This week Sarah sets us the task of hearing things as we explore the use of ONOMATOPOEIA.
You will need to use the THREE onomatopoeic words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our three words, using onomatopoeia are:
Eight year old Christopher winced as he watched his older sister pluck her eyebrows.
‘Doesn’t that hurt?’ he asked.
Her reflection grinned at him.
‘Not if you do it right,’ she said. ‘You’re lucky, boys don’t have to do it when they get older.’
‘Yeah, and I’m not shaving my legs either!’
She hugged him and shooed him out of her room so that she could get dressed for her prom.
The honk of her boyfriend’s car horn echoed in the street half an hour later.
He bounded up to the front door and knocked.
Her Dad was ready with the camera and sappy grin.
‘You kids have a good time!’ he said.
‘You look great!’ he said. ‘Want to drive tonight?’
‘So you can have a drink you mean.’
‘It’ll only be one or two and you know I won’t drink and drive.’
‘I wouldn’t mind a glass of wine myself, so why don’t we flip for it?’
‘That’s fair,’ he replied and fished a coin out of his pocket.
‘Heads or tails?’
‘You pick!’ she giggled, snuggling into his arms as they walked down the path.
