Summer in 33 Words


This weekend's Trifecta Writing Challenge is to describe summer in 33 words.


Humidity overpowers air
Sleek becomes frizzy, R.I.P. sexy hair

Stovetop hiatus; oven, be still
Tag you’re it, Mr. Grill

“No-Shave November” stretched into May
Fur's gotta go now; bare legs on display

#


Dear poetry Nazis (myself included): The meter totally sucks, but please overlook that in the spirit of summer fun, OK? Thanks.

  9. Lol, fuzzy legs - one year you do not shave . Then you look down there is nothing to shave. I never thought I would miss hair on my legs. Now my chin is another matter.

    1. I don't think I would EVER miss my leg hair. Not a fan of the chin hair, either.
