For the love of words, where is my drabble? The sun has nearly set on this Friday, and yet I have not posted my drabble. You noticed, right?
Okay kids, happy Drabble Day: a short work of fiction, exactly 100 words in length.
As is the case whenever there is a “Wednesday’s What is It?”, I talk about the mystery photo before I share the drabble.
Let’s be honest; the picture I shared with you this week was no major mystery. I think all but three of you guessed the picture correctly. Well done.
The first person to identify the mystery photo correctly was my friend, Deanne. Congrats, D! I’m glad you are playing the game.
The second person who guessed the photo correctly was trying to redeem herself for not knowing the picture the previous week. Well, consider yourself redeemed, Leonore.
For the few of you that were stumped, I’ve hidden the answer in the drabble. Enjoy!
She stood up and started walking inside. “I’m going to check on dinner.”
The boys played in the sandbox, using their Tonka trucks to move the sand.
The girls kept attention on their tea party with various dolls and animals.
Mom opened the window, “Dinner is ready! Clean up and come inside, please!”
“Yay!” The kids yelled in unison, knowing pizza was on the menu tonight.
The boys grabbed their trucks and put them in the toy box.
The girls gathered the cups and saucers, teapot, and their tea-time guests to bring back into the house.
The chair stood alone.

You constantly amaze me with your drabbles. How do you fit a short story in exactly 100 words, and fit in the answer to the mystery photo? Talent!!
Aw Susan, thank you. This week was a hard one for me. Incorporating a chair … that’s tough. I am glad you liked it. As I told Lina, I was inspired by the song, “The Farmer in the Dell”. Rather than the cheese standing alone, it was the chair that stood alone.
It seemed so familiar, like I should know, but I was clueless this week. Lovely drabble, as always.
Thank you, CK. As I’ve said before – all the pictures seem obvious to me, because I am the one taking the picture. It is hard to crop the photo to the point that the picture becomes a mystery. The drabble this week was tough; I am glad you liked it.
Thank you, Patti.
I was clueless as to what it was and assumed it might be an elliptical machine 🙂 MJ
I am glad you were clueless, MJ, because it means the challenge was a success. Thank you for playing.
Ah, that’s a great drabble. Lonely chair.
Thank you, Linda. Working a chair into the drabble was tough. I was inspired by the song, “The Farmer in the dell.”
Woop! An Aussie won the Masters…they had 3 chances with 3 contenders…and G finally got one!
Woo hoo! Wait. I want folks to NOT get it. *sigh* Well, I celebrate the other winners. (wink)
Very nicely done, Ms. D! I feel kind of sorry for the chair, though…
left all alone AND without any pizza?! That’s a pretty rough day!
I felt sorry for the chair, too, Robert. The Mom didn’t even say “thanks for the support” or anything. Poor chair.
