Trifextra: Week Fifty-five
For this weekend's challenge we're asking you to include some hyperbole in your piece.  It doesn't have to be the whole piece, but it needs to be in there, and we're looking for 33 words, as usual.





"Its just a little spider."

"The size of a softball!"  I pulled my feet clear of the floor.

"Or a quarter..."

"A quarter pounder! See! The cats just packed their bowls and left!"

    1. Actually, they totally ignored it. It was big enough they probably just thought it was another pet.

  10. Yeah, cats are never any help, are they? Personally, I don't find the hyperbole in your piece Renee. Softball? Basketball, maybe. lol
