Saturday Mix – Sound Bite, 21 December 2019

This week we are 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:

  • chortle
  • flop
  • murmur 

You can join in by clicking here to read Sarah’s original post.
Uncle Ned used to chortle rather than laugh and we’d all join in as it sounded more like a cough choking in an echo chamber!
He also used to wear these horrendous flip flops in all weathers, and we’d hear him slapping his feet against the floorboards as he made his way into the lounge to flop down like an oversized jelly on the sofa.
Mother would murmur her annoyance rather than voice her anger. Anything to keep the peace as Uncle Ned could be a real pain in the butt sometimes.


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
