Let’s Make a Decision

Let’s Make a Decision

Tuesday Scribes is a new weekly writing challenge. This week, the challenge is to write a ‘Drabble’, which I learned is a story consisting of exactly 100 words using a photo prompt of a line of doors. I had two thoughts when I saw it: too many decisions, and the old TV show, Let’s Make a Deal. The story below is not auto-biographical, but I imagine this is how it could be when the contestant made it to the Big Deal of the Day. Thanks to Mike Johnson for creating this challenge. I am sure it will be an ‘instant winner’.

I don’t like making decisions.

It started when I was a contestant on Let’s Make a Deal.

Behind door number one was a mahogany living room set. I imagined myself lounging on the sofa, reading a magazine.

Then, the stakes were raised.

Do I trade it for what is behind one of the other two doors?

What if it is a convertible? I imagined my hair flying in the wind.

What if it is dog food for life? I don’t even have a dog.

Millions of viewers anxiously wait for me to decide.

It’s time to cut to a commercial.


count = 100

  1. Your story made me smile Susan. I hope you enjoyed writing a ‘drabble’.
    Thanks for joining in with the first ‘Tuesday Scribes’ and I hope to see you at the next one.

  2. Let’s Make a Deal popped into my head too, upon seeing this picture! I just posted mine. I enjoyed the mulling over of the momentous decision. Some of those game shows seemed to thrive on Schadenfreude!
