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.
