Hello Dear Readers! It’s time for this weekends 33-word Trifecta Writing challenge where challengers were asked to write 33 words containing an IDIOT therein . . . so naturally I thought immediately of my buddy, Al Gore, but then I realized I had read the prompt wrong. Ha ha!! Oops, my bad!!
Therefore, the following 33-word entry has been amended to contain an IDIOM therein:
Pickles the Snake
Pickles the snake was up in arms
Cause she had to work in a walk in
But Pickles the snake had to use her charms
In order to coax her pet croc in!
Until next time . . . I love you
P.S. This post is dedicated to the real-life Pickles, the pet snake of my Blogging Buddy, Bucky over at behindthemaskofabuse.

With your fun pieces, you could write children’s books (:
Ah! Thank you Draug! 😀
I agree! There is definitely content for children’s books in your stories!
Thank you Marie Nicole!! What a nice compliment. And thanks for stopping by and commenting too! 😀
Ahaha!! I love it!!
Do you want me email you a real pic of her?
Sure! Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org! Can’t wait to see Pickles! 😀
okay great and thank you!
I think I initially read it to be “idiot” too. Glad you went with the snake with arms idiom. Hilarious.
Ha! Glad you liked it Lumdog! 😀
Ah yes, the Inconvenient Truth of snakes and crocs working together…
. . . to make America what it is today!!
LOL! You know I love snakes 😉
Ha ha! Dianne! And I know the only reason you would never leave Australia is because of your deep love of snakes falling out of trees on you!! 😀
LOL – I just LOVE that! 😉
hahahahaha – I would rather work with a croc than a snake . . . but maybe that’s just me. 🙂
Oh me too Barbara! I’d pick the croc everytime! ! 😀
What a cute piece Linda & I just love your illustrations-too good!:-)
Ah thank you! The challenges really are so much fun, aren’t they? 😀
Yes,they definitely are:-)
Snakes are always such a bad influence.
Ha! They really are! 😀 It seems like they’ve always got a lot of ideas and most of them (if not all) aren’t very nice ideas. 😀
I like it. Today, I saw two king snakes. They know the last frost has come and they are out sunning. I consider it much luck to see them.
You saw two!! Wow. King snakes are pretty. Far afar that is! We used to have a huge king snake that lived in our neighborhood. He lived under a bush in the graveyard I would walk in everyday. He moved slow enough so he didn’t freak me out when I’d see him. It’s the little speedy ones that completely freak me out! 😀
Bravo! And how wonderful to do such a cool dedication! 🙂
Oh thank you so much Katy!! 😀
