Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Every day I’ll give you three words or things that will hopefully trigger your creativity.
No need to use them all if you don’t want to, simply read the prompt and see what comes to mind.
You can use the 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and the new logo if you wish.
There are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave a link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly.
Bear in mind although the challenge will go out around 6.30am UK time, pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately if I’m late accessing my blog.
Thanks for all your continued support. I look froward to reading your responses.
Your three words/things today are:
Here’s my take:
Sybil always caught the tube to work. A rather smart young man caught her eye and smiled at her, leaving her at a loss for words and blushing madly.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
Cute mini-story – potential for start of a love story – nicely done. Since I doubted Sybil sailed to work each morn I brought up the definition of word ‘tube’ and discovered it referred to the subway system in London. Different countries – different meanings. 🙂
It’s amazing isn’t it.
The postman had been and this morning had woken Jeff up, there was a parcel. Silly really how he still got excited about something other than brown envelopes in the mail. He liked to try and guess what was inside, the anticipation was almost as pleasing as the actual parcel. It was a long thin tube, what could it be, a poster or a telescope? He knew that was an outrageous idea but it pleased him. He smiled. A sudden disturbance jolted him from his thoughts, his new smart phone was ringing, he just wasn’t used to the sound yet. He picked it up and a voice came through loud and clear.
“Has it arrived?” A gruff voice, almost menacing.
“Who is this?”
“Just open the parcel… carefully!” With that the line went silent.
Jeff was intrigued and more than a little nervous, at a loss as to what to do next he decided to go and make a cup of tea and think it over. After all, the chase is far superior to the kill.
interesting story…………. is there going to be more?
I dont think so. He might die if he opens the package. Or maybe the next 3 words you do will see him unwrap the package. Who knows😉🤔🤩
given me food for thought…………………….. 🙂
Hi I know I’m late for you but for me its afternoon.:)
No problem Jen, there;s no time limit. The challenge goes out at 6.30 am UK time, but I;m always pleased to see a response no matter what the time is here.
Ok Good! 😊💜

Nice short story.
We were told that he had a loss of hearing. That smarted. After tubes were put in his ears to drain fluid, his hearing returned and he finally started to speak coherently.
