grey and ancient-feathered owl bound to it’s perch by a spell, announcing the time on the half hour and the hour, it’s only pleasure was the exception it was allowed, (by a somewhat passion-impaired old wizard who was completely out of his league when negotiating the deal for the timepiece with a certain young girl who missed the finer things in life she’d enjoyed growing up in a castle), to offer commentary on the ordinal hours, the current announcement being,”Five o’clock and Seven Dwarfs will be home soon and they’re bringing an Eighth, predictably they neglected to tell anyone his name… Whoooo are the dumbest workers in the forest?”

Running into her bedroom, the girl threw off her cleaning product stained dress, opened  the closet door and stared at the rows of, blue bodiced, puffy red and blue striped sleeves, billowing yellow skirt with a high white collar dresses, she stopped riffling through the clothes as she suddenly remembered that she’d that she’d forgotten to lock (and bolt and wedge-shut) her door.

“I’m new here blue eyes and I gotta tell you, them other dwarfs need to get their eyes examined, hey when they call us little people you better believe that the only thing they’re talking about is our height, you wanna know my name, beautiful?”

Snow White, still in her petticoats and bloomers, turned and with a smile that an impartial observer would not be blamed for saying had a clear resemblance to a certain head of the local royal family, looked down with a smile and said, “You must be Cheesy”

Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three...but mostly one

  1. LOL. 👍 And that’s all I gots right now.
    Put me down as FRIST.

  2. What a delightful out-take of a famous fairytale! :-)

  3. Just J says:

    Such a clever take on the “cheesy” prompt. I always knew there had to be that one guy no one was talking about.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      lol…. yeah, was having some fun with the reference to the extra security on the door

  4. phyllis says:

    very cute

  5. messymimi says:

    Heeheehee! Cheesy, and cheeky, too!

  6. UP says:

    There is some very good wordsmithing in this one. Nicely done.

  7. oldegg says:

    I am glad somebody has thought of Snow White’s needs as well.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      yeah… what the hell, you know! poor girls’ been trapped in a fairy tale existence for longer than I’ve been alive. not fair!

  8. Deborah Lee says:

    Laughing! Thanks for the new twist on an old tale.

  9. Ahhh yes, this was a great read–maybe a little scary, but enjoyable!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      funny about how those creepy undertones sneak in. seriously, not my intent, at least in the original idea (for the Six)

  10. valj2750 says:

    Good one, Clark. I’m laughing out loud. There is a creepiness (and cheesiness) to the whole Snow White tale. Like how you used the line “freshly fallen snow”. In the adult animation version the clock is going to be my favorite.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      yeah… I kinda was thinking Edward (from Almira) with a little more of the droll side coming out

  11. luckyjc007 says:

    LOL’s. I enjoyed your rendition of the tale! 😁

  12. zoe says:

    Then there was slimey, ballsy, dorky, and suicideee!!!

  13. Hmmm…I wonder if there are more dwarfs hanging out in the woods about to make themselves known. Your story was a very unique take on our cue. Very creative thinking!

      Thank you Pat, lol I hesitate to think what the fairy tales might have left out!
