A drabble is a story that is only 100 words long. A friend in college did a bunch of them, and I did a few about Abraham Lincoln in response. Then, "100 Words Or Les Nessman" came about, and a group of writers challenged themselves to write about a topic or write about Les Nessman. I recorded my stories, eventually creating a separate podcast feed and archive. Les Nessman came and went over the years, but mine kept going. I swore that I would write one a day until the day I die. Since I'm not dead, I'm still writing these things. On Sundays, I invite people to write their own stories on a posted theme and we call it The Weekly Challenge. To join in, either follow the instructions on the Weekly Challenge Topic post, or write me at isfullofcrap (at) gmail.com Finally, I perform the most recent stories live in Second Life on the Edloe sim at 5PM SLT (Pacific Time) on Wednesdays.

Peptide

Sometimes the dividing line isn't text or voice or big or small or human or furry or dead or alive or Euoropean or North American or even anchovies or pepperoni.  Sometimes it's friend or foe of Pep.  Be mindful of who you "like."

Enjoy.

ETA1:  "Feed" appears to be the new "sandbox."

ETA2:  I think I will self-quarantine to my own sandbox feed.  Crimes Against Convention 6 or 7 or something.

ETA3:  LOL  Someone clicked "cry."  Awwwwwww.

ETA4:  Oh wait, just checked and apparently my SLFeed would be CAC # 10.

ETA5:  It looks like the primary debate is who pissed in who's feed first.  I don't read SLF or the SLFeeds nearly enough to know.  Maybe some kind soul will come and tell us...or maybe we'll find something good on the telly.

ETA6:  Was that vitriolic?  I didn't even break a fingernail.
