Trifecta: Week 65 – Exhausted

with 2 comments

Things have been a little hectic this week. It’s been half-term, hubby’s been home from college, and I haven’t had my usual home-alone writing day(s). I have a friend who goes on holiday to write. I don’t know how that works as I have less time than ever during holidays.

The brain has been thinking, even if the fingers haven’t been typing, so I’m taking the day to catch-up on what I’ve missed this week. Nothing is quite as polished as I’d like it to be and comments on how to improve are very welcome.


Trifecta: Week 65

This week Trifecta wanted 33 to 333 words on the third definition of:

EXHAUST (transitive verb)
1a : to consume entirely : use up <exhausted our funds in a week>
b : to tire extremely or completely <exhausted by overwork>
c : to deprive of a valuable quality or constituent <exhaust a photographic developer>
2a : to draw off or let out completely
b : to empty by drawing off the contents; specifically : to create a vacuum in
3a : to consider or discuss (a subject) thoroughly or completely  
b : to try out the whole number of <exhausted all the possibilities>


Mine’s short and sweet but hardly a story. I just had this image of two teenage girls, arms crossed and pouting


The argument (33 words)





‘I’m telling you she did.’

‘I don’t believe you.’

‘Then I think I can safely say we’ve exhausted this topic of conversation.’

‘Well if you think so.’

‘I do.’
