Boom, Baby

by on October 17, 2013

This week is a fairly special Trifecta challenge, as it’s number ninety-nine.  As such, we get to write 99 words, with one of them being chosen from page 99 of the Oxford English Dictionary. It truly is a special event. I haven’t participated in all the Trifecta challenges, sadly; my first Trifecta story was for week twenty-eight. But it’s been a fun ride since then; I’ve found characters like the Third Little Pig, Rain, and Constance the dearly departed treasure-hunter, and made a lot of fellow writer friends along the way. So, to celebrate this momentous occasion, I decided to revisit the characters in that first Trifecta story, way back in May 2012. Roll film!

Doctor Sheep had wanted revenge against the Sneeze for a long time. Plan A: ruin her prom by unleashing wild mutant wolves. Alas, Emmy had skipped that bacchanal to study for the SAT. Plan B, exploding mangoes, had backfired spectacularly, as Emmy was deathly allergic to mangoes. Plan C hadn’t fared much better. So he’d gone unhappily down the alphabet to Plan Z. Z was the Babushka, a death ray he’d ordered specially from Russia. Z had to work. Just push the red button and-

*KABOOM*

Emmy smirked. Everyone knew blue was the right one. Only idiots pushed red.

    • Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy my previous entries as well; not all of them involve superheroes or Doctor Sheep, but they’re quite fun. 🙂

    I loved the title most.
    As always, your writing is tight, literal and so engaging, you get to the end and say “where’s the rest?”

    nice job…and good luck with that blue button.

    • Thanks! I was going to call this story “Kaboom” but then I figured since the trend was words that begin with B…. 😀

    Working through the alphabet: what a great image. I love that you worked in “babushka” as well!

  4. You need more words…I want to know what exactly went wrong with the exploding mangoes. (I mean, what can go wrong with that, really? :))

  5. *hahaha* Fantastic – quirky and fun.

  6. Awesome. I love that you’ve been with us for so long. Thanks for linking up and thanks for your support. Don’t forget to vote!

  7. Ha!ha!Moral of the story-even plan Z may not work -poor Dr.Sheep(with a name like that,no wonder…) 😉
