Take Seven 29th May

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:
assure, best, boom, bug, ease, film, fly, frustration, help, host, idiot, kind, long, misery, other, problem, rate, raw, show, sign, whole

This bug was getting everyone down. They’d said it was best to stay indoors, not to go out unless absolutely necessary. Trouble was the idiot that implemented that didn’t practice what he preached, and now there were calls for his blood and a host of other things but a resignation would do.
Oh to be a fly on the wall when The Powers That Be suddenly realised when they called for help, no-one would come. It was the only way the workers could show their frustration and inflict the same kind of misery on their leaders. Let them have problems with deliveries, doing the basics, living on a pittance, trying to assure family from a distance and keeping their loved ones safe.
No-one had anticipated it would be this long before some kind of normalcy would return. Even when things were eased, no-one wanted to go anywhere or do anything. It was as if the whole world had switched off, there was no interest in anything or anyone.
People avoided each other, friends turned their backs, conversation was a novelty. The divorce rate soared, yet nine months on from shutdown there was a population boom far exceeding the number of deaths.
Hollywood already had the film rights of course. Except no-one wanted to sign up for a fictitious reality show they had all actually lived through. The memories were too raw, too painful.

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.
