This post was written for Trifecta’s weekend prompt. Enjoy!

Sarah’s nose crinkled nervously. She took one cautious step down the gangplank, tripped on a tribble, and fell flat before the astounded Venusians. “Frack!” exclaimed Sarah in vexation, forgetting her first-contact protocols entirely.

  1. I like the image of her nose crinkling nervously.

    • I just like the word “crinkling”; it’s one of my favorites, like marina and persiflage. 🙂

  2. I hate it when I trip on a tribble. That was fun.

  3. Wow. Thanks for linking up with Trifextra this weekend. I agree with Lumdog–it was fun. I read it aloud the second time through, just for kicks. Great job with the prompt.

  4. Haha, love how it ends. and yay for shorty short stories!

    • yeah, I liked the ending too. Poor Sarah, starting an interstellar crisis on her first day on the planet….:)

  5. Ha! That’s a little less dignified than Neil Armstrong but it’s certainly epic!

  6. That’s the trouble with tribbles.
