Fridays are the days I post one or two “drabble“, the 100-word stories that test your ability to convey an entire story idea in an extremely brief format.  Feel free to join in and write your own 100 word stories on Fridays, and tag them with “friday drabble”.  Link to them in the comments and/or on Twitter with the hashtag #fridaydrabble.

“What I meant is- Um, I mean- Well, I was just saying-” he stammered.

“You want to watch what you say next, honey.  You’re already in the danger zone.  What comes out of your mouth is going to seal your fate.”

John forced himself to meet her angry stare. “Uh, I’m really sorry?”

“You’re STILL sleeping on the couch tonight.”
