We lived on cheap flights of fancy and cheaper mugs of wine, educations stashed in plastic crates. Now the wines are finer, the books on shelves, and flights are expensive and so far.
This post was written in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge Trifextra prompt:
This weekend we are giving you three variations on a prompt. We need you to give us 33 words back, and 2 of those words must be either “cheap flights,” “sandwiched in” or “spectacularly clean.” This weekend, your piece must also be non-fiction (poetry or prose). And yes, we reserve the right to call your mothers and former lovers to ask for verification on your tales.
This weekend’s challenge, being a Trifextra evenly divisible by three, will be judged by the community. Please be sure to visit the Trifecta Writing Challenge site on Sunday to vote for your favorite three posts (or up to three posts). Voting starts at 7pm Eastern (4pm Pacific).
