    I don’t get it… (?) But I clicked the link and I don’t get that either, so… Meh. Whatever. Hope you’re having a good weekend.

    • It stole my reply to you, dammit, so now you get a shorter, easier-to-read version.
      1. Trifecta is an internet writing contest, started about a year ago by a couple blogger/writers.
      2. They have a weekly “Trifecta” and weekend “Trifextra” contest.
      3. You win nothing but their mention in the next post (winner plus 2nd and 3rd place), plus the admiration of your fellow entrants.
      4 During the week they want 33-333 words, usually having to include some word, such as “dwell” this week, exactly as written, not dwelled or dwelling, in your poem, story, whatever.
      5. Trifextra, the weekend one, is often more free-form. 2 weekends ago I came in 2nd with my “Christian Mingle” when all they wanted was exactly 33 words of dialogue. (Oh, yeah, the weekend one is almost always exactly 33 words long.)
      6. This weekend they want something, anything, which uses some hyperbole somewhere in the 33 words. I used more of it than anyone has EVER used. Or something.

    You’re a brilliant writer AND a speed reader?!? I don’t like you anymore. *pouts*

    • Brilliant, huh? Oh, yeah it is hyperbole weekend. I bet there is a speed reader somewhere in the world who could read all these in 13 seconds total if they were printed out. The clicking of links is tedious though. And, speaking for myself, our attention spans are about ruined by net surfing, so one wants to just zip through these short ones. Thanks in any case.

    Best part of Trifextra is the 13 second read 😉

  12. Thirteen seconds! Loved this part.
