Trifextra – Wheerrrrreeee Isssss Ittttt?!?


Today’s Music: KT Tunstall – Suddenly I See

When Trifecta goes topical, they don’t mess around.
The upcoming elections? Nope.
Government shutdown? Uhuh.
They’re channeling Halloween!

And I quote: “You’ve found some old books. On page 3 of one of the books, this illustration appears:
Give us the 33 words that follow this illustration. What happens next?”

How could I resist?
Hoe you enjoy it.

We all knew that face, that mood, that pathos.
The blood curdling shrieks were familiar. The confusion, terror and anger would hover. He wouldn’t be relaxed again until he found his contact lens.

    • The lost contact lens is one of the commonaities of a few generations before this Lasik and disposable-extended-contact bhusiness.

    • Thanks Kayjai.
      This piece can also be easily edited for lack of food, beer, wine, what have you.

      I once rinsed a contact lens with beer.
      Sadly, that is not the stupidest thing I’ve ever done.

  33. I unleashed one of those blood curdling screams the other morning when I thought I had dropped my lens on the floor. The only thing that gets me worse than that is when I can’t find my wallet, or if I misplace my cell phone (I’m usually looking for it AS I talk on it….pathetic).
    Nicely done Tri-athlon.

    • The only thing that upset me about not using contacts was not being able to jsut put on sunglasses.
      Now I just where my contacts when I’m diving or climbing or something like that.

  37. That would really suck to have two different sized contact lenses. This is what I imagine lurks at the bottom of a port-a-jon tank.

    • My eyes have have slightly different prescriptions, so different sized eyes would make it a little easier.
      And if your last observation is correct, I’ll just be blind, thanks.
