I recently learned about the Trifecta Writing Challenge via a couple of other blogs that I read. It is a weekly prompt (challenge, if you will) designed to inspire creative writing, and I have always wanted to participate. This week I actually found the time to do so! I have always enjoyed writing, and to me actual writing is different than blogging, so I welcomed this opportunity.
This week's challenge asked for 33 words in addition to and preceding the phase "that wasn't what I meant." My response is below. Enjoy!

He smiled and said:
"Don't let it go to your head!"
She gently leaned in, hoping he'd take the hint…
Until he said "Wait, that wasn't what I meant."
