Challenge Gallery 26: Switch

This week we had the unique opportunity to combine a Single Frame Story with a 100 Word Story. Crap’s podcast will be posted on Sunday, and his prompt was also “switch.” I’ve included the 100 word stories for those entries who posted them, and if I’ve missed any please let me know and I’ll come back and add them.

I often have trouble adding text to my Single Frame Stories. This double challenge was a great way to force me to use both. I suppose I could challenge myself each week to write a 100 Word Story that matches my Single Frame Story, and I may try that from time to time.

Do be sure to check out the podcast tomorrow, even if you didn’t submit a story. Most of the writers record their own stories and submit them. I did, so you’ll get to hear my lovely southern accent in person if you tune in. (sarcasm is implied) (This is Whiskey, by the way, and not Botgirl typing this. Botgirl’s accent is lovely too, though. No sarcasm implied.)

Before we get to the challenge gallery, the prompt for next week is “Climb.” Make of it what you will.

Switch vrs05 - "Proper Switch"

Proper Switch – “Picking a proper switch isn’t always easy.”
by Bridget Zuhal

“The bet was simple. If my team won, I decided on the date and what she’d wear, and if she won, she’d decide. Her team won, and I regret leaving the terms of the bet so open.
She said that we’d reverse roles tonight. She would hold the doors open, she’d pay for dinner, and she would wear the pants.
I went along with all of that, even wearing heels.
But I’m having trouble with her last request, how do I give up the one thing I’ve never shared?

I’ll cry when I hand her the keys to my Mustang.”
by Billy Dollinger

“I learned at a young age how to tell truths cloaked in humor. If you can make someone laugh, you can say anything out loud. Even the darkest words aren’t so heavy when they’re framed in sarcasm or jest. And if I ever went too far, said too much, opened my mouth just a little too wide and let some of the scary stuff spill out, well, I could always switch on a smile and say, “I was just joking.” No matter. It was just a joke.”
by Whiskey Monday


“Screech! The car lurched to a halt. The acorn I’d thrown with all my might hit the driver in his face. I dropped from the tree and ran home. A minute later he pounded on our door. My father answered and took the brunt of the driver’s rage. Next thing I knew, I was getting spanked for the first time in my life. It didn’t go well. I was so upset that a blood vessel burst in my eye. My father sprained his wrist. That was also the last time I was spanked. Good thing he didn’t use a switch.”
