“I’m doing my bit for humanity after all. See that tooth there? It’s rotten. Without me, the dentist would never know”, says the lamp proudly.

  1. I love this! It’s a fun twist on the prompt, and lamps everywhere are thanking you right now for finally giving them the recognition they deserve! Well done!

  2. Ha! I actually thought the question was meant for the dentist. I liked this piece. 33 words? That’s some challenge. I find it hard to express in 55er. This is superb!

  3. I feel I may not even write my name in 33 words πŸ˜› I know a bad joke but this is really challenging , and a convo between patient and lamp is unique
