Five Random Constraints: 12/13/15 "Lefty"

About today's writing prompt genre: This is an exercise to make your brain work within a confined space. There will be a few constraints pressed upon your writing, some meant to help drive narrative, some meant to slow the process of the ever-flowing feed of words that stream through the mind. The purpose of this is to make you meditate on specific word choices and sentence structure and elements not necessarily the most important plot points or character traits which should allow the piece to unfold in a way that it would not have otherwise.

Five Random Constraints:

1) Five different words beginning with the letter K must be used.
2) No sentences longer than 10 words are allowed.
3) One character must have the nickname "Lefty".
4) A remote control must play an important role in your piece.
5) Two words that are eight letters must be used.
