Any Dopers out there who want to write drabbles
As the saying goes, (exactly) 100 words isn't much. And if you write one, you can tell the next person what theme to write about, if you want.
I'll start it off with one about trigeminal neuralgia:
The thing is not there and yet the brain says it is, and says it with alacrity, eschewing all subtlety for the spangly jangle of the carnival barker. Phantom is no way to describe a sensation that wrenches you out of sleep in the cold dark to lurch around in search of anything, white or orange or blue, that will put an end to the gasping tears and the clutching at perfectly unsullied flesh distant from the huckster’s podium, screaming through his megaphone to the world at large: “Red alert! Red alert! Step right up and see the freak show!”
First taker, pick your own topic.
