Trifextra: Foiled

Eat or be eaten?


I thought I had the upper hand. Confidence oozed from my pores.

But that damn rabbit found my Achilles’ heel.

Chocolate cream eggs. A lion’s share!

Ah well. No rabbit stew after all.


This is my submission for this weekend’s Trifextra challenge. We had to write exactly 33 words and include an idiom somewhere in the text. (Hopefully more than one is okay…)

  1. I have to tell you, just this morning my husband was reading “Funny Tweets” or “Ted tweets” or something like that and the joke was :
    “Foiled Again – Leftovers” I laughed for hours. Yep, I’m easily amused.

    that said, when I saw the name of your piece, i started giggling again.

    so suffice to say, I loved it. It’s perfect for this weekend.

    1. Thanks Kymm! Yeah, I have more Achilles’ heels than I do feet — good thing Easter bunnies don’t carry Pinot Noir. 😉 Happy Easter to you too!
