A few well placed words ...

This weeks Trifecta is to write 33 words about advise.




The tux and I were both untucked.
Sitting behind reception hall reflecting.
Grandpa Jack appeared to be lost.
Covering for him I asked for advise.
"Peace in surrender my boy" he said and smiled.

  9. Peace in surrender? So what does that mean, instead of "I do" what he's really saying is "I give up" ? ;)

  12. Yeah, exactly what Gina said. It's excellent marital advice so long as both people buy in. Otherwise, I sense a breaking point somewhere down the road. :-)
