Three-Word Prompt Challenge!

This challenge has ended!

Send me any three English words that take your fancy, please; I will write a short story or a poem that includes them all and also send a little greeting to you in thanks.
I love a challenge and want to get into the habit of writing daily and this will be a great incentive. If you want me to send YOU three words, let me know! Thank you!

INSTRUCTIONS:
To participate in this challenge, please ‘participate’ with the blue button on this page, and then write a sentence indicating that you’re challenging me and giving me three words, at least 60 characters totally including the three words, and I’ll do a sequel.
And if you want me to give you a challenge I can include that in my answer.

THANK YOU!!

    Thank you for all these!! I like how we have people writing new stories in spokes radiating from this hub…but maybe Scurvy Swab’s challenge would be fairer as not all stories would need to involve me. (http://ficly.com/challenges/1187)
    I’m sorry for being selfish in this n00b sort of way.

    We could also sequel with our own story for the 3 chosen words of the participants.

    Interesting use of the challenge feature, brave knight. It might be easier to comment your words here. Although, the only challenge participant would be you. Good thing you solved that, not that it matters, since you can’t really pick a winner in this backwards challenge.

    I hope I did it right. I gave you 3 words and followed it with a sentence of why I chose the words.

    That’s a good question, which I should answer above! I guess this is not the same sort of challenge as they were thinking of. It would be silly to have you publish a three word “story.” However, it would be nice to be able to do a story as a ‘sequel’ to your words. Well maybe…how about you ‘participate’ with the button above and then write a sentence indicating that you’re challenging me, at least 60 characters totally including the three words, and I’ll do a sequel. Sound OK? And if you want me to give you a challenge I can include that in my answer.

    Where and how do we send you said words? Here or in your notes maybe?

Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
