Drabble Day – Snow

Let me tell you something before we move on to the drabble part; here in Quebec, we are going to have a hell of a winter. Last year was a flimsy one. We weren’t even sure we would have a a white Christmas. But this year, we’re going to pay for the past mild weather. I already had to use my shovel twice. I don’t like it.
Somehow, I find it twice as difficult to wake up during winter and I keep yawning all day long. *sighs* That’s it for the rant.

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)

Today’s drabble prompt is : Snow!

Here’s my drabble!


I kicked off the snowman’s head. My little sister raised it barely three feet high. I should have helped her. I hated snow. And now it dared to be perfect and cold when everything was ugly and desperate for warmth.
When my sister tugged my sleeve, I should have come out to see her oeuvre. I yelled and sent her looking for a friend four blocks over. She was an angel in the snow now.
“You and me both,” I said to the snowman who lost its cold head.
I should have listened to my psychiatrist; anger was a problem.
