Remove by razor.

Wrap in a wrinkled piece of leather.

Hang from the neck by a twisted leather strap.




With this fetish I bid you for the last time wart begone.

33 words for Trifextra: Week Seventy-Three and the prompt third time’s the charm.  I remember how pesky the warts I had as a child were and what I tried to get rid of them.  Raw potato peel, Dr Scholl’s, finally the Dr used liquid nitrogen.  I even used liquid oxygen once when I was in the Air Force.  I wonder if a medicine bag would have down the trick.

  1. Ewwww but cool at the same time! I like these challenges….I’d like to try one! Where do you find them?

  2. That was different!

  3. I’m lucky never to have gone through this affliction! A medicine bag is the kind of thing I would have loved though 🙂

  4. sort of “out, out, damn spot!” 🙂

  5. I used to get plantar warts from marching band. I found it fascinating to dig them out to see the roots and the little hole left behind in the foot. ….but maybe I’m just weird >__> lol

  6. Whatever it takes to get rid of it, I say! I had a wart on my finger as a child. Thank goodness the second dose of liquid nitrogen worked…I didn’t really want to find out if the third time was the charm 🙂

  7. I love how you wrote different than everyone else. (including myself) Original.

  8. Here’s hoping it works! Love your creative take on the prompt. Well done!

  9. Enjoyed your unusual take on the prompt. You left us hanging though.
