Trifextra 53: Where the Wild Things Are

10 Feb

“This weekend we are venturing into uncharted territories once again.  This Trifextra isn’t so viagra prescription online much a writing challenge; it’s more of a reading challenge.  We want you to scour through your favorite pieces of literature and give us the best 33 words you can find. “

 

…so he gave up being king of where the wild things are.  But the wild things cried, “Oh, please don’t go–we’ll eat you up–we love you so!”  And Max said, “No!”

 

From Maurice Sendak‘s Where the Wild Things Are.  The dude scared and fascinated generations of children and spawned a pretty cool movie with an awesome soundtrack.

Hear it read, with some badass commentary, by Christopher Walken if you want a good laugh.

But for the true awesome and some pee in your pants hilarity watch the old man in action.  RIP, Maurice.  I’ll eat you up I love you so.

    Fantastic choice for the quote. I adore this book; it was such a delight to read as a child, and then to study year later as a university student.

    Thanks for sharing. :)

    I’ve never read Where The Wild Things Are :( I think I’ve missed out a big part of my childhood there :( But I love the quote :D And how they will eat him up because they love him… I love the opposing emotions there :D

    This is one of those books that I somehow missed reading as a child, but got to read with Katarina when she was young.

    Younger. Sheesh. I just made it sound like she is going to be collecting social security any day now.

    Great quote pick.

    Also. I’m so happy to see you this morning. You have been missed, my friend.

    When I was getting rid of books the kids had outgrown, this was one of the few that stayed behind. Some books I can’t bear to part with.

    My son loves that book. Whenever we read the title, he looks at me like I’m stupid, points to one of the wild things and says “Right dere Momma.”
