Drabble Day – Window

It’s drabble day… er… I mean Tuesday again!
This is the third Drabble Challenge I host (I really ought to start a page to organize this thing. *writes it on December’s To Do list* There!) and we are getting new participants each time. Yay!

A quick reminder of how it works!

  • Read the prompt and find your angle.
  • Write a drabble (100 words story) OR use my drabble as the opening for a longer story (don’t forget to give me credit!)
  • 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)

Today’s drabble prompt is : Window!
And here is my drabble!

                             

Window

It’s impossible to completely clean windows. Which is precisely what makes this task the perfect thing to procrastinate. I don’t feel like I’m truly procrastinating because cleaning windows isn’t relaxing. On the other hand, I still don’t attend to the responsibility I’m avoiding.
That’s actually what he blamed me for.
“I thought women were all about talking when something’s wrong. You’re so non-confrontational you’d rather clean up the fricking house.”
He wasn’t wrong. But then, he was so confrontational every detail fuelled a fight near the end.
I sighed, closed the cleaner and headed inside to sign the divorce papers.
