S.O.S.

Wanted.

One ticket back to the 20th century.

Being transferred to the new millennium was supposed to be a promotion, but now that I’m here, I’m lost.

I need to register a complaint.

Who’s in charge?

 

 

This weekend Trifextra is asking for exactly 33 of your own words plus the following three words:

  • charge
  • century
  • lost

So 33 of yours plus 3 of ours means that everyone will have a 36 word response this time around.

  6. Are you sad today? Just sounds like it a bit. What happened; pains in your heart or your tummy? Does your throat seem sore from all the yelling you did when you were trying to get my shoes? Dang. My ydd wears an 8 and she is always re-stocking her inventory. and ...she has a friend that is a clothes-horse/shoe-horse that is really restocking HER inventory. You just may get some fab shoes in the mail some day sooooooon!

    1. Thanks janna! Life seems a little complicated at times-I guess the idea of going back to simpler days, even if they weren't always, is comforting sometimes:)

  13. I remember thinking the 70s were the dumbest decade ever, but I would totally pay to go back to them. Great use of the prompts!

    ReplyDelete
  14. The 70's do seem almost quaint now, don't they... Isn't it funny how nostalgic we get for what we couldn't wait to get away from?!

    1. Thank you kymm! What a great comment! (It's a good thing I ain't in charge either!) ;)

  25. Valerie, I'm always amazed at what you come up with based on the challenges! I had a conversation not too long with a friend about whether the "good old days" were really better/worse then now or whether it's our perception and nostalgia for a time that's different in hopes that our situation would be different. It's one of those "thinkers!"

  26. I agree Jess-it is. I know the good old days weren't perfect by any means, but lately, especially, they seem better than now. More innocent-and I miss that:)
