For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I’m writing drabbles based on words I got from a random word generator. A drabble is a short piece of fiction of exactly 100 words.
The cast itched so much it was going to drive Lloyd mad. He glared at the blue plaster, fury bubbling inside him. His leg was propped on a footrest, placed so half the TV screen was obscured. This left him with little to do other than stew in his own misery.
His friend Danny shuffled into the room. “How are you feeling?” he asked.
“Wonderful,” Lloyd grumbled. “One performance and I’m out of the play. I can’t believe I fell off the stage.”
Danny grinned. “When I told you to break a leg, I didn’t think you’d take me literally.”
The whole family took turns being sick over the past week. I'm still nursing a cold, but that's far better than I had earlier in the week. Even Zoe has a cough, but it doesn't seem to be too bad. She's still sleeping well at night, so I'm grateful for that.
I'm looking forward to Easter. As long as the weather holds out and everyone is healthy enough, I plan to take the kids to a local Easter egg hunt. Last year they won a free book, which was cool. We'll also be having a family dinner. That's always an enjoyable experience.
I'm also celebrating new episodes of MST3K on Netflix! Yay!
What would you like to celebrate?
