Trifextra – Say…


Today’s Music: Berlin – No More Words

Another weekend, another Trifextra challenge. This weekend, it’s pretty straightforward.
As they…say:
For the weekend prompt we’re asking for exactly 33 words of dialogue.

So in true “Guapo can’t take these things seriously” fashion, lets dive right in, shall we?
Dialog
“Hey, are you going to enter this weeks Trifecta?”
“Thinking about it.”
“So what will you write about?”
“I don’t know, but I have to be concise.”
“Why?”
“Because I only have 33– “

And I thank you.

Check out the Trifecta for all the other entries from some truly talented writers!

  1. Yeah, that’s pretty much my attitude about doing a prompt. I’m almost always unmotivated unless something pops in my head. Which is usually not too serious or is downright silly. Well cooked! 🙂

  2. True “Guapo can’t take these things seriously” fashion = “Guapo underestimates his writing skill” fashion.

  4. 33 words seems like such a HUGE task until you’re halfway through a sentence and you have to stop. 🙂

  5. When you’re dealing with a word limit, there is no such thing as cheating.
    “No More Words” is a great song–much better than the Top Gun song they’re famous for.
    Given what I know about you, though, I’m surprised you haven’t featured (or at least I haven’t seen) anything by Billy and the Boingers. “Middle of the road, man it’s stank, let’s run over Lionel Richie with a tank.”

    • Smak, if you tell me you have the actual 45 album of Billy and the Boingers, I’ll be amazed and slightly awed.
      My girl got me the collected Bloom County, and they’re as good as I remember.
