Trifextra: A Very Married Conversation



“My heart’s a shriveled raison

Thinking of you every second.”

“Bad” TV queued.

“I bet.”

“I miss you more than life.”

Ice cream spoon dangling.

“Yeah, right.”

Bon bons? Check.

“Be good.”

“You, too.”

***********************

This weekend's challenge at Trifecta is to include some hyperbole in 33 words.

  1. Another obsession? Where does it rank among the others? e.g. Peanut butter, shoes, Bears football? Very funny. Good one! :)

    1. Thanks, Kymm. I like playfully conversing. Replace the potato with e and you have my weekend in a nutshell. However there's a chair in the room that needs attention too. (couch for reading and chair for movies).

      I just went back to see if raisin d'être would work. Just needs a little rewording.

  11. I love 'bad TV queued' - that would be someone who totally got me as I have a weakness for high and very very low things, haha. Hope your Valentine's was a sweet one!

    1. It's a typical one. We can be sassy sometimes but in a good way. That picture cracks me up because of the book resting there. That's what my house looks like minus the potato but that's me!

    1. Oh, I could out-relax almost anyone if I have a book or a movie. I'm not terribly dainty either. Never extend the pinkie!
