Trifextra: Week Ninety-Eight

Charles Dickens, in A Christmas Carol, wrote “There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.” We are giving you exactly 33 words to make us laugh out loud and spread some festive cheer.

Exhilarating coldness, crinkly eyes and a grin

Ironically allow a ton of warmth in

And no matter how many

Camp out, raid your mini,

You still tell yourself you’re above the SALE bin.

Trifextra: Week Seventy-Five

[http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/2013/07/trifextra-week-seventy-five.html]

As such, this weekend we are asking for a thirty-three word free-write.  Any topic, any style–just give us your best thirty three.

This week I decided to put down my “Thought of the Week” in my first attempt at a limerick (aabba rhyme scheme). I’ve taken a bit of a liberty with “b”, as you’ll see. *nervous cough* So here goes:

Stifled by engineering, (a sacrifice?)

Rediscovered writing; added some spice.

A sudden epiphany:  job with The Times,

Then, Oh yeah, this is why I took Science

Solemn vow:  I won’t question it twice.
