Three Line Tales
We are to use the photo as the prompt to write
something using only three lines.

What are we doing here and why were we invited?
Why is it so cold in here, with such uncomfortable chairs and
why don’t we know any of these people who won’t talk
to us or even look at us?
We’ve been here forever…where’s the bathroom?

  1. What an odd pic, right? Is that the capital in the background? You got a great story out of the prompt – I’m always hunting the bathroom when I’m outside home too! LOL!

    1. The photographer’s name links to his site. I went there but I can’t remember the caption. I always want to know where the bathroom is even if I don’t need it.

  2. Good job! I really miss Five Sentence Fiction. She was going to re-start it in January, but didn’t. She doesn’t respond to emails, either. Sad.

      1. Yes, I have had those thoughts. I have been to many a meeting where people won’t even smile. Then I’ve been to meetings where everyone is bubbly and outgoing. Knowing where the bathroom is gives me a sense of comfort. I guess it’s because I don’t have to spend a lot of time and ask several people trying to find it.

  3. Hey Patricia, welcome to TLT – so glad you’ve joined in 🙂

    Your lines evoke a real nightmare party – so of course there’s no bathroom 😀
