I hope you had an amazing weekend and are ready for your Drabble Challenge of the week. This one might be a little bit more evil than usual. 😉
How it 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).
- In the post on your blog, make sure to link back to this post.
Today’s prompt is: Slip! But what I hope – really really hope – is that some of you will take the extra challenge for bonus non-existent points and make your slip Freudian.
Told you this would be a cruel one.
Truth be told, I’ve been meaning to post this prompt ever since a friend had a hilarious ‘was it a Freudian slip?’ moment. He was doing research for a project.
“How did ‘torturing children’ make it to the top hundred favorite hobbies?” He said.
I too was in shock. “A lot of the surveyed people have a sick sense of humor?” On this attempted explanation, I returned to my writing and minutes passed before he spoke again.
“Oh! Forget what I said. That was ‘tutoring children’.”
We laughed for at least five minutes. Poor guy, his toddler had been keeping him and his wife awake at night for the past week.
Not that he would ever hurt his child! (I want to make sure you get that and don’t start any silly rumors!)
This story isn’t actually my drabble. That would be cheating. I’ll post my drabble when I come back from work!
Can’t wait to read you guys!
