I made the mother of all mistakes-
How could I forget the date?
I wonder if Mother will open the door at this hour
If I show up with a bouquet of flowers?
This weekend’s Trifextra is the first of its kind. This weekend we only need 32 words from you, because we’re giving you the 33rd. Your challenge is to write anything you want, in whichever form you please, so long as your response is exactly 33 words and includes the word “mother.”
Good luck! And to those of you women with children who have called, will call, or already do call attention to your natural process of aging: happy Mother’s Day.
