As part of our Year of Writing, participants have the opportunity to enter a Daily Drabble contest throughout the month of February. This contest consists of writing a short drabble–100 words or less–based on our fill-in-the-blank prompt, which is posted daily on our Twitter.

The prompt for February 7th was:

Winner: Savitri Horrigan

“So there’s gonna be a big race tomorrow.”
“You mean the one where I beat you and you whine about it for the rest of the month?”
“No! The one where I beat you. And get first place.”
“Ha! Okay. Whatever you say, sis.”
“Oh yeah? You think you’re always gonna have that record? That was last year. Now you’re old and frail.”
“Oh please. I’m only two minutes older. I’m as young and spry as ever.”
“Bet you’re too slow to get your lunch back!”
“What…? Oh! For crying out loud…”

“You mean the Tortoise Grand Prix?”
