This weekend’s Trifecta Writing Challenge is to write a story between 33 and 333 words utilizing three pictures that they have provided as prompts.
Gone with the Jupiter Wind
Vendle Grub maneuvered his craft around the Space Needle fast enough to be undetected by human eyes; but not so fast that he didn’t get a useable snippet of molecules from which to recreate a replica of it back on Jupiter.
You see, Vendle Grub was an Earth Aficionado. There was nothing Vendle Grub liked better than collecting earth souvenirs for Jupiter’s Little Earth which is what Vendle called his backyard.
Of course, most of the landmarks Vendle collected would eventually blow away, living as he did in the eye of a 400-year hurricane of epic proportions, but Vendle persisted anyway, partly because he was determined, and partly because it was a good reason to get off the planet and away from the constant gurgling of his nagging wife, Davenportia — who couldn’t even be bothered to remember his name.
One time, Vendle Grub brought back molecules from the Amazon jungle, and proceeded to recreate a replica of it in the backyard. He down played it by telling Davenportia it was nothing more than a really big ant farm.
Davenportia was okay with having the Amazon Jungle in her back yard at first. In fact, she loved the Piranha (either mixed with yogurt or just straight out of the pond). But neither one of them could ever figure out how to twist the tops off the bottle-nosed dolphins, and the yard work was ridiculous — so they were both relieved when it finally blew away.
When Vendle returned home with the Space Needle, Davenportia was overjoyed! Finally what’s his name, brought home something useful! Davenportia poked some holes in some leather (a Jupiter token of love) using the her new Space Needle! When Vendle saw what Davenportia had made for him, he was deeply touched and took out his White Out (Jupiter’s version of the ballpoint pen) and scrawled lovingly:
hi! I’m________and i’m completely inlove with you.V
But before he could hand it back, it blew away.

Until next time . . . I love you

You’ve blown me away! A story which totally relates these ridiculously unrelated pics. Linda, I worry about where your mind is at but then I remember, we are both “children of the 60s”. So, all this makes perfect sense! Love this!
Oh Lumdog you are so right! They were ridiculously unrelated! Ha! Yes I think my 60’s inner flower child played a role in this one for sure. I’m so glad you liked it. 😀
lmfao this is so awesome 😀
So very glad you liked it Draug! 😀
absolutely awesome! wish i had written this; sigh
Ah! Thanks rashmenon! 😀
You weaved a beautiful story out of these. Perfect.
Oh thank you Ruby! 😀
Excellent job tying the pics together.
Thanks Trifecta. This one was really a challenge! 😀
Incredibly imaginative. I’d like to tap into my imagination in a similar way. This is so good…
Davenportia! bwahahaha – nicely done.
So glad you liked it Barbara. I figured Davenportia would work if I couched it right.
This is hilarious! I love the bit about piranha and yogurt 🙂
Oh I’m so glad you liked it Janna. Davenportia was always a sucker for piranha! HA!
What a riot. I especially love the captions, and yes, the piranha, straight from the pond. Oh, and it might be nice to have a hurricane blow through my study.
Haha Kymmin! I could use one too right about now! 😀
Those wacky Jupititians!
They make the Neptunians look downright responsible.
Brilliant – Sci-fi not my genre, but this one could convert me!
vivinfrance! So glad you liked it and how nice of you to say so! 😀
A work of Jupiterian proportions!! And using the three worst photos since some tasteless photographer snapped three of young Alvin Gore with his groundhoggy teeth full of Funyun paste for his high school yearbook senior photo!!
Twisting the tops off the bottle-nosed dolphins– haw!!!! Brilliant!! : )
LOL!! It is a good day when one finds a reason to use the word Jupiterian, don’t you think, MacGiggles? And from this day forward I shall only refer to Al Gore as Alvin Gore!! Ha ha! And I’ll bet he does use Funyun Paste made especially by the Defense Department or the State Department or some other Department especially for Alvin Gore! HA! 😀
