Travel Relief






        While traveling on a vacation of a lifetime to scenic Italy with my best friends, I felt the sudden urge to relieve myself.  Pointing, I exclaimed   
“As I pee, sir, I see Pisa!” 




      This week the folks at trifecta challenged us to use a palindrome in a short story of a mere 33 words.   A palindrome is a word or phrase that reads the same forward as it does backwards.

  1. Heehee. I was hopin' somebody would use that one. ;)

    1. JoJo, I am so pleased you liked it!! LOL! Usually I just sit down and write it...and that's it. This one I just sat down and picked a palindrome from a list and the rest just happened. If it doesn't just flow, I stop what I am doing and do something else and come back to it. Usually it just comes to me and flows through my fingertips. I can't explain it. If I have to work at it, then I just don't do it. I walk away. Hope that answers your question. LOL Thank you so much for stopping by to read and for your sweet comments, and all your encouragement! ♥

  4. Under the solemn circumstances so many of these posts are being written, we all needed a good pee in the worst way. Thanks for this and for everything else that you have posted under the Trifecta banner that has lifted our spirits and made us smile. You are a great writer with a big heart. Best of luck in the world beyond Trifecta.

  13. That's a hard challenge! I kind of dropped out of the Trifecta writing, but I'm going to try to get in on one of their final challenges...sad to see it end.

    1. jannatwrites. this was really a fun challenge. It made me even sadder to realize it is one of Trifecta's last. I will be so sad to see it end because I feel that Trifecta really helped me grow as a writer. There are few challenges out there that can boast that benefit plus bring you in contact with writers who truly have extraordinary talent. Thank you for stopping by to read and for your sweet comments! ♥
