Six Sentence Sunday: Opening of Blueberry Truth

For today's Six Sentence Sunday, I'd like to share the opening of Blueberry Truth:

Johnny Mathis has sung “Chances Are” four times now, and chances are not awfully good Mac will be home anytime soon. I try to be sympathetic; Mac is a pediatric cardiologist. His high-pressure job has irregular hours, and he’s stood me up before, though always with good reason. Mac wouldn’t be Mac if he didn’t go the extra mile for his patients. But despite all his good intentions, I’m about ready to throttle him.
He’s not the only one who’s got a tough job.

  1. Wonder what the narrator's job is. Great snippet.

  2. I guess the narrator's been stood up one too many times? Great hook, great six.

  3. Dry humor and an intriguing last line -- I'm hooked.

  4. I really like these six lines. Strong voice, packs a lot of info. Nicely done.

  5. Sounds like Mac's gonna be in trouble, PDQ! Great six!
