What's a drabble? It's simply a short story. Strictly they are exactly 100 words (excluding the title). Not 99, not 101. Ideally it has a punchline, or twist in the tail.

Here's Honeyguide's first drabble. This one's by Julie Durdin. Fancy a go? Email Chris your drabble - see contact us for how.


Where to go next year. So many choices. A birdwatching holiday? Flowers? A mixture?

“What about Africa?” I say.

My Mrs looks up from her knitting.

“It’s a long way, dear.”

“The bottom of the garden is a long way if you’ve lost your get up and go.”

“And have you?” she asks.

“Have I what?”

“Lost your get up and go?”


“Good. Then get up and go make me a cuppa.”

There’s a twinkle in her eye, so I don’t mind.

I drop the Honeyguide brochure in her lap.

I don’t need to fret, anyway. She always chooses.
