Trifextra – Why I Write


Today’s Music: The Hooters – And We Danced

Trifecta has been going for a year! And in their delightully challenging way, they want to know (in 33 words, of course) why we write.
For those of you that haven’t figured me out yet, this should make it perfectly clear.
And again, apologies to Trifecta and all of the ridiculously talented writers who take part in their challenges!

Why I Write (for Trifecta)
I cannot speak for any one else – what drives them, what pushes them, for what they yearn.
I can only speak (or write) for myself.

Because Trifecta doesn’t accept submissions in interpretive dance.

I call this “Abscess of Reality” or “Where’s the Rice?!?”

  9. A gripping life

    I think this represents the pinnacle of all that Trifecta could ever have imagined for their writers. They can close shop now, and you, Guapo, can retire, I mean retire your dancing shoes – that’s not a suggestion, that’s a request. Haha!

    • Almost nailed, Grippy, but I think Trifecta would describe it as a zenith…
      And does that mean you’re cancelling our duet of “The Many Toes of Mikhail Baryshnikov?

  14. Were you trying to catch a drip with that pot? Love the dance moves – can you teach hubby? He was in a rock n roll band in the 60’s & has absolutely no rhythm.

    VLOG!! This is hilarious. If there were a way to accept interpretive dance, we would. And you would likely win.

  31. This one looks like that new wave orgy dance that has hit Texas and California in recent months, I think it is tagged as the Tin Pan ’69’ Technique, though strangely you seem to be doing this one fully clothed, which is a good thing seeing as your dancing partner has run off down the stairs hiding her nuggets out of camera shot πŸ™‚ Maybe next time πŸ™‚ lol

    Have a wicked rest of evening El Guapo πŸ™‚

  35. Vote 1 billion and 1. Vlog.

    To me it seems like an interpretive dance wherein you were cooking dinner and somehow realized you accidentally made mustard gas and are now frantically running it out of the house to save the day that you just screwed up. I imagine Chris Farley did this in a movie once too. Maybe you could add a pretty, floral, synchronized swimming cap in the mix.

    Dang good explanation of why you write.

  39. Trifecta doesn’t accept submissions in interpretive dance only because the right interpretive dance has yet to be submitted. Could you be that interpretive dancer, Guap? I think we both know the answer to that.

    And aren’t you afraid some internet weirdo is going to download your photo and incorporate it into his sad, twisted and sweaty imaginary life? Another internet weirdo, I mean, because between you and me, it happened for the first time about three minutes ago.

  40. Monsieur El Guapo, I’d like to add tmy voice o the Vlog chant, and add that the one piece lycra suit is a must. And the swimming cap. I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun reading a comment section! It must be very hard for you to leave for work some days πŸ™‚
