It's always what you don't know

Post by tibbi » Sat Sep 27, 2014 5:43 am

Thought I'd try this drabbling thing. 100 words exactly.

-----------------------

The alien spaceships had traveled dozens of lightyears to our little blue planet. They thought we were such easy pickings. All their research showed we lacked any weapons capable of besting them. Their shield technology alone made all our conventional missiles useless. Throwing nukes at them would only destroy our own people.

As seemingly countless ships hovered over all the major cities of Earth, I sent this message to the leader of the armada. “You've made a mistake. How huge a mistake you ask?” I pulled out my trusty concertina. “Time to find out.”

They turned, and ran. I smiled.

---------------------------------------
And thus ends my $.02. :)

You could've tried reading your drabble to them! Just kidding, was that your first drabble? Nice job
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.

I thought if you kept it up for over 4 hours, you needed to consult a physician immediately.
