Aheila’s Drabble Day Challenge – Change

Today, I’m using the drabble to tell you what I did with my day:


Change comes in many forms, this time in the same of a 31 litre fish tank.

I’ve always loved fish for some reason, getting endless pleasure from watching them. I got my first fish when I was about ten years old, though then my mother took care of it. For my eighteenth birthday a friend gave me a small golden fantail and from there, I was never truly without them. To date, they always lived in glass cookie jars but today, they got an upgrade:

A 31 litre conventional fish tank. Complete with rock, filter and new neighbours.

I’m a happy woman.



Aheila’s Drabble Day – Couch

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’.


The End.
