You're Killing Me

Post by manintheshack » Thu Sep 09, 2010 6:29 pm

"Stop it!" she cries out, giggling, but I won't stop. She likes to be tickled – always has. It’s our thing. I tickled her on our first date and I’ve tickled her every day since. Each time, she laughs and I laugh and we laugh together and then stop and all I can think about is the next time I’m able to gently needle my fingertips into her ribs.

No more waiting.

“Stop it!” she screams, her eyes swollen with tears, her fingernails scratching feebly across my flesh. But I can’t stop. I like to tickle – always have. It’s my thing.

Ooof. As someone who is really ticklish and hates it, this--this is a very familiar nightmare. Well-written.

Yeeks, it's getting ever weirder in this neighborhood. We usually offer a hearty welcome to the immigrant hordes on their first post at Drabble Island. So, manintheshack, welcome aboard.

That said, we might give some thought to a visa program, just in case Mexicans start writing the drabbles that Americans are unwilling to perform.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I've pretty much become a Drabblecast obsessor overnight after spending the entire weekend painting and decorating to the wonderful stories provided therein. Hopefully, I'll be sticking around!

Sounds like a potential megabeast to me.

Sorry I missed the greeting phase before the inevitable DC-ADD thread derailment occurred.

Sorry guys, you're way off the mark. My actual inspiration for the piece is far more sinister:

Wow. I didn't even know there was such a thing...
