Saturday Mix – Double Take, 28 March 2020

Welcome to the Sarah’s Saturday Mix, 28 March 2020!
Check it out below:

This week we are seeing double with ‘Double Take’.

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.

Our homophone sets this week are:

meat – animal flesh
meet – to connect
mete – a boundary


pride – ego
pryed – opened

During the outbreak, each had their own mete, but they agreed to meet up and exchange various types of meat for variety as one had chickens, one bred rabbits and the other had guinea fowl.

Pride goes before a fall they say. She was a nosy old biddy, toffee nosed to boot, but when she pryed open the casket, she was not prepared for what was inside……….. a pile of rocks. The old boy had fooled them all and absconded with the family loot.

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.

    That’s what I call an unexpected twist! Hope no gold diggers are out there taking notes….
