Wow: we’ve been tagged, and we’re IT! We are stepping up to the #firstlinefriday challenge. Here are the rules. Friday I will:

  1. Create a post on my blog with the title #FirstLineFriday, hashtag and all.
  2. Explain the rules like I’m doing now.
  3. Post the first one or two lines of a possible story, a work-in-progress, or a completed or published work.
  4. Ask my readers for feedback, and then encourage them to try #FirstLineFriday on their own blogs (tagging is encouraged but not necessary).

So: here we go. This week our series of #sixwordstories are about Father’s Day. Enjoy. Call your Daddy.

That grin, that cigar, that father.
