Phobia

Your challenge this weekend is to give us 33 words about anything you want.  Your piece must include at least one hyphenated compound modifier.  Remember that the hyphen will join your two words together to create one, so you will have a bit more wiggle room with your word count and language.  You are free to use more than one hyphenated modifier in your post, but we ask that you be careful not to sacrifice readability in the process.


The over-sized, flesh-eating spider curled behind him, oozing from the wound in its middle.  All in a days work, the agent thought, putting on his sunglasses.  I wonder what Jenny made for dinner...




I've been watching Fringe, can you tell?

  1. I'm confused about whether a bad guy has a spider in his wound or the agent wounded the spider. But I get the gist of your story. Job done. Leave work behind and go home to the wife. Probably just my confusion. Potential high creepy factor :-D

  3. All I need to know is if the spider is dead, or just wounded. And I love the line about wanting to know what dinner will be.

  4. Well, now I'm thinking about how a spider would eat flesh, but at least this one won't be doing any more damage. What IS for dinner? I'm hungry!

  6. It takes a man with a special kind of stomach to see an oozing dead spider, and in the next thought, wonder what's for dinner :)

  15. It's definitely a giant spider wounded by the agent. Though I think the spider in the wound is much creepier. I feel like I need to shower now..
