#Trifextra: Week 82 – Bedtime story – Rosy’s Weekend

with 6 comments

This weekend Trifecta asked for a 33-word bedtime story. I asked hubby for his thoughts and he went along the traditional route – The snow falls. The bear curls up to sleep. The huntsman aims his rifle. Trifecta didn’t want any shocks or bogeymen, and it’s too short, so I had to try a little harder. Hopefully mine isn’t too syrupy.

 

‘The editors of Trifecta are tired.  Hectic summer plans, last minute school shopping and prep for courses of our own have us drifting off in front of the computer.  Any millisecond we can shave off of our busy schedules could potentially improve the quality of our lives as well as the lives of those around us.  This weekend, we’re enlisting your help in shortening our considerably lengthy bedtime routines by giving us a children’s bedtime story in exactly 33 words.  It can be an old favorite reimagined or a work that is entirely your own.  We only ask that your story not leave our kids with visions of the boogie man dancing in their heads.  These tired bones thank you in advance. ‘

 

Remember:

  • Your response must be between 33 and 333 words.
  • You must use the 3rd definition of the given word in your post.
  • The word itself needs to be included in your response.
  • You may not use a variation of the word; it needs to be exactly as stated above.
  • Only one entry per writer.

Rosy’s Weekend (33 words)

Rosy wakes early every weekend. She fills her days with play, beast hunts, muddy footprints, dog chasing, burning toast, baking, smiling and laughing. She goes to bed tired, sleeps well and dreams happily.

  1. With an eventful day like that, I wonder what’s left to dream about?
    This is great work!

    • Thank you. I think Rosy might be dreaming about all the things she wanted to do and couldn’t fit in – oh the boundless energy of children.

  2. I don’t think it’s syrupy at all. I think I’d like to switch days with her…mine was filled with cleaning floors, laundry, and scrubbing bathrooms. (I hope it still makes me eligible for happy dreams!)
