Thirds

If I spend one-third of my life sleeping and two-thirds thinking of you, then chances are, there is room for nothing else. But when I add it up, still I am not whole.


This post was written in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge Trifextra prompt:

Andy Rooney created something called “The 50-50-90 rule: anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there’s a 90% probability you’ll get it wrong.”  We want you to give us your own probability equation.  Use whichever numbers suit you, and make it about whatever you like, but give us something to think about.  In 33 words, of course.

I promise I’m not pandering to the Trifecta editors with my choice of fractions. It just worked out that way.

      Thanks, Sandra! After going back and reading others, I realize I may have missed the mark a bit with the prompt. I abstracted the idea a whole lot, but seriously, math and I do not get along. 🙂

      *grin* I wrote it, and then went, “Oh, jeez, they’re totally going to think I’m playing on the whole three thing.” Which of course I am. I mean, I’m not. I mean, I am, but not for your benefit. Unless it gets me a win. I mean, um, maybe I shouldn’t have had that third glass of wine…
