Three Things Challenge: PL151/152

Community Prompt Tagging Directory

Welcome back to the Three Things Challenge.

Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

151 -Today’s prompt:  desktop, lasagna, tissue

152 -Today’s prompt: sweatpants, court, begonia


Be Gone with Ya!

Through the court hallways at topflight,
Did so run at speed the young lawyer …
Screaming out her lungs which was quite the sight,
… And as she spun around the corner into the foyer,
Did l happen per chance to hear,
“Oh no, be gone with ya, my poor be gone with ya!”
Which l hasten to add was quite, quite peculiar!
To see this woman in her attire of top and sweatpants,
On a Friday of all days,
Acting in an unprofessional manner with her chants!
Most assuredly not the display,
One is accustomed to seeing in chambers of law!
… carrying on to the degree of such unrefined hoopla!
“Slow down for goodness sake!” I screeched,
“What on earth is this all about, what’s the Issue?”
Upon turning her face was almost drained, bleached?
“Oh goodness, tell me do you have a tissue?”
“I cannot stop, l mustn’t stop!”
“I have an emergency, that requires immediate attention!”
“My lunch of piping hot lasagne spilled onto my desktop!”
Which was quite beyond my wildest comprehensions!
“Okay, so why the screams of ‘be gone with ya?”
The startled woman looked absolutely mortified,
“No, no, no  it’s also damaged my poor begonia!”
She cried!
