Trouble

Grab a pool cue, chalk it with care, lean seductively. Make a spectacularly clean shot, five ball in the corner pocket. Follow that with the cue ball, any pocket. All pockets. The floor.


Trifecta says: 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.
This weekend's challenge, being a Trifextra evenly divisible by three, will be judged by the community. Click on your favorite three posts (or up to three posts).

  7. Nicely done! I like the way you used the prompt - I couldn't come up with a way to use that particular phrase myself, not in non-fiction, anyhow. :)

    1. Thanks Christine. Fiction, non-fiction, it's always a slippery slope for me.
