Double Take Challenge: Saturday Mix 17th March

The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Over to Sarah for details:

Our homophone sets this week are:

auricle – external part of the ear
oracle – seer


hoard – a great stash
horde – a great many people
whored – prostituted

She was slightly miffed that she didn’t get to meet the elusive Oracle when she went for her medical. The doctor made such a fuss of pushing her hair out the way and probing her auricle, she couldn’t believe it was supposed to be to see into her future.

She ignored the sign. Having found this great hoard of cash under the bed, it could be her ticket out of here.
She didn’t seem too worried about the horde of people queuing outside, until she heard a rather dismaying comment.
If only she’d bothered to read the damn sign, then she would have realised what the money was for and why there was so much of it.
Aunt May had whored her way through the clientelle waiting to sample her predecessor.

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.
