Bird Brain (Trifextra Week 51, January 2013)

The Trifecta Weekend Challenge is to create a piece of 33 words from one of three photo prompts. 

This is more difficult than you’d think.

I told my girl we’d meet at eight,

“Where at?” she asked – “the Empire State?”

Been waiting over  half an hour –

I’ll bet she’s at the Freedom Tower.

Duh! … no sense of direction

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    • Sandra says:

      I didn’t know whether to use ‘duh’ or ‘doh’ but when I googled it I found there is a difference, and ‘duh’ is more derogatory. Didn’t know that. 😦
