Trifextra: She Who Wears the Invisible Crown

“What a loft Josie!” I exclaim.  “You really nailed it!”

“Game point,” she squeaks.

Grabbing the tether, she lobs the final shot.  I fake a swing and miss.

“Here’s your crown Josie! “


This was written for the Trifextra Weekend prompt:

This weekend we’re asking for 30 of your own words plus the three following words for a total of 33 words. Tether Loft Crown


I never had a little sister; but I’d like to think that if I had, I’d have let her win a game or two.  Though my little brother may beg to differ!


Stay positive & love your life!

  3. This is so sweet! When my competitive sons play tether ball, their goal is to nail each other. Last one standing, bleeding or not, wins. Yeesh!

  4. I like that you have a light and fun piece.

    • I try to balance out the depressing stuff I write. Ha. I wrote a piece about suicide yesterday that my Mom told me was “cute”. I said, “Mom, it’s about a guy with nothing left to live for.” She said, “I know, but I like the old timey language.” Love that she reads everything.
      Thanks for reading.

  5. Tetherball!! Summer camp and horseflies! And what kind of crown was that, exactly? Not poison sumac, I hope! haha

    My kids’ tetherball games get pretty cutthroat. I’m expecting a Marcia-Brady-football-to-the-nose moment one of these days.

  10. Ah, sibling games. Don’t talk to me about Monopoly! This took me back – thank you for the memories 🙂
