This week we are dipping our toes into the pool of OPPOSITES. Our challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. You will need to use the two opposing words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our words this week are:
– broad and narrow
– funny and serious
‘Just a thought’ thoughts:
You can have broad beans but not narrow beans.
We lived on a narrowboat but friends had a widebeam not a broadboat.
However, we often say people have narrow hips or are broad across the beam when describing their lower shape.
Have you ever thought that we all have a funny bone, but not a serious one?
My folks said it seemed funny to see me so serious when Hubby and I got married in the registry office. They thought I was about to burst into tears any minute, which I found funny!
All a figure of speech I guess.
