Welcome to December! December for the Burrow is a month we've managed to create a bit of a tradition. We have a website where we publish group projects, now and again. And each December, we do a sort of Advent Calendar. It isn't Advent in the religious sense of the word, as we don't stop at Christmas, but each day in December, we reveal a new Drabble related to images that have been chosen by the author. It's a fun little 'new surprise each day' venture and we'd like to share it with you. To get you in the mood, I've got a couple drabbles here. BUT... it's possible I'm insane. It IS delusional Thursday after all... so the drabbles on our Advent Calendar will assuredly be better and more thought out... (even mine).
Delirious Dream Drabble*
A girl is asleep, she's dreaming of pompons
A boy is asleep, he's dreaming of longjohns
It's all well and good, when a girl jumps and struts
And nothing goes wrong when a boy warms his butt
But when boys start pomponning and girls start longjohnning
The rest of us sure better get long-gone-goning
Because boys with their pompons, then act like sluts
And girls who try longjohns can't cover their butts**
Before you decide to ignore this as fluff
And think I've come up with it off of the cuff
I'm telling you now, I know about this stuff!
*Inspired by Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book
** inspired by an episode of trying to wear my husband's longjohns under my running pants. Boys have more belly. Girls have more butt. Nuff said.
Once upon a time, there were four score young blondes and brunettes, all between ages sixteen and nineteen and a half... strike that. The Burrow is a Bustling Band of Beautiful Babes who love books and erm... what's a writing word that starts with B? Damn. Tell them I have a PR background and they all want to put me to work. We write. We critique. We support. And now we're famous. Every last one of us has published alone, and as of December 1, 2015, we have officially published our Coffee Table book of images and accompanying drabbles. Erm.
(did I mention drabbles are usually fiction? We DO though, talk about this from time to time...)
So now don't you have a REALLY strong urge to go read a BETTER Drabble? Come on. I'm sure you do...
