RE: I need a word...

Thanks, Michael, Paula, Ignite, M. K. Clinton (Any relation to Bill?), David, Ray, and Cecilia.

It's a tough one, anyway here's the drabble...

      Her First Time

"Is this your first time, Mrs Smith?"
"Yes, it's my first time."
"Don't worry, everything will be fine."
"It's alright for you, you're a man."
"Relax, deep breaths... and push."
"Urrrrggghh."
"And again."
"Urrrrggghh."
"Good, more deep breaths now."
"I feel faint."
"Just relax, nearly there."
"And puuussshh."
"Urrrrggghh."
"Okay, not long now."
"I don't think I can go on, it's too much."
"Keep breathing, come on now, deeeep breaths."
"Urrrrggghh."
The car's engine burst into life.
"Thanks for the push, Mrs Smith, I'll just about get to work on time."

RE: I need a word...

Scribbler,
Good decision, that is really funny! I'd like to read more. To answer your question, no relation. I can say that when he was the president, I was president of my children's school's P.T.A (Parent-Teacher Assoc.) so we were both President Clinton at the same time. I got a lot of mileage out of that; "Speaking at tonight's school meeting: Pres. Clinton!"

RE: I need a word...

I will never forget the screaming and noise form one woman when I was having my second. Had it been my first baby I would have been petrified, as she was screeching and screaming the whole place down. All the midwife kept saying to me was she is going to take so much longer to have that baby because she is wasting too much effort screaming. I was really lucky, I was only in labour for two hours!

Excellent! And most unexpected - you know, the hardest part of reading drabbles is not looking at the last line. I cover the bottom of the screen with my hand now as I'm so ill-disciplined!

You could try doing it indirectly: She cried out again and I winced. I gripped her hand a little tighter and she let forth again. Not so much as scream as a gasp for air. "Help," she said. "Oh, for heaven's sake help me."

Scary - it's a good job you were having your second.

Thank you, that's a good idea about covering the screen - I'll have to try that myself.

Interesting suggestion, Todd, but a little sophisticated for my humble drabble.

Good idea, Ignite. Like you, I'm expecting the last line of a drabble to be the punchline, so it can be hard not to let the eyes drift. Which makes me think, maybe I'll write one where the first line is the punchline... that'd be a challenge and it would definitely throw a few people!

PS Nice dribble, Scribble.
