  17. Reblogged this on Wonderwall and commented:
    Using weekly prompt EXCUSES
    Snowed in. Still want shopping delivered.
    This story is in response to the Facebook posts about not get shopping delivered. I have commented how would they feel, if after delivering the food shop the driver had an accident and died?
    Some may use snow as excuse not to work. Others think those cancelling or closing are make excuses due to the snow.
    If you fancy, writing own six word story from prompt EXCUSES, follow the link below.
