Some Girls Have All The Luck

Post by The PMS Avenger » Thu Jan 21, 2010 4:38 am

Some girls have all the luck.
Thankfully I’m one of them. My high cheekbones and blue eyes guaranteed success from birth. By 27 I had it all: infinity pool with cabana boy, perky DD’s (courtesy of husband number one), pink ragtop, a wardrobe and a half by Gucci.
Even when They first landed and humanity crumbled, I refused to cut my weekend in Aspen short.
But now, shackled and approaching what looks like a hot tub but smells like a stew, I can’t help but wonder if my luck is fading. Rumor is they have a particular taste for silicon.

Sorry, it's a little rough and longer than the twabbles I'm used to. Be gentle.

Awww, the twabble girl is all growed up... (Really growed up... I mean DD's O.O )

/pops eyes back in sockets.

I like it. It's got that PMS flair.

I'll leave the polishing to Miss Grimsley though, but keep it up. Your flair for twabbles should suit you well when hitting the punchline in a drabble.

:) Thaks for the support, guys.

I've yet to have my dreams haunted by Miss Grimsley. Is there some kind of ritual I have to do to summon her?

Good one! Not many people try first person stories around here; you pulled it off very well!

Yah, this is a a great frikkin drabble. Wouldn't it be interesting to see how long MTV reality shows last after a hostile alien conquest?

At first there'd be "Simple Life" type shows where Paris Hilton would do silly things, trying to adapt to life (and party!) under a complete holocaust of mankind-- simultaneously dealing with the antics of her "outrageously gay" roommate who is constantly getting her into trouble! Did he just say that?!? OMG!!! But you know what? Underneath it all, he has a heart of gold...

Then, next show, she'd take a stance. "People, wake up! These aliens, like, just want to take all of our planet's resources n' schtuff, like trees and internet, and ice, or whatever. Make a difference, totally! We need more sattlezite defense systems to dodge and prairie those grody photon libidos. Yah... Photons are hot...totally..."

Then, next show, entitled: "Desperate House-fertile-adult-females" would begin with dark, jagged camera footage and a few breathy gasps... "gfyf%4dvh....please...oh god...help....#yav6^6%$!....it's growing...it's growing inside me!....please god make it stop!"

Then, next show-- a food/cooking reality program called "Hell's Kitchen" -- is apparently nothing but static...
just like every other station....
mmm... nom nom



finally,
Zorlag repositions the tin foil rabbit ears on his TV set and curses the cable company one last time before slumping over in resignation. Cracking open another Silicon Light beer he mutters to himself in a strange alien tongue... "1 minute left in 4rth quarter and the Colts are down by 3....way to go Manning, you piece of sh*t."

Norm doesn't comment on many Drabbles, PMS. Take that as high praise.

I love the Drabble section of this forum, you guys are all crazy good. PMS is a heavy hitter for sure, but she already knows that, no need for praise. Plus she gets bonus points for being a flirt. teehee ;-)

That's when Manning throws 2 passed for 88 yards in 14 second for a TD. :lol:

Zorlag's buddy Xenthar calls him up and excitedly delivers the news. Zorlag's eyes bulge and a blanket of nausea covers his body. Keeling over, he vomits with utter abandon.

Sarlug hears the noise and rushes into the room, concerned for her husband.
"Gah! I'll never be able to get all that Paris Hilton out of the carpet," she thinks to herself, before suddenly realizing her mistake.

"Oh I'm OK honey, thanks for your concern..." Zorlag thinks back, his brain waves noticeably perturbed.

Nice Drabble. I may have made it so that to the woman in the story, "peril" didn't even come to mind. Her character would have been so privileged and herself so oblivious to the fact that this could be anything other than some new indulgence. But, I guess that's the way a poor-boy who went to High School in a wealthy town is supposed to see things.

Great job.
