Can You Tell A Story In…

It’s Thursday and your new five-word challenge is here. This week, I want to know what you think about SPIDERS. So can you tell a story in five words, using the word SPIDERS in it somewhere?

Here are your COAT tales from last week:


This paint needs another coat.

The wall, coated with butterflies.

Her coat ripped to shreds.

So cold with no coat.

Coat for sale, worn once.

Kim Smyth:

Love my fuzzy “pimp” coat!

I hate cold, need coats!!

Sweaters aren’t warm enough; coats!!

A note of explanation: Year before last I bought a cheap, green, fuzzy (not furry) peacoat. When I walked outside to sit with my boys, I announced, “This coat makes me feel like a pimp!” And they burst into laughter like that was the funniest thing they ever heard me say. LOL


Get your coat. You’ve pulled!

Another coat of paint needed.

Definitely woolly coat weather, now.

Coat my lashes with mascara.

“Congratulations.” Voice coated with envy.

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

Coat costs lots, now lost.

One coat or two? (varnish).

Her coat was mock mink!

She gave me her coat.

Use coat… Cover up quick!

Bark is a trees coat?

You coat it in custard…

Paul Mastaglio:

Cold? Snuggle inside your coat.

Your coat of many colours.

A fine coat of arms.


My coat’s a secrets’ hoarder!

Charles Norman:

A real coat of arms?

Kim Blades Writing:

Coats are mostly winter ware.

Coats make me feel warm.

Coats are human tea cozies.

Natural fibre coats are nicer.

Hoodies are not real coats.

    Spiders live in our house.
    The cat chases after spiders.
    Sometimes the spiders get caught.

    Cheers Paul 😀

  2. Spiders do fly you know!
    My cat leaves spiders legs
    I spied a big spider
    Halloween, sugar coated spider webs
    Swallowed spider! Feeling very webby….
    Spiders from Mars? Very odd

    Spidery lashes framed her eyes.
    I’m not a spider fan.
    Dew glistens on spider webs.

    Be nice to spiders.
    Spiders eat bugs, keep them!

    Ziggy Stardust, Spiders from Mars. 😉 Like spiders on my spine. Flash! Space spiders eat Washington!

  6. Spiders have too many legs
    Crawling secretly on uncovered skin
    Under your clothes and within
    Places they should never be
    Or see. In the dark
    To park. And wait. Late
    Into the night. All eight
    Of those legs. Suddenly awake
    You scream. At the unseen.
    Delivering an octopod love letter
    A mosquito would be better.

    Charlotte – cutest spider of all.
    She swallowed a spider… Aargh!
    Useful tip; spiders hate peppermint.
    I was saved by Spider- Man.

    (True story, though maybe ‘saved’ is a bit of an exaggeration… Wanting to escape getting on a ride at Universal studios, in my panic, I exited through a ‘no re-entry door, and found myself looking down over the backlot. Now in even more of a panic, as I came down the stairs, who should be trotting past but Spiderman! I shall be forever grateful to my masked hero who pointed me in the right direction back to civilisation).
