Trifextra: Sympathy For The Devil


“Just tell me this. Why am I always at the center of your bickering? Why do you weigh so much? And why me?”

“BECAUSE!” they shout simultaneously.

“Oh, right. I forgot for a second.” 

**************************
33 words inspired by the classic Stones' song Sympathy For The Devil.

    1. Those guys that sit on each shoulder bicker with each other all the time. And about me!!! And then always telling me what to do. You would never bicker in my presence or with me, I know it!

      I'm absolutely fantastic. Got home late last night and am severely jet lagged at the moment. Hoping a little nap will keep me awake for the rest of the day! I've missed you too!

    1. Thanks. It's my battle. However, I did write a serious one, too, using Michelangelo's Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden as inspiration. It sits in a very full draft file!

  4. Sometimes the two sides just need to have a big fistfight, right? Except we know who would win that one!

    1. Exactly! One is so sweet, the other so enticing.

  5. Because is the answer to everything, right up there with Nothing.

    1. But "because" encompasses so, so much. I'm guilty of using it on just a few occasions and mostly out of frustration. "Nothing", I don't use. Okay, not often.

  6. Love this Gina! They do get heavy after awhile, don't they! Maybe we are just too nice to tell them both to get lost, and give us some room to think;) Very fun 33 words!

    1. They also chatter a lot especially in my case! Think is all I seem to do. Very distracting sometimes when I long for peace and quiet. Thanks, Valerie!

  9. It's a miracle any of us can stand up straight, with that on our shoulders.
