Welcome Dear Readers! This weekend’s Trifecta Writing Challenge is to write 33 words using these three words:
Ring Lardner walked to the middle of the stage, took a sip of water and solemnly announced, “I’ve known what it is to be hungry, but I always went right to a restaurant.”
Ring Lardner was a sportswriter and short-story writer best known for this brilliant bit of dialogue:
“Are you lost, Daddy?” I asked tenderly. “Shut up,” he explained.
Until next time . . . I love you

Wow, what a likeable guy. lol
Right now Rings ghost is saying “why didn’t I think of that?”!
I can just hear him now! I’ve always loved his line, “shut up, he explained. So glad an opportunity presented itself to use it!
This is so simple and it made me laugh. Great story!
Thanks for something completely different and quite humorous.
It was a fun challenge, I’m glad you liked my take, Belvah!
Lol! This is perfect. Only the truly deprived can’t come up with such a poignant statement. 🙂
So true! He doesn’t look so nice in the picture either. 😀
i’ll comment when i get back from the restaurant!
Classic! Love it!
I laughed out loud Linda! Great work.
So glad to hear it Papparaci! 😀
Ha! Great piece. And probably the most original use of the word ring 🙂
Thank you Yve! 😀
I hope he was at least a good tipper;) This was hilarious Linda!
Ha! Yes, let’s hope he was a good tipper! 😀
Haha ! Cool piece 😀
Thanks Shreyakashyap! 😀
Things for the grin Linda. Nice to have a bit of humor in the prompt.
So glad you liked it Deb! 😀
Let them eat cake!
I’m sure that quote would go viral in this day. Then he would slink away for a few years and come back fully absolved!
Thanks for this 😉
That’s clever! Thank you for linking up!
He comes off like a real jerk!
