Trifecta-Trifextra:Challenge Week One

My Entry:

My dad 🙂

The first time I saw my dad I was eight years old. He was warm and he was kind. I did not know what to think when I saw his eyes fill with tears. Why was he sad?

I was very young when I met my dad for the first time. I did not know he existed until I was seven years old. Very long story there…. But I remember the look on his face very vividly. All he could do was stare at me. He never really cried but I remember the tears sitting right on the edge of his lashes but they never fell. Today we have a wonderful relationship and I am glad he is still part of my life! 🙂

My friend Al is at it again with a new writing challenge. So I have done a little soul searching and put in my addition.

Now this week’s Trifextra challenge. This week we are asking you to count syllables. And words. It’s a lot of math for those of us who might be more accustomed to dealing with words, but we’re confident you can pull it off.
We are asking for a 33-word response to the following snippet:

The first time I saw. . .

Here’s the catch: all of your 33 words must be one syllable each. We’re going low-brow on your this week. Or not. To clarify, we are giving you 5 words. We want another 33 from you, for a grand total of 38.

  1. I just realized that your link on Trifecta doesn’t lead us to this page, which is why you’re not getting many comments from the Trifecta gang. If you have trouble next time, drop us an email and we can help sort you out.

    This is a lovely memory of your father. I love the photo as well. Thank you for sharing.
