Blanket – Six Sentence Story

Greg told his three friends sitting with him in a booth for lunch that he had peeked out from under a cultural blanket of deception, a demonic snow job, that had covered him for decades. They listened politely amused by the stuff he came up with knowing he’d be over with his revelations shortly.

It’s not that he had been right often before. Generally he got things wrong especially when he offered health tips for losing weight. But he seemed pretty sure about what he had seen.

That they thought he was nuts only confirmed Greg’s suspicions, which he tactically kept to himself for the moment, that the cultural deception he experienced had disarmed them as well.


Denise offers the prompt word “blanket” to be used in this week’s Six Sentence Stories.

  1. “A demonic snowjob”: you need only look at the cultural division to see how effective it is under the name of tolerance. Good window into what Greg has to deal with in order to help his friends get out from under the snowjob.

  2. “That they thought he was nuts, only confirmed Gregg’s suspicions.” Sounds like he is wise to abstain from revealing too much more for the time being.
