Re: Mr. Mittens’ Transformation

Ha! Fun. I like it. I think it might be more effective if you added paragraph breaks. I know it's short, but it would help add 'beats' so that you read through at a certain pace. Like telling a joke - you can't shout it out in one breath. How about this? (I shortened a run-on sentence so you'd have ...

The devil visits my mother Fridays. She's a good woman - leader, churchgoer, altruist. Yet she looks forward to Friday.

Re: Diamond Cleaning

I like the set up for this. It's a nice little window I wouldn't mind seeing expand into something a little longer, with a little conflict and a chance to see him in action on one particular case.

Nice to see a new year themed Drabble. Compulsive headhunter? Is his resolution to give up headhunting or to switch to women's heads? I wasn't clear.

Re: The Signal

Three by air. I don't mind that they're unexpected - important part of humour. Alternative histories are always enjoyable. Now let's picture a Britain that includes Dinosaurs and mammoths amongst its war machines, perhaps a Germany with dragons and Canada with armies of Sasquatch.

Re: The Flipping Point

Also, great Drabble. I get the image of my own mother wandering into a room after I'd discovered her tube of mascara or a jar of peanut butter. I have a feeling Mother Nature's much less forgiving. And my bum still twinges even now.

Re: The Forecast calls for Death

Did you see the latest drabblecast has your drabble, read by moi, in it. One of my favorite readings so far. :) http://www.drabblecast.org/2014/12/07/drabblecast-344-doubleheader-xv/ Oh yes, did I forget to thank you? I've listened to it numerous times and even showed it off I liked it so much. Tha...

My son's goldfish kept committing suicide by jumping out of their tank.
At least, that's what his cat said.

In a universe where cats talk, suicidal goldfish seem perfectly believable. :)

Re: Your Move

Welcome to the Forums, Kate! I may have said that already. In any case, stellar drabble. I agree with Strawman, the last bit is an effective twabble, and though I like the opening, that bit stands out so well and says everything that came before it.

Re: The Forecast calls for Death

I'd read at some point that the Chinese and Japanese think the number 4 is unlucky because its name shi is in shini, which means death.

EDIT: Which, now that I click on the link I missed, is exactly what you were alluding to. Awesome.
