What is a drabble? CMRPrindle, one of my creative besties online, explained to me that a ‘drabble’ is a very short story used to stretch your brain. The official definition of a drabble is exactly 100 words as defined by Wikipedia. I learned that only after I created this extremely short story of 250 words. So what I wrote is a drabble on steroids who took a bath in Root-tone. So forgive me, drabble purists, and thank you, my friend, for the idea of the word “lion”. Also, this paragraph is 100 words; does that count as a drabble, too?
This is a short story inspired (yet again) by my Malaysian connection Ricky, who speculated on a storyline where someone can read people’s innermost fantasies through touch. He was also flying at the time and wondered if he would strike up a connection with the people sitting next to him. I combined the two into this short excerpt.
