Saturday Mix – Same Same But Different, 4 November 2017

Same Same But Different
Your ‘Same Same But Different’ task is to take the five challenge words and NOT use them in your writing. That’s right, you need to dig out your thesaurus and find a synonym for each word instead.

Your words are:

  1. odd
  2. fight
  3. start
  4. weak
  5. tired

Your writing form is either poetry or prose.

Thanks Sarah

It was strange (1) not getting her own way anymore.
Disagreement (2a) always led to a verbal punch up (2b) until one occasion when a physical blow landed.
That initial show of temper brought them both enlightenment with a jolt (3).
Gone was the pathetic (4) punching bag victim.
Now that she’d retaliated, the aggressor soon grew weary (5) of the domination game.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
