Into the unknown

The trip promised countless surprises and new adventures at every turn. What I didn’t expect was found at the other end of the tunnel. But none of that matters. We are Disney bound!

My response to this week’s Trifecta Trifextra 33 word writing challenge to include a justified exclamation point!

I would argue that a 20 hour drive to Disney with the HS Marching Band’s equipment warrants an exclamation point or two. Or four if we’re counting the 20 hour return trip.

    If we were going to Disney, it’d have an exclamation on it too.

    What I say to all those who sacrifice, “thank you for your service.”

      Thanks, Booguloo! Well worth the effort. Band performed this morning, so it’s all play from here. Then, it’s heaven-help-my-tush for the 2-day trip home.

    Ah, I remember those band trips. Fun. Not fun. Nicely done.

  5. Oh man, you are a MARTYR. That sounds exhausting!

    OK, I remember several marching band trips. Were we really that bad? Buncha teens at Disney? Yes, interesting, may deserve a bit of emotion. Hat’s off to you. Evelyn

      Thanks, Evelyn. One significant advantage of being here as an equipment chaperon is that I’m not a TEEN chaperon. :) Oh, and … this place is crawling with teens – 3 HS bands march each morning. They really cater to this crowd.

    I agree, if you can’t use an exclamation mark on the way to Disney, when can you use it? Thanks for linking up. I enjoyed this piece a lot. Hope to see you for the weekday challenge.

      Thanks, Trifecta! I appreciate your hosting these prompts and encouraging this community. I plan on catching the prompt and since I’m off work, fully expect to meet the deadline this week.
