This weekend’s Trifecta challenge was to write 33 words about a famous trio, from literature, history, or pop culture. I decided to go with mythology. Because mythology’s fun, right? Of course, right.

“Lachie! Thread!”

“You know, Clotho says zippers are big nowadays….”

“I’m not using zippers, Lachie. Thread works just fine.”

“You have no imagination.”

“Whatever. Just hand me the flippin’ thread, will you? Oy.”

    I LOVE everything you write, always. This was whimsical and almost like sibling rivalry. I loved it.

    the “Oy.” PERFECT. 🙂


  2. so glad I skipped the Fates. I knew someone else would do them proud! Great dialog

    • Thanks! I’ve seen at least one other person who did the Fates; it is one of the more memorable trios. 🙂

  4. I like the interaction between them, but I still can’t figure out who the trio is!

    I’ve always loved the fates – good choice 🙂

  6. Love your take on the Fates! And seriously, just say no to zippers. 😉

  7. You’re one in a million, buddy.
    Very clever and well written.

  8. The squabbling is exactly how I see them, OY 😉

  9. I am going to ponder the implications of a fate created with a zipper for days…great job!

  10. Ha.. that was hard to figure out the trio… love riddles

  11. *hee hee* I love the Fates – so much opportunity for good stories.
