Drabble – a short work of fiction of around one hundred words in length, not necessarily including the title. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author’s ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in a confined space. (Wikipedia def.)
To me, Drabble also sounds like a wet word; mixing that thought with the idea of ‘confined space’ conjured up this 100 word story in my mind.
A Family Break
The whole family trapped inside a caravan for a week, rain stopped play. We could’ve gone to Spain but chose to holiday in a metal box in England. Get away from it all. No TV, no WiFi, tired of watching drops run down the windows we resorted to ‘bored’ games. We wore the letters off the scrabble tiles, every one a blank which made the game pointless; completed the jigsaw both face up and face down; Monopoly lasted three days and ended in a row. Nobody won. We’ll never do this again. Dad said next year we’ll go camping instead.
Remember those English caravan holidays now?
