Ruby, Mae and Beauregard stopped Mister’s cart today.

This was written in response to this weekend's Trifecta Writing Challenge. The Rule of Three is a writing principle that asserts that, in writing, groups of three have the most impact. This week's challenge is to write 33 words using the Rule of Three somewhere among them. It is up to you to interpret the rule, just make sure to use exactly 33 words.
And if I were allowed to toss in an extra 12 words, they would be these:
“And toss old Ruby off the back.
Then there’ll be just Mae.”
