#Trifextra: Week 60 – 3 Rs – Grandma

with 23 comments

This weekend, Trifecta are revisiting a prompt:

‘We are giving you three words and asking that you add another 33 to them to make a complete 36-word response.  You may use the words in any order you choose.

Our three words are:




Do you remember last summer, Grandma? Eating strawberries on the lawn? Your little rebellion was to dip them in peanut butter instead of cream?

We ate until the rain came, and then dashed for the eaves.

    • Thank you. Grandparents can teach us much, but I’m not sure their weird food choices should be included.

    • Good luck. I don’t like peanut butter as a rule, but even I might be tempted if it a strawberry attached.

    • Thanks Kymm. I’m looking forward to sweet summer strawberries. Unfortunately, the weather in the UK at the moment wants to take us back towards winter.

    • Thank you Suzanne for your lovely comments. I’m not sure how I got to this story, but I fancied writing something uplifting after the other less positive pieces I’ve written this week.

  11. Wow… this was one of the best uses of those ‘ungoingtogetherwords’… so natural and real… and such a nice story.

    • Thank you so much Ted. I wasn’t sure the use of rebellion didn’t stick out a bit, but I’m glad you didn’t think so.
