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 this week are:
The place was gross, a real pits (2), and always had been.
Gone were the days of disco and freebie parties, when we’d fib (1) about our age to get in. Even if the promoters did know (3), they had our money now so didn’t care. It was all about the numbers, right?
The ‘Shark’ stamped on our hand was our ticket (4) through the door.
Dark corners and poor lighting hid threadbare carpets, cracked seats, and scratched tables. It also made us forget our ugliness and inhibitions, our eyes turning bloodshot (5) from the dense cigarette smoke.
