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.
