Too Sweet

 

Sugar in your coffee like iron to the soul.

With a wink and a word: Sugar

and

Your lips crush mine.

My sweet revenge to your wandering ways: Sugar in your gas tank.

Trifextra Challenge~This weekend we’re borrowing from the musical world.  Noted blues musician, Lead Belly, was quoted in Three Uses of the Knife by David Mamet as saying:

You take a knife, you use it to cut the bread, so you’ll have strength to work; you use it to shave, so you’ll look nice for your lover; on discovering her with another, you use it to cut out her lying heart.

He uses one object, a knife, to flesh out a character and to tell a story in a basic three-part dramatic structure.  We want the same from you.  Give us 33 words (exactly) that tell us three different uses for one object.  But don’t just tell us that a can opener can be used to 1) open cans, 2) open beer bottles and 3) break a window in case of a fire.  Tell us a story, like Lead Belly did, if you can.  It won’t be easy, but you guys are far beyond needing easy prompts.
