TWC: "Chicken Little"

Those aficionados of Tex Winter's triangle offense at the Trifecta Writing Challenge made their weekend challenge another 33 worder, this time about the word "hyperbole". This is obviously inspired by very recent events in Russia, but partial credit goes to my brother in law @couchoud, who reminded me of Chicken Little this morning on Twitter. Appropriately, this is called "Chicken Little".







"Is it still hyperbole," she thought as her tea sloshed onto her bare thigh and the light streaked across the gentle blue sky and her walls rattled, "if the sky really is falling?"

  1. This was only a bit of the sky. Hopefully there won't be any more for a while! Nice writing!

  2. Good one! I guess not. (I never thought I'd see a Tex Winter reference on Trifecta... but now that I think about it, those two are tri-obsessed...

  3. I vote for no hyperbole, though it was an object falling out of the sky. Close enough. good one.
