I am struggling badly with the Trifecta Challenge this week:

Trifecta: Week Sixty-Nine


3a : contaminate, corrupt <the inflated writing that infects such stories>

b : to work upon or seize upon so as to induce sympathy, belief, or support <trying to infect their salespeople with their enthusiasm>

Please remember:

  • Your response must be between 33 and 333 words.
  • You must use the 3rd definition of the given word in your post.
  • The word itself needs to be included in your response.

here, just beyond your Prussian cloud.

    I love the notion of physically handing over your point of view. Great job!
