Saturday Mix – Same Same But Different, 24 March 2018

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:

  1. lie
  2. dive
  3. realise
  4. pass
  5. red

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.

Thanks Sarah.

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.

    This sounds like a nightclub I used to frequent back in the day 😉 great job using the words. I especially like how you used a different synonym for ‘dive’ rather than the literal!

    • There were four all in one block, the two at ground level were actually a twofer, so you had access to both. Great if you liked James Brown (which I didn’t) but when they played the sixties, I was rarely sitting down!
