No Longer on the Honey-Do List

Trifextra: Week Ninety-One

It’s now time for some Trifextra fun. Thirty years ago, Roald Dahl published the book Dirty Beasts, a collection of poems for children about weird and wonderful animals. The last poem, however, is called The Tummy Beast about a boy who thinks there’s someone living in his belly. Your Trifextra challenge is to write 33 words on a beast in an unusual place. No swamps or forests or caves, we really want you to take your beast out of its comfort zone. - See more at:

"Get your coat! We gotta go!"


"You know the beastly hair clogs I'm always fishing outta the bathroom sink?"


"Well, this one just climbed out by itself and snarled at me."


  1. Nice. The first line made me wonder where they were going to find a beastie, but it looks like they were running from not to.

  2. Oh my!How scary-good that they are running out!Fun take on the prompt Renee:-)

  3. Yikes!! The phonecall is coming from inside the drain! Fun write! :))

  4. LOL Renee! And at my house, when we find clumps of dog hair under the furniture, we call them puppies:)

    This was fun!

  5. Haha, my husband just found one of those. Nasty :)

  6. Gross. Pretty sure there's one of those in my drain. I guess I'll have to move.

  7. Now that is scary!
    A great write.

  8. Yikes ! Great take on the prompt. Since I lose my hair I fear that I have one of this beast in my tub drain... I don't want to look for it...

  9. Ha! (also? I'm now afraid my long hair will be back to get me later!)
