Trifextra: Nervous Babbles

It wasn’t the first time she’d said the wrong thing on an internet date.  She stared glumly into the remains of her gin fizz.  The joke, okay, but did she have to say that thing about the walrus?

A little pure silliness while I’m wrestling with computer problems today, in response to Trifecta Writing Challenge’s weekend prompt, which called for 33 words to follow the beginning “It wasn’t the first time.” Ever have things come out of your mouth before you thought about them? Yeah, me too.

    Ha! Light-hearted and funny, and entirely relatable.

    Lol. Good. I want to hear the conversation!

  4. I hope for her sake the date went uphill. I’ve been in those situations.

    Funny! How often does this happen, online or not. Love it!

    Don’t you hate it when that happens? So real!

  7. She’s probably being too hard on herself. Walruses can be funny. 🙂

    I like what you did here! I’m always looking for new and inventive things to do on my blog. This is great! I like your line too…the walrus, LOL. I’d be interested to keep reading!

  9. Ah, if the dude doesn’t have a sense of humor, he ain’t worth it. Walruses rock!!!

  10. Been there. On both sides. Very curious about how the walrus offended.
    Thanks for linking up. We hope to see you back tomorrow for the new prompt.

    Oh how the mouth does betray the heart with its giddy blurtings.
