Mental Vacations

Trifextra prompt:  This weekend we are giving you three variations on a prompt.  We need you to give us 33 words back, and 2 of those words must be either "cheap flights," "sandwiched in" or "spectacularly clean."  This weekend, your piece must also be non-fiction (poetry or prose).  And yes, we reserve the right to call your mothers and former lovers to ask for verification on your tales.  You should call my husband--he often complains that I'm not listening when I mentally check out.

Sandwiched in between
Work, school, soccer games, and
The umpteenth trip  to
Whatever store, are
My 'cheap flights',
Moments or two
That might find me
Padding silently
Through vegetation
In search of prey.


  1. I love the ending. In search of prey. Nice.

  2. This so sounds like mt email inbox. :)

  3. Pad silently, always! Whenever you can.

  4. search of prey - perfect

    1. You are probably three times as busy--I only have one child to chase after!

  6. Very nice - THe busyness is so well described.

  7. Very well done ... I've got some great mental images going on now! Whether you intended them or not!!

  8. Those hectic days of school and sports were exhausting. A few minutes to yourself are definitely a needed break.

  9. Moments or two. Need those badly most days. Grab them when you can and pad silently!

  10. This indeed gave me a laugh. I needed it I have been watching TV about the school in Conn.
