I'm a little late with this week's drabble, but we're getting ready to hit the road — well, the skies — again. Remember, a drabble is a very short story of exactly 100 words. Feel free to join in and write your own 100 word stories on Fridays, and tag them with “friday drabble”. Link to them in the comments here, or on Twitter with the hashtag #fridaydrabble.
