The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 237: The Ninth Day…
Author's Notes: My ninth drabble for Challenge 303 – Twelve Days at tw100, and Part 9 of ‘The Twelve Days of Riftmas’

For anyone interested, this is my 202nd drabble for 2013. I made it past 200, YAY!

Summary: It’s Christmas, and the Rift is apparently in a giving mood...

Warnings: Random insanity.

On the ninth day of Christmas, Torchwood got a call about a disturbance in Asda; an entire checkout queue was doing the cancan.

Owen took one look and covered his eyes, saying something about being scarred for life.

Ianto had to agree. None of the ladies was under seventy; nobody needed to see that many pairs of bloomers on display!

Jack persuaded the dancers to form a conga line behind him and danced them into the staff area, while Tosh found the device responsible and switched it off.

All nine ladies agreed they hadn’t had so much fun in years.
