For this weekend’s Trifextra challenge: Forty-three years ago today, Neil Armstrong became the first person to ever walk on the moon. In celebration of Moon Day we want you to write 33 words about someone who took a giant leap. It can mean whatever you’d like, just make sure you write exactly 33 words.

Countless millennia ago someone picked up an egg and thought, “You know what sounds good? Busting this open and eating the mucousy liquid inside.” Crazy? Visionary? Really hungry? Yes! And we’re forever grateful.

    When I read the prompt, this was totally not what I was thinking. Nice job…


  2. trifectawriting says:

    Ha ha! Too funny. I always think of that–who was the first nut who decided to go ahead and give this a whirl? Hungry people is my guess, too. Great job with the prompt. Thanks for linking up.


  3. rangewriter says:

    Awesome. You’re so clever.


  4. Jeanna says:

    Oh my goodness. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had the conversation about who was the first person to ever say, “Hey look at that thing that came out of that chicken’s butt! Let’s try it.”


  5. Lynne Ayers says:

    Another conundrum. Who indeed would take the leap?


  6. munchow says:

    What would the world have been without that inspirational thought of opening an egg? Breakfast would never have been the same. I am sure even Neil Amstrong would have agreed, don’t you think?


  7. Hmmm… which came first, the chicken lover or the egg eater. Hmmmmmmm.


  8. yes, someone had to be the first 🙂 Great job with the prompt!


  9. surroundedbyimbeciles says:

    I always wondered who the person was who said, “Let’s drink that white stuff coming out of that cow.”


  10. The next day as most important though. That was the day he made BACON!!! Haha! Great job!


  11. Gina says:

    Ahhhhh! Ode to what many call the perfect food. Love it. Over easy please!


  12. jannatwrites says:

    I am thankful for that person. Chocolate chip cookies wouldn’t be the same without an egg 🙂


  13. Very innovative take


  14. I feel that way about whoever was the first to eat lobster and crab.


  15. I often think that about foods we eat now. The egg is definitely a perfect example!


  16. Lumdog says:

    Nicely said. I think you answered the age-old question. The egg came before the chicken! Otherwise, he would have eaten the chicken and there would be no egg.


Whatcha got to say?
