Trifextra Writing Challenge – The Phone Rang at 4am


The phone rang at 4am.

I heard nothing.  I was alseep.  I had water in my ears from excessive pearl diving besides which  I don’t even own a phone. So there’s that too.

Take the Trifextra 33-Word Weekend Challenge Here! 

It’s fun!

  1. I’d join in, but I’m already at max load and this sounds like something I’d end up spending a lot of time on…. should be fun though. I’ll come back another time when I’m not feeling so pressed for it….thanks for sharing….

    • You’re right! Time flies with stuff like this. Next thing you know you’ve burned through an hour, then two. But that seems to be the nature of blogging. So many to read, so many to write! It’s fun though!

  2. love it…. I just did mine – posted mine, geez it took a long time. And I fell asleep working on it. It was after 4 am though 🙂 This is just so you.! Pearl diving lol who’d a thunk? only you and that’s why it;s great! -)

  3. Thanks so much for linking up to Trifextra. Remember, this weekend’s entries are being judged by the Trifecta community, so make sure you visit the site at the close of the challenge to vote. Our linking service will not allow you to vote for a link from the same computer where it was submitted, so plan ahead! Voting closes 12 hours after the close of the challenge. Winners will be announced with the Monday post. Hope to see you back then.

  4. Can a get a “Woot” for funny business? I love this. I love, love, love it. I am primarily a humor writer and it’s hard to do my thing among these incredibly talented, typically more serious-minded, Trifectans.

    I do dabble in serious, but it’s not my natural state. Glad to have a humorist on board.

    Fun piece.

    Now I have three favorites. What’s a girl to do?

  5. Pearl diving? You crack me up. How do you think of this stuff?

    Thanks for the lead, did not know about Trifextra. Went ahead and entered even though I do not have a blog and am an oldish (o.k., we can drop the “ish” now, I give.) beginner.

    • Ha ha Lyndi! Judging from your comment it looks like you better start a blog! I’ll have to go check out your entry. Oh and let’s make a pact right now to NEVER drop the ISH! 🙂 🙂

  6. Your right, Linda. Whew. Had a weak moment there. I hereby submit to a solemn pact with you…………we will forever hang on to the ISH. AIR HIGH FIVE!

    Whenever I think about my own blog I practically break out in a rash. I mean, just submitting 33 words had me immobile with anxiety. I was o.k. until I pressed the “send” button. Laid awake all night thinking “Eeh gads, what if they all think I am an alcoholic because my submission dealt with an impaired woman. I don’t even drink. Is it too late to take it back and submit another about a nun?” It would be just like me to add another post loudly declaring “Oh, in case you were wondering, I DON’T DRINK”. Then I would lay awake another night thinking “So what if I did drink? So what would be wrong with that? What? Do I think I am better than someone who drinks? Of course not. So why is it even an issue?”. The next morning I would have to add another post saying “While I don’t drink, I would like to make it perfectly clear that there is nothing wrong with drinking and did not mean to imply that I in any way look down on any sentient being that wants to imbibe his/her way through life, even though my submission seemed to cast the woman in a somewhat negative light…”

    See what I mean? My own blog would, for sure, propel me to an early demise. Best to enjoy my little list of talented, gutsy folks who live inside my computer.

    • Hahahahahahah! Lyndi!! You are so funny. Ok, we’ve made a pact about the “ish”. Now we have to make a pact that you will not only start your blog today, but you will use this comment as your very first post! With all that second (third, fourth and fifth) guessing yourself going are you are a natural, Lyndi! I love it!

  7. Thanks my dear. You know, your right. I am probably just neurotic enough to be able to pull it off. Maybe someday. Meanwhile, I think I will just hang around and enjoy your stuff!

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
