It’s easy! Pick any six sentences from your writing, whether a work-in-progress or a published work, and post them to your blog on Sunday.
My six are, once again, from Sin City Hunter, the third book in the Susan Hunter Mystery series.
Last week, we left Mick and Darby in their underwear on either side of the hotel room bed. Susan wasn’t expecting Mick, her fiancé, to arrive for two more days. … Her parents are staying on the same floor of the hotel, and as they are returning to their room, they hear the shouting from Susan’s. My six are from a few moments later:
Mom was ogling back and forth between Mick and Darby. Her eyes were wide as she was clucking and saying, “Oh my. Oh my.”
I looked to my dad with misery oozing from my eyes and said, “Mom, Dad, this is Mick. Mick, these are my parents, Lilah and Earl.”
“Oh, for crying out loud,” Mick muttered in exasperation.
Anyone can join in. To participate and/or check out some other great sets of six, check out the site: http://www.sixsunday.com/

Thanks, Elin. I still get a kick out of this scene.
Oh, my, indeed! 😀
My real mother would cluck in a situation like this. I had to include her words, too. Thanks for stopping by, Sarah!

Paula!! Thank you so much. It’s taken a couple of hours to read all the sixes today. Time to read my favorite blogs now. I’ll be over soon!
The situation, not your writing.

Loved that the parents are in on the uncomfortable scene too LOL
Mom ends up with the giggles before its over. Thanks for stopping by, Sandra.
Sounds like a time you wish you could sink through the floor.
Hi Sue Ann. Your post surfaced today in my wordpress spam folder! Thank you for stopping by and reading my six. The parents ended up thinking it was hilarious, but the others wanted to sink through the floor – exactly right! 🙂
LOL! Perfect six! For anyone who hasn’t yet, read the previous six too!
Sounds like the sort of thing that would happen to me. That’s why I’m asking Santa for some new underwear for Christmas… : P
Santa’s sleigh is always full of underwear. I’m sure you’ll get just what you want! Thanks for stopping by. (P.S. – love your happy avatar!)
