5 minute prompt "Something Left at my Door" #freewrite

in #freewrite3 years ago (edited)


So I got a glass front door installed. Completely clear, that way I can see who's at the door when people call. Of course they can see me, but that's fine. If I don't want to talk to them I'll just keep watching TV and they'll get the message.

Anyways one day there's a loud bang at my door. As I approach I see something lying there - a bird? Did a bird fly into my door?

But no. It's a drone. All smashed up, because my door is made of special resistant glass.

Are drones trying to break into my house now? Or was it following a mandate to process the delivery directly to my phone? Do drones understand the notion of privacy?

Might as well check for a delivery. Sure enough, its got a package, so I pick it up and look at the label. Belgian waffles.


Written in five minutes from the writing prompt, "Something Left at my Door" as part of the #freewrite exercise. I also drew the image for this story.

Thanks to @marrianewest for creating and running this far out & groovy & really kinda special writing challenge.
