Hi Drabble folks... I’ve just discovered you, during a random net wandering, seemingly at a time things are about to get going... hurrah..! What I’ve read so far is all rather good... so it seems like a bit of a giggle to have a go. Here’s my first (using Word to count the 100 words). Is it the done thing to just post one Drabble every now & then... or a couple, should inspiration strike?

Pleasantries to you all, in the meantime... Wil.

“I find this painting rather confusing” grunted Mrs Ug, attempting to follow its narrative, across the walls of their family cave.
“What’s so challenging about the essential concept?” whined her husband. “It’s a simple enough premise. Boy meets girl. To impress girl, boy slays mammoth. It’s a classic crowd-pleaser.”
“But what’s that funny bulbous stick-thing he’s holding?” asked Mrs Ug, perplexedly.
“I call it an ‘axe’,” replied Ug, proudly. “I’ve imagined a conventional club... but with a sharp stone at one end... to make Mammoth-killing more effective.”
“That’s why it’s so terrible!” his wife exclaimed. “I bleedin’ hate science-fiction stories!”
"I soddin' hate being misquoted..!" (Winston Churchill)
