Trifextra: Week Eighty-Five… JEALOUSY


JEALOUSY… In 33 Words

O Draug, you have done it again!
Dashed off another first place piece of writing.
The words spill effortlessly from your pen once again.
O Draug, you are starting to piss me off!


A Note to My Readers (Trifectians need no explanation):

One of the first works I read when I came to The Trifecta Writing Challenge was by Draug.  After reading thousands of great writings by my fellow Trifectians and occasionally one by myself, it is still my favorite… Blast Off … have a read and see for yourself.  But back to this post… each challenge, the first entry I read is always Draug’s.  She is an excellent writer who continually trounces the opposition (us) in the writing challenges.  I had no idea what to write this time, I always thought Apostrophe was just a punctuation mark, but when I read Draug’s piece… No, the Other Apostrophe … I knew what I would write.  Yes, my entry would be using an Apostrophe Fueled by Jealousy… for her story this week takes a place next to Blast Off.  



Here is this week’s Trifextra Challenge, and to see more fine 33 word stories… Click the Trike!    This week we are taking you, once again, back to school for a lesson in literary devices. Remember the apostrophe?  About.com defines apostrophe as, “A figure of speech in which some absent or nonexistent person or thing is addressed as if present and capable of understanding.”  Give us your best 33-work example of an apostrophe.


Incidentally, for those Ethel and Cheryl fans out there… They made a guest appearance at Friday Fictioneers last week…  Friday Fictioneers: GAME TIME … in case you would like to pay them a visit.

“Some people will do anything for a laugh.”

” What do you mean?”

“Well, look at that old fool over there, trying a stunt like that. She’ll get hurt.’

” What do you care, you’re not her mother, don’t be so critical. You can’t save the world you know.”

Who’s trying to save the world? I was just making an observation.”

“Well, at least she’s trying something different. I suppose you are going to trot out that old song you always sing.”

“Everyone loves my song.”

“They’re just being kind.”

“Look at her, now she’s taking out her teeth flapping her gums!”
