Let's get right to our Six Sentence Sunday, shall we? This week we're in Chapter Thirty Three. Ellen, Doug and Stephanie have staged an intervention about DJ's drinking. DJ has just left in a nasty temper after promising to see a couselor.
Ellen sat down and buried her head in her hands. Doug stood and put a hand on her shoulder. She looked up. Their eyes met for a second. Both were remembering the day he was born, his first bicycle, his little leauge games.
Other less pleasant recollections were there too: the night Doug had told her about the way his father had destroyed his mother's spirit with his constant verbal and physical abuse; his fears of turning into the same kind of man; the night his mother lay dying in the hospital, pleading with him to forgive his long-dead father, still loving the bastard after everything he'd done to her.
Not a happy six this week. I hope to find some funny while I'm visiting my fellow Sixers today. Come along with me, we can laugh together.
