time for ice cream?

I was alone in our apartment and, strangely, still hungry for ice cream.

I’d asked if she was ready to leave, but she packed her things and left before I could stop her.

That wasn’t what I meant.

Word Count: 38

This bit of silly sadness brought to you in response to this week’s Trifextra:

We want 33 words in addition to and preceding the following:

That wasn’t what I meant.

So, to clarify, you write 33 words and then you tag on the five that we’ve given you. Β Our five come after your 33 for a grand total of 38.

And you, dear kingdomite, how would you get to that closing line?Β  What have you said before that someone took differently from how you meant it?

    • Thanks!
      I’m not entirely thrilled with the order of the sentences… because I’d rather end with the ice cream line, but, the Trifecta people are sticklers for their rules.

  1. Yes, the ice cream would make him feel better.

    It seems a lot of the nonsensical conversations I have with the teenager in my house end in one or the other saying “That wasn’t what I meant.”

      • Well, job well done then! πŸ™‚ I finally have you on Bloglovin so I can follow better. When I try to follow along on the WP reader, I always lose posts somehow!

      • Yeah. The WP Reader isn’t the best. I think it has to do with the number of tags I use sometimes… I’m not sure.
        And, I should really check out Bloglovin…. one of these days.

  2. I couldn’t resist and sent to a friend as well

    β€œI love you.”
    β€œI love you too.” He looped the rope around her wrists.
    β€œI trust you but what is the knife for?”
    β€œYou said you love me. I am demonstrating my devotion.”
    β€œThat wasn’t what I meant.”

  3. Sad. Do you like your creations to be sad?
    (As to your question: yes. I’ll say something completely innocent, but they’ll understand it as something very crude. It’s on purpose though, because my friends never really grew up XP)
