Short Snippet Saturday: The Die is Cast

So I know there's this writer thing called Six Sentence Sunday, where you post six lines from one of your works for people to read. There's even an official site for this little bit of promotional fun.  Well, I never tried it before, so I'm ready to give it a shot.

So rather than searching in vain for the required content, I'm starting my own tradition that I can carry out just here on my own web site.
