Nankin, You're It!

John tagged me for a drabble. What is it? It's a story containing exactly 100 words, which is surprisingly short. My drabble is in the post below. Now I'm passing the drabble baton to


"Mom, come get me,” he slurs. “I had a wreck."

"Slow down," I tell myself, but my foot is heavy on the pedal.

His second DWI. I wonder how much bail will be and imagine driving to Huntsville. He doesn’t look good in orange.

I see him--blood on his shirt. Sitting next to him on the railing as they tow his car, I take his hand and we wait--for him to be arrested.

Suddenly, the police wave us on.

We can go? No breathalyzer? Not even a ticket?

His car is totaled, but I've NEVER felt more euphoric.
