As I feel it’s the lowest of the low, posting about toothpaste, I’ve decided to try and redeem myself by participating in Aheila’s Drabble Day Challenge.
Quoting from her website:
Here is how the drabble challenge works!
Read the prompt and find your angle.
Write a drabble (100 words story, give or take five words).
Post a direct link to your drabble in the comments (or, if you don’t have a blog, just go ahead and post your drabble in the comments).
My Drabble: Couch
It looked like a fluffy, breathing couch.
I stared at the dog, lying on its back, breathing deeply as it lay in the sun. I turned to the owner, trying not to show my worry.
“And… This is Tiny?” I queried, thinking back to the advertisement I had seen in the newspaper. It had read: Sitter needed for Tiny dog, owners going away on holiday.
This dog wasn’t Tiny. It was Huge. They should’ve called it Misnomer…
“Yes,” the owner said happily, “don’t worry, she’s an absolute sweetheart. Naturally.”
There was a ‘but’; there was always a ‘but’.
