Trifecta Weekend Writing Challenge: A Very Special Mother’s Day Gift


I am so happy and delighted, Dear Readers, to announce that My Brain Peanuts wrote a story called Henny Zoots Meets an Enigma that won this week’s Trifecta Writing challenge!! YAY!  My Brain Peanuts will be celebrating by eating three  huge pieces of Trifecta Writing Challenge Triple Chocolate Cake! 

Now for the weekend challenge:  write a 33-word story incorporating the word mother.

A Very Special Mother’s Day Gift

 Father outdid himself the year he arranged for Mother to square off with Sonny Liston for Heavyweight Champion of the World.  The fight lasted seven seconds.  Pity she didn’t remember any of it!

Until next time . . . I love you

  1. Hmmm… You don’t suppose Father had any ulterior motives, do you? I’d like to arrange a match between my mom and Mike Tyson. Haha!

    Congratulations on your Trifecta challenge!!! That’s awesome, Linda!!! Yay!

    • Ah thanks Lisa! 😀

      Haha! I guess Father was gettng bored just watching the Golf Channel! LOL you’re mom and Mike Tyson! Save that for next year’s Mother’s Day so she can start training for it today!

  2. Congratulations…I saw that you won and not surprised at all…it was wonderful..I don’t enter much as I don’t think I’m in the same league as all the creative writers that there are…I did however do the weekend one just for fun…..Diane

    • Oh goody Diane, I can’t wait to check out your entry. I worote a second one for this weekend but missed the deadline. I shouldn’t have taken that Mother’s Day Nap! LOL!

  3. Hi,
    Wow, congratulations, that is fantastic, it was an excellent post. 😀
    Happy Mother’s Day, and oh I love that photo. 🙂

    • Oh thank you Libby. I’m so glad you liked it. It’s always amazes me how I always seem to find a picture that suits the story no matter how off the wall! 😀

  4. Congrats on the win! and I love your mother’s day contribution. There are so many rounds I have no recollection of since becoming a mom. I also don’t know whether I triumphed or not …

  5. The fight was over, the gym dark. High in the rafters, two bats looked at a pair of dentures. “It’s an enigma,” said Marvin. “No,” said Conrad, “it’s Ma’s enig– and I sure hope she’s not having corned beef for dinner tonight… ”

  6. I wonder if she didn’t remember as a side effect from being on the juice.
    Seriously, I’ve seen mother. (s)he has muscles bigger than Tyson.

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