Trifextra Week Fifty-Two: The Car

Ohboyohboyohboy!!! This was fun πŸ™‚ The Trifextra challenge this week points us back to literary devices. And today, kiddies, the word is “personification.” Below is my entry, entitled, “The Car;” for all 70’s Saturday afternoon creep show fans, this is for us!

“Evil has visited the Earth in many forms:” If still alive, tyrannosaurs would envy its teeth; the throaty growl of its engine makes grown men cry. Beneath a black coat, its muscles ripple.

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ And you can call me Andree’ (that’s my first name…Neal is my last name. I go by AR Neal online because people always want to assume, with a name like Andree’, that I am a dude; I am simply the recipient of cosmopolitan parents who thought the French female derivation of a name was hip back in the 60s) πŸ™‚

      1. Lol !That’s cute-I understand your predicament for I always had to add my name while working cos ppl thought I was a male!GN from me now Andree’-pleased to meet “you”:-)

        1. Yes! For sure! I often have added “Mrs.” but it didn’t deter people sometimes…and then it became even harder after I got my EdD, so the post would come with Dr. on it for me and people always assumed I was a man. Sigh. πŸ™‚

          1. Thank you πŸ™‚ If I had been a boy, I would have been Andrew (hence the whole Andree’ thing)…dad really wanted a boy. But in the end, I think he was fairly okay with how I turned out. πŸ™‚

          2. Oh,am sorry to hear that-I lost mine about recently-2011 & as you know my Mom before that in 2010-but I agree with you-those who love us,do keep an eye on our well being & bless us with their smiles from time to time:-)

  1. If it is ok with you, I’ll just call you CHAMP! Congratulations on this week’s win. Your writing merits such praise. As for this post, campy is definitely the nicest word to be said for that movie! OMG it is so awful. The terrified horse’s eye close up slays me! Anyway, thanks for an uplifting, funny bit of writing. I enjoyed this a lot!

    1. (curtsies) Glad to make you smile! A favorite scene, speaking of the horse’s eye is the weird upside down guy shot when the car drops down onto the parade track…classic ‘special effects’!

    bwahhahahahahaha! How have I missed this movie? Hubbymoose is the GREATEST in bringing home “B” movies and i think this would fit right in with his “stinker” list.

    Your piece, however? perfect! πŸ™‚

    1. It is fitting to the film particularly; there are a few scenes where the car is idling, and the only thing the image suggests is rippling muscles!
