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.
