Killing Four Prompts with One Sketch #Inktober #Inktober2018

20 Oct , 2018  

Could’ve been five, with the soap bottle.

I was so surprised to see diamonds dripping from the faucet, this morning, that I scorched the toast. Scorched toast is so brittle, so breakable; half of it crumbled into tiny bits that got washed into the drain, along with priceless diamond dust and a few good-sized chunks.

In the end, the drain backed up and the Dispose-All broke. I called a plumber. He fixed the sink, but it took the entire “clog” to pay the man.

He said, “Thanks,” and confided that it’ll go towards the very expensive engagement ring he was designing and the exotic, three-week honeymoon trip he was planning. He chuckled as he pocketed the rocks.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if, one day, his wife drops her precious diamond ring down their kitchen drain? On purpose?

Did I mention I’m a divorce attorney?

    Hey, Holly! What a clever trick! Nice story and so smart of you to get all those prompts in with just one sketch. That just puts more ideas into my head since I’ve stopped drawing for Inktober after the 5th (Have to admit, though, that with 16 prompts remaining, I’m not quite sure I could do that, since my story has to be way longer than that, of course! 😀 )

    • Fun to try, though! Maybe break it into 4x4s? They don’t even have to be consecutive. My husband asked me, this morning, if i were cheating on this a bit. I assured him it was not against any rules!
