A drug cured my cough permanently.

    There is no drug for stupidity.

    • Jo said,

      Just answering the challenge. It’s not addressed to you. πŸ™‚ I actually like your blog. You’re very creative. I mean I like the creative part of it, but not the politics. But that’s another story…

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Not much to like about politics.

        My grandfather used to say “All politicians are crooks”.

        And the older I get, the more I realize he’s right.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      History is proof of that.

      There is no drug for stupidity.

  2. Shweta Suresh said,

    Oh that’s an excellent take. Thanks for joining in. Welcome to 6WSP 😊

  3. Suma Reddy said,

    That’s truly a brilliant thought Chrish. Picture perfect πŸ‘Œ

  4. George F. said,

    Check your FB timeline, homepage. Tombstone posted there.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thank you, George. πŸ™‚

      I’ll use that picture for a future chapter involving gravestones , vampires and Dr. Victor Frankenstein.

      I was starting to run out of time to post for the 6-Word Story Challenge deadline so I searched for R..I.P. tombstone pics on Facebook itself and found this one.

      I certainly hope our friend Hyperion’s neighbourhood post office opens up soon so he can mail me his old iPhone and old tablet (which are more recent and less obsolete than the ones I’m using).

      About 15 minutes ago, I almost had a heart attack because my tablet seemed to stop working.

      Fortunately it started up again.

      Otherwise it would be the end of my WP blog posts.

      Since I can’t seem to post to WP using my iPhone but I can using my tablet.

    I really like your take! Creative.
    Does this mean you’re going to participate in the challenges more often?

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      I may.

      As soon as I saw Shweta’s challenge using the word Drug, that was the phrase that popped immediately into my mind and as I told you, I then counted the words in that phrase and it turned out to be six.

      • Marlapaige said,

        Yes. If you are interested, there are a few more daily word prompts that you can do in whatever style you want. Actually, you might be able to occasionally work them into your chapters at night. Have a good night!

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        You have a good night as well.

      • Marlapaige said,

        Well now it’s barely evening here. But thank you.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        You’re welcome.

    This is a fun one. And the picture is perfect. I cannot stop laughing on this.
