Trifecta

This weekend's challenge: We are given the first 33 words of a story (in bold). We each need to complete it with exactly 33 of our own words (in ital).

Memories of 1972


“There’s nothing cute about it,” he said. The register of his voice indicated decision more so than discussion.

She disagreed heartily and privately, staring past his head and out the window behind him.

  7. Love it. Reminds me of my 'Ode to 1983' that I posted for the weekly challenge just this past week.

    David Cassidy. He just clicked up a notch for me since the passing of Davy Jones. Sigh.

  10. Oh, the memories! But since I was to young (and not brave enough, heh) to steal my mom's magazines, I had to settle for papering my bedroom and school locker with pics of his tamer brother, Shaun... bleh.

    I love it, Gal! ;-)

  11. Nice job! I remember everyone "liking" David Cassidy, and then there was this Bobby Sherman faction... And, I remember that The Partridge Family was on Fridays after The Brady Bunch :)

  12. I wonder, is this her dad finding the rag? Or a friend she's rationalizing to? Or maybe a husband finding the old copy in a box in the attic?
    Either way? The visual alongside and the piece itself were too fun.
    Came from the Trifextra linkup.
