Jack Did It

"Oh yeah, I remember, I'm in this fleabag hotel reaking of Lysol, wearing nothing but the polyester bedspread around my waist. Ok, I know I had way too much Jack last night, but jeez, I know how to hold my liquor, right?"

"Right darling, my folks will be so happy to hear they have a new son-in-law, shall we call them now?

I wrote this for the Week 71 Trifextra Writing Challenge where we are to write a complete story in three sentences.

  4. Just the mere smell of Jack is enough to bring back some very silly moments from my younger days. Thanks for the memories....I think :)

  7. Being somewhat of a germaphobe, my breath caught when I read that he had the polyester bedspread around his waist.(Those should only be handled with gloves!)

    Looks like he will have some explaining to do! It might also be a good idea to distance himself from Jack. Jack seems to be a bad influence :)

    1. Yeah, I'm a bit germophobic so I had to force myself to write this. It's just creepy. And Jack's definitely not his friend. Thanks Janna. :)

  10. Um, I'm thinking he might not be able to hold his liquor quite as well as he thinks... Great story Lumdog! :D
