The Nervous Actress

Five minutes before curtain, she was playing with her ring.

It fell, bounced twice on the seat, then fell into the back-stage toilet.

As it hit the water, she panicked and flushed.


Written for the Trifectra weekend challenge (Trifextra).  This weekend’s challenge was to use the words, ring, water, and stage in a 33 word story.

  1. hahaha – funny stuff. Reminds me of a joke about a man dropping a quarter into the toilet – wouldn’t go after it – tossed another quarter in . . . “25 cents, no . . . 50 cents yes.” Yeah, I know weird – your punchline is much better. 🙂

  2. I’d love to see what happens next. So many reasons for the panicked flush…right? Maybe my imagination is just running wild. I love when that happens. Thanks! And thank you for linking up! ~Mary Beth

  3. This brings to my mind (my silly one anyway) that she is OCD and the flushing is her OCD “anything in the toilet, flush”. I know. I’m weird.
