“So what were they doing again?” asked the Sergeant.

“They were running around.”

“Running around. Naked, you say?”

“Yes, running around naked!”

“So, they didn’t have any clothes on then?”

“No, they didn’t have any fucking clothes on, they were naked!”

“Sergeant, we’ve finished checking the area and judging by the footprints in the garden there may be as many as six trespassers.”

“Based on the different shoe patterns?”

“No sir, no shoe prints, just bare feet prints.”

“So no shoes then?”

“Oh for fucking Christ! I told you they were naked!!!”

“Oh right, you did. We’ll look into it.”

Just discovered The Drabble ! That’s what I like to write, for years now with Friday Fictioneers and loved writing for Trifecta and Yeah Write. 100 Word Stories, that’s what I like.  So, I thought I’d submit my drabble to The Drabble.

This is one I wrote for another group based on the artwork above.  It is a take off on Salvador Dali’s famous work.

  1. This is hilarious! Good one Ted. 🙂

  2. That sorta looks like David Niven.

    1. He does in that photo. I think the tux and top hat helps. David was a dapper guy.

  3. This was great Ted! I think we’ve all ran into that Seargent at one point in our lives.

  4. Hi Ted. Great belly laugh in this story. Re other comments, I just loved David Niven when I was growing up. He was handsome and funny like you. X Kate
