Take Seven: May 1st

It’s Friday! Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.

Our words were:
argue, bloom, catch, chain, danger, entry, green, heat, hedge, last, may, mistake, point, rump, shot, slide, switch, teeth, thick, twitch, vapour.

He made the mistake of saying she had an ample rump, as if she was a piece of his prized beef.
He was too thick to see the danger signs, thinking he had a green light to make his point at her expense. She could argue that he may not know any better, liked to hedge his bets so to speak, and appear to be one of the lads, but this would be the last time she’d let it slide.
In the heat of the moment, she shot him down in flames with an acid tongue he didn’t know she possessed. She saw his eye twitch, a sign that he was nervous or angry, and then the embarrassed bloom of a flush to his cheeks. It felt good to switch the chain of conversation to his shortcomings or little quirks, like placing his false teeth on a silver dish on the dresser, how he suffered the vapours like an old maid when he exerted himself beyond climbing the stairs, or had to use a quill pen to write an entry in his journal.
When he spoke, he had a catch in his voice as he regarded her in a totally different light for standing up to him.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

  2. Some women might think that having an ample rump is a compliment.

    • Maybe, but ‘does my bum look big in this’ might not agree! I must admit I’ve lost 14 inches off my hips and it’s nice to be able to touch my toes again as well as see them!

  3. a man argues about the meaning of life
    looking out at the world around him
    catching the love of his life
    bound by her chains of love
    surrounded by danger
    he hides the entry to his heart
    in a green garden
hidden behind the hedges
    planted in the last days
    of the month of May
    Make no mistake
    he pointed out to his love
    as he sat down on his naked rump
    He shot at the devils
    sliding out hell
    filled with giant teeth
    the world is soon thick
    twice the devils come at him
    trying to kill him with their hellish vapors
