Trifextra 37: On 3 – 1…2…

This weekend we are challenging you to write 33 of your own words to build upon the following:
On the count of three…
You can choose to include those words if you want, but they do not count toward the 33 words of your own.


On the count of three…

I’ll open my eyes; those 19 year old supermodels (twins!) will still be in bed, but my wife won’t be standing at the doorway, with the gun.

-Me, 96 years old.


Inspired by the Irish- attributed adage/toast

I got away with it a little longer 😉
