Blog Chain: Craft a Story

Ohhhh! Story blog chain time! Miss Awesomeness Michelle McLean came up with a fun activity to wrap up this year as we will usher in the next.

In 100 words or less, write a story using the words ride, post, soulless, local, dehydrator, girdle. Your story may take on any form you wish. The only two rules are 1. you can't simply list the 6 words; you must actually craft them into something creative, and 2. you must use ALL six of them.

Here's my story. 100 words. Make sure to read Sandra's post before mine and Kat's story afterward. Heck! Read everyone's stories as I add their links to the list!
