Where This Meets That

Wednesday Wordplay – The Secret of Tic-Tac-Toe

I have a secret.

Tic Tac breath mintsOne I have hidden for all my days, and the kind some might hide for a lifetime.

As a boy among boys who always challenged me to impromptu games of Tic Tac Toe, I was, indeed, always challenged.

The mere breath of the words wrenched at me.




I always panicked, because it made me think that all the other kids knew my secret and were naming me instead of truly inviting me to play.

See, I have a secret. I keep it deep down, inside my very shoe.

My secret.  My Tic Tac Toe.

Tic Tac Toe

P.S., So, if you’ve ever seen me run and wondered how I could be so slow, well, now you know it’s my Tic Tac Toe.
