For this week’s challenge, you have to write a letter of apology in exactly 33 words. Addresses, salutations, closings, etc. (should you wish to include them) do not count in the 33 words.
Dear Ms. Pinkie,
On behalf of myself and the entire team, I would like to extend our heart-felt apologies in conjunction with the abrupt severing of our relationship last Thursday. It was purely accidental.
The Hand from Whence You Came
The Tullberry Todgrass Brooch Scandal came in 2nd in last week’s Trifecta Writing Challenge!
Until next time . . . I love you

Dangit! I did it again! I meant to post the above as Chatty Cathie…I also manage the RPL Friends blog. Grrr! In any case, HILARIOUS! Love the “apology” to Ms. Pinkie. Too funny!
Oh, haha! I saw the RPL friends and I thought, how random! And it was you all along! LOL! 😀
Glad you like it! 🙂
Yeah…yeah…it was me! I have two browsers (Safari and Firefox). One stays logged on as Chatty Cathie and the other as RPL Friends. If I’m not careful, I’ll read in the wrong browser and post under the wrong name.
So take it as a compliment: we both liked it. ::snort::
Ha! That could make for some high hilarity, in your hands Cathie! 😀
bwahahahaha! awww poor pinkie, alas we know her no more.
Ha! So true, the team’s gonna miss her!
You have my vote this week for sure! I loved this story. LOVED it! Great wit you have. What a deliciously dark, twisted humor here. Reminds me of a black comedy that I watched a long time ago, called Burke and Hare, with the same sort of humor as your story here. And its (loosely) based on a true story. Not sure if you will like it, but here is more info just in case you might be interested in seeing it:
So glad you liked it Scriptor! I check it out now! Thanks! 🙂
Good one! So sterile – I hope the cut was! 😉
Ha! You and me both! Thanks for stopping by fghart!
I love “the team.” And that Pinkie is/was female. Good stuff!
Thanks Amanda from myself and the team! 🙂
Ahhh! It took me a second, but I got it at severing. This one made me wince! Good job!
HA! Wincing is always good! (I think) HA! Thanks for coming by Mel! 🙂
Oh the pain of it all.
I loved it good one. 😀
Yes, a painful and apologetic! Thanks Mags! 🙂
Hahaha! I’m assuming that Darkside Peanuts came up with that story line? Very funny.
Congrats on “The Tullberry Todgrass Brooch Scandel.” That had WINNER written all over it. Great job!
Ah! Thank you so much Lisa! You are always so supportive! 🙂 And yes, I think Darkside Peanuts wants to get involved in everything now! HA!
great one! there’s not much more to say to it, is there 😉
Thanks Braintomahawk. You’re right, what’s done is done. We’ll just have to make a clean cut of it from here on out! 🙂
Oh. My. God.
I cringed while laughing. Unusual experience…
Hmmm . . .That sounds oddly fun.
Oh God!! VERY good though!
Thanks Libby. And thanks for coming by! 🙂
My husband did this to his hand. Sadly he knew he miscalulated the cut, but he was already in motion, and the blade took his finger tip. Oh yes, I love the response to the challenge.
Oh I’m so sorry to hear that really happened to your husband! Yikes! Glad you liked it anyway :D! Thanks for coming by Latittude of a Day (Great Name!) 🙂
I laughed out loud. Silly, funny, and at the same time scary. My knees got a little mooshy there especially when I saw the blade. 🙂 Great job.
Oh I’m so glad you like it Imelda! Thank you for coming by! 🙂
The word ‘severed’ usually leaves me convulsing. And my brain is now stuck on a continual tape loop of the word. (Shudder.)
UH OH! A little off topic but I’ve been wanting to tell you how much I like your name Old Dog New Tits. HA! 🙂 Thanks for coming by!
Great take on the prompt. Made me pause for a moment and count each one of my digits just to be sure :).
Yes! It would be awful for us bloggers to lose Ms. Pinkie. Thanks for coming by Mairzzbp. 🙂
I’ve heard of giving someone the finger, but that was an especially unkind cut… : (
I think that hand might have been cousins with The Hand That Rocks the Cradle. . . : > /
