Bethamphetamine

In school I knew a pretty girl named Beth. I called her Liz. She wanted to be rich, famous and gone. She got it all. She’s on Celebrity Rehab, seasons five and six.

This is fiction, but not by much. It’s my 33 word entry for Trifecta’s Trifextra: http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/ On to the weekend challenge.  The Monkey’s
Paw
, a short story by W.W. Jacobs, is about the strings that come with
granted wishes.  We are asking you to write 33 words exactly about three wishes
that come at a high price to the wisher.

Today’s song is by my fellow Georgia boy, who knows a lot of these girls (and boys). Here’s Bethamphetamine. Yes, that Avril in the video. Crank it, anyway.

    Sharp use of the prompt. Those are the worst wishes, in my opinion. Too open for interpretation and consequences undesired. Yikes!

        Me too, Lance, only most were more of the rock/rhythm/blues women of the 80s and 90s. Different crowds, same basic human issues. It is nice to have pulled through those years with a few more tools in the proverbial toolkit, but I still miss some of them horribly.
