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’.
Here is today’s Photo:
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.
