Too Sweet


Sugar in your coffee like iron to the soul.

With a wink and a word: Sugar


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.

  1. I love the line, you lips crush mine. That sugar always has another side, doesn’t it? Thanks for playing along with us again this week. Please be sure to come on back tomorrow for the new challenge.
