#Trifextra: Week 86 – Time Travel – 8/11/2028

with 12 comments

This weekend’s Trifextra is courtesy of MOV and Trifecta wanted a 33-word time travel story.
We don’t usually tell you what to title your piece, but we’d love it if you could title it with the year/date that you choose.’


‘Trust her to be so impatient.’

‘But only just missing out!’

‘She fluffed a First by half a percent and didn’t complain.’

‘She shouldn’t mind dying a week before her 100th birthday then.’

  1. That’s a goal that would be hard to plan for…

    • I seemed to have missed the ‘travel’ apsect of this weekend’s challnege. But I have to thank you for the idea. I didn’t know what to do until I read the background to your story and how you had thought of looking into the future. That, and the death of my 94-year old great-aunt last week, got me to here. My nan made it to 98 and 3/4 so it was she who (not quite so narrowly) missed out.

  6. Love the idea that fluffing a First by half a percent makes you amenable to dying… She shouldn’t mind dying…

    • As I did fluff a First by that margin, I am pretty laid back about things. I think there is too much perceived fear around death. Pain I don’t want, but a nice long rest….
