It had been two years ago, George had accepted the invitation to join a rather exclusive organization. The president, Andre, had told George, “You’ll love our group. Nobody ever leaves!”
Andre had been right. George found that the organization had so much going for it. Filet Mignon dinners each Tuesday, fancy dress balls on the first Friday of each month, the best seats in hundreds of theaters and restaurants throughout the county. These and many other benefits made the $1000.00 per month dues seem almost worth-while. Almost. But there was something that George couldn’t put his finger on…something not quite right with this organization, so he had finally made his decision, walked up to Andre after the Tuesday meal and said, “I’ve decided to cancel my membership.
Now George found himself running for his life. He thought that Andre had been making him a promise when he said, “nobody ever leaves”. Too late, he realized that it was a rule…”Nobody ever leaves the club.”
This week’s Trifecta challenge was to use the 3rd definition of the word “club” (from the Miriam Webster dictionary)
