A blogger I follow (in the blogosphere sense, not the literal – waiting on his doorstep – sense), writes a drabble on Fridays. What is a Drabble? Well, quoting Stevil, “a drabble is a very short story of exactly 100 words.” And, with every drabble Steve posts, he invites others to join in and write his/her own. He also suggests to tag the post with ‘Friday Drabble” and use the hashtag #fridaydrabble on Twitter.
I’ve always been impressed with Steve’s drabbles. First, the guy is a great writer. Second, I am amazed how someone can tell a full story with only 100 words. Because I am talkative, the ability to drabble (yes, I just made it a verb) seems inconceivable to me.
Then I took part in BlogDramadey’s BlogFestvius, which limited the posts to 144 words. Lo and behold, I was able to keep each post at 144 words. Since I was able to meet that challenge, I decided to give this drabble thing a try.
“I am so comfortable. This is awesome.” He said.
She moves a bit and says, “I love it when the house is quiet.”
“Me, too, but I think we should get up.”
“Why?” She asks. “It’s not dinner time yet.”
“No, but I’d rather get up by choice.”
“Well, you can get up.” She says, while stretching. “I am as snug as a bug in a rug.”
He lifts his head. “Was that the door?”
“Go check, if it will make you feel better. I’m staying.”
“Puppies!” The two legged creature says. “What are you guys doing on the bed?”
